Daily Derby® Ticket Worth Over $300,000 Claimed
SACRAMENTO – Debra Pritchett is either really good at playing the Lottery or just extremely lucky. Earlier today, Pritchett walked into the California Lottery’s Santa Fe Springs District Office holding a Daily Derby ticket worth $324,170! She told us that she has previously won Daily 3, Daily 4 and just a few weeks ago, she won $388 playing Daily Derby. She says her secret to success is that she always plays the same numbers.
Pritchett purchased the winning ticket at 42nd Discount Store, which is located at 4228 South Western Avenue in Los Angeles. The winning horses were: 1st place – 11 – Money Bags; 2nd place – 7 – Eureka; and 3rd place – 5 – California Classic. The winning race time was 1:46.53.
Daily Derby combines the fun and excitement of horse racing with several ways to win, including the chance to win twice on a single ticket. This unique game was the first horse racing-themed game in the U.S. played on regular Lottery terminals. The game can be played at any of the Lottery’s 21,000 retailers by selecting three horses from a field of 12; one to finish 1st, one to finish 2nd, one to finish 3rd; and a race time.
Lottery players can pick their horses before 6:30 p.m. for the current day’s draw. The Daily Derby draw is held after 6:30 p.m., at which time you can get winning information from your retailer’s terminal, or you can visit the Lottery’s website at www.calottery.com/winningnumbers/ for the results.
The California Lottery wants to remind winners to sign the back of their tickets, 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.
And remember, checking the daily draw results is easier than ever. All past and current Lottery draw results can be obtained for FREE by dialing 1-800-LOTTERY and selecting option 1, or via our website at www.calottery.com.
