Orange County MEGA Millions® Ticket Worth $159,000!
SACRAMENTO – A MEGA Millions ticket sold in Tustin was just one number away from hitting last night’s massive $61 million jackpot. The ticket, which successfully matched five numbers, is worth $159,593.
The MEGA Millions ticket was sold at the Chevron located at 17241 17th Street in Tustin (Orange County).
The lucky ticket correctly matched the numbers 8, 52, 46, 35, and 15, missing only the Mega number of 38.
No one matched all six numbers last night, so Tuesday’s MEGA Millions jackpot is an estimated $70 million.
