Two SoCal Winning Tickets Worth Nearly $530,000!
SACRAMENTO – Two lucky Southern California Lottery players got through the middle of the week by winning $529,977 combined!
The first winning ticket matched five of the six numbers in last night’s Powerball® drawing. That ticket matched the numbers 55, 2, 7, 1 and 9 but missed the Powerball number 29. That ticket was sold at the Circle K located at 16331 Lakeshore Drive in Lake Elsinore (Riverside County) and is worth $347,092. No one won last night’s Powerball jackpot which means Saturday’s drawing climbs to $152 million!
The second lucky ticket was a Fantasy 5 top prize- winning ticket in last night’s drawing that matched all five winning numbers of 39, 9, 28, 25 and 4. That ticket was purchased at Myung’s Liquor, which is located at 8210 San Fernando Road in Sun Valley (Los Angeles County) and is worth $182,885.
The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their tickets, keep them 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.
