Milpitas Powerball® Ticket Worth $425.3 Million Remains Unclaimed
SACRAMENTO – One month. That’s how long it’s been since a Powerball ticket, purchased in Milpitas, matched all six numbers to win a staggering $425.3 million jackpot. Yet, there’s still no sign of the big winner. Perhaps he or she is still putting a game plan together before claiming, or maybe the ticket is sitting on a dresser or in a wallet, unchecked. Whatever the case may be, we will not know who the winner is until the ticket is claimed.
The winning ticket was sold at Dixon Landing Chevron, which is located at 1551 California Circle in Milpitas. It successfully matched the winning numbers from the February 19th draw – 17, 49, 54, 35, 1 and the Powerball number 34. The ticket is worth $425.3 million, but if our lucky winner chooses the cash option, he or she would be looking at an estimated lump sum amount of $242.2 million *before* federal taxes.
The retail location is a big winner too! Dixon Landing Chevron received a $1 million bonus just for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.
We strongly encourage any Lottery winner to immediately SIGN THE BACK OF THEIR TICKET IN INK and claim the prize at ANY of the California Lottery’s nine District Office Locations. The one closest to where the Milpitas ticket was sold is our East Bay District Office, which is located at 2489 Industrial Parkway West in Hayward, (510) 670-4630.
