MEGA Millions® Ticket Worth More Than $161,000 Claimed by Yucaipa Woman


SACRAMENTO – On October 19, there was one California winner in the MEGA Millions draw who managed to match five out of six numbers to win a prize worth $161,038. This morning, that winner came into the Lottery’s Inland Empire District Office to claim her prize.

Adeline Martinez is the big winner! She purchased her ticket at Sunshine Liquor, which is located at 34253 Yucaipa Boulevard in Yucaipa (San Bernardino County). Her ticket successfully matched the numbers 14, 48, 36, 34 and 53, missing only the Mega number of 42.

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.

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. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s MEGA Millions site for more information.
