Two California POWERBALL® Tickets Split More Than Half a Million Dollars


POWERBALL Jackpot Climbs to $140 Million

SACRAMENTO – Even though no one matched all six numbers in last night’s $116 million POWERBALL jackpot, two players did match five out of six numbers and will split a prize worth $561,260, making each ticket worth $280,630. That means that Saturday night’s POWERBALL jackpot has rolled to $140 million.
One of the winning tickets was sold at 7-Eleven, which is located at 530 Morello Avenue in Martinez (Contra Costa County). The other ticket was sold at Jay’s Market, which is located at 13414 East Ramona Boulevard in Baldwin Park (Los Angeles County). Both tickets successfully matched the numbers 9, 59, 31, 56, and 19, missing only the Powerball number of 2.
The estimated cash value for Saturday night’s draw is $91.3 million.

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.

POWERBALL is a multistate game, played in California and 44 other jurisdictions (42 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Players pick five numbers from 1 to 59 plus a Powerball number from 1 to 35. Draw times are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:59 p.m. PST. Tickets sales are suspended from 7:00 PM to 7:05 PM the day of the draw. Tickets are $2 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers.
