Second SoCal MEGA Millions® Win Claimed


SACRAMENTO – Two lucky tickets matched the right numbers and won $269,746 in the November 20 MEGA Millions draw. Now the second and remaining winner has come forward to claim his prize.

Adel Haddad purchased his winning ticket at the 7-Eleven located at 6915 North Rosemead in San Gabriel. With quick pick numbers, he successfully matched five numbers, 9, 52, 13, 22, 38, missing only the Mega number of 44.

Before claiming his prize, Haddad did as the California Lottery recommends all players do with winning tickets – sign the back, 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.
