Bay Area and LA Mega Millions® Tickets Each Worth $468,000!
SACRAMENTO – It turned out to be a great start to the weekend for two Mega Millions players in the Bay Area and Los Angeles. That’s because both tickets matched five of six winning numbers in last night’s Mega Millions drawing making each ticket worth $468,905!
Both tickets matched the numbers 39, 10, 59, 28 and 51, missing just the Mega number 14.
The Los Angeles winning ticket was purchased at the C&D located at 3680 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles.
The Bay Area winning ticket was purchased at San Leandro Express Liquors located at 138 West Juana Avenue in San Leandro (Alameda County).
With no jackpot winners the Mega Millions jackpot rolls over and is worth an estimated $121 million this Tuesday.
