The Winning Across California Continues


More MEGA Millions® Millionaires May Be Made Tonight!

SACRAMENTO – While no one in California hit Wednesday’s $400 Million POWERBALL® jackpot, plenty of players cashed in big time on games across the state this week, including these two lucky California State Lottery players:

• Arturo Oropeza won the $250,000 top prize on a Win It All Scratchers® ticket he purchased at Bell Liquor Market, which is located at 963 Bluebell Drive in Livermore (Alameda County); and

• Patricia Dixon won $194,293 by matching all five numbers on a Fantasy 5 ticket she purchased at The Bottle Shop, which is located at West 58 Sierra Madre Boulevard in Sierra Madre (Los Angeles County).

There could be more lucky Californians starting tonight, as the MEGA Millions jackpot has grown to $145 million. Saturday’s POWERBALL jackpot is now at $40 million, while Saturday’s SuperLotto Plus® jackpot has grown to $12 million. Winning numbers for all three games can be found at shortly after the 7:59 p.m. draw times.

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.
