$199,000 Fantasy 5 Winning Ticket Sold in La Verne
SACRAMENTO – If your New Year’s resolution was to have more money, you may be in luck. That’s because there were two big Lottery winners on New Year’s Day in Southern California. One lucky ticket sold in La Puente matched all six winning numbers in last night’s SuperLotto Plus draw and is now worth $8 million. Another lucky ticket sold at a Lottery retail location in La Verne matched all five numbers in last night’s Fantasy 5 draw to claim a top prize worth almost $200,000.
The $8 million winning ticket in last night’s SuperLotto Plus drawing was purchased at Liquor Deli, which is located at 595 South Azusa Avenue in La Puente (Los Angeles County). That ticket matched all six winning numbers - 9, 19, 3, 42, 24 and the Mega number 16. That lucky retailer will receive a bonus of one half percent or $40,000 for selling the winning ticket.
The $199,164 winning ticket in last night’s Fantasy 5 drawing was purchased at the Circle K located at 2210 D Street in La Verne (Los Angeles County).
