MEGA Millions® Ticket Sold in Los Angeles Worth More Than $411,000 Still Unclaimed


SACRAMENTO – One lucky California Lottery player who purchased their MEGA Millions ticket in Los Angeles for the draw on November 29 won a prize worth $411,656. But one month later, the mystery winner has yet to claim their prize.

The winning ticket was sold at Kopper Keg, which is located at 3237 Glendale Boulevard in Los Angeles. The ticket matched the numbers 52, 48, 29, 43, and 17, missing only the Mega number of 36.

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

MEGA Millions is a multistate game, played in California and 43 other jurisdictions (41 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Players pick five numbers from 1 to 56 plus a Mega number from 1 to 46. Draw times are Tuesdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. PST. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s MEGA Millions site for more information. 

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities.  More than 94 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.  Since 2000, Lottery players have contributed $1 billion to public schools each year, and, since we began in 1985, Lottery players have contributed a total of more than $24 billion to education.  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.
