Million Dollar Powerball® Ticket Sold


SACRAMENTO – If you bought a Powerball ticket in San Diego County, you are going to want to find it and immediately sign the back of that little piece of paper and claim it as yours. That’s because it could very well be worth $1 million!

The ticket we are talking about matched five numbers, missing only the Powerball number in last night’s drawing. Now, listen up. This particular ticket was sold at Mission Market Place, which is located at 3772 Mission Avenue in Oceanside.

Let’s narrow this down even more. These are the winning draw numbers you need to look for:  29-48-36-19-25. Like we said, this ticket missed the Powerball number, which was 12. A ticket in Florida got that and scored $150 million, but our lucky California winner is a lot richer too. The ticket sold in Oceanside is worth an impressive $1,079,602 to whoever has it! There’s even more good news. The lucky retailer will also receive a bonus of $5,398 for selling that winning ticket.

If you check your numbers and realize that you have the win, the California Lottery reminds you to take your signed ticket to any of the nine Lottery District Offices as soon as possible. As a matter of fact, we have one in San Diego. It is located at 5656 Ruffin Road. The phone number if you want to call is (858) 492-1700. 
Powerball is a multistate game played in California (and 42 other states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Draw times are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:59 p.m. PST. Tickets sales are suspended from 7:00 p.m. to 7:05 p.m. the day of the draw. Tickets are $2 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s Powerball site for more information on how to play.
The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 95 cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
