MEGA Millions® Ticket Sold in Murrieta Worth Nearly $163,000


SACRAMENTO – While no one managed to match all six numbers in last night’s MEGA Millions draw, one lucky California Lottery player woke up this morning to news of a nice little windfall. That’s because they successfully matched five of six numbers to claim a prize worth $162,859.

The lucky player purchased their ticket at the Murrieta 76, which is located at 39460 Murrieta Hot Springs Road in Murrieta. The ticket matched the numbers 49, 41, 53, 20 and 23, missing only the Mega number of 31. No one managed to match all six numbers in last night’s draw, so Tuesday’s MEGA Millions jackpot will be $24 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.

MEGA Millions is a multistate game, played in California and 41 other states. 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.

Since 2000, Lottery players have contributed $1 billion to public schools each year, and, since we began in 1985, Lottery players have contributed more than $23 billion to education.
