West Sacramento Powerball® Ticket Worth $487,000!


Jackpot Soars to Nearly $200 Million and Growing by the Day

SACRAMENTO – There’s a nip in the morning air, but one lucky winner no doubt has a warm feeling knowing they’re going to be walking away with nearly half a million dollars! That’s because they matched five of six numbers during last night’s Powerball draw.

The lucky ticket matched the winning numbers 3, 26, 28, 34 and 42 – missing only the Powerball number of 28. The winning ticket was purchased at Century Chevron, which is located at 1015 Jefferson Boulevard in West Sacramento. Since no one matched all six numbers, Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is now worth $186 million!

The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their tickets, keep tickets in a safe place and visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible. Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes.

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 96 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.
