POWERBALL® Ticket Sold in Milpitas Wins $1.1 Million!


No One Wins Jackpot, Wednesday Night’s Jackpot at $400 Million!

SACRAMENTO – While no one matched all six numbers in last night’s POWERBALL drawing, one lucky player who bought their ticket in Milpitas did match five out of six numbers and that ticket is worth $1,159,103. 

The winning ticket was sold at Landess Arco Service, which is located at 1575 Landess Avenue in Milpitas. The ticket successfully matched the numbers 24, 36, 21, 45, 42, missing only the Powerball number of 15.

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.

Since no one matched all six numbers in last night’s draw, the jackpot for Wednesday’s POWERBALL draw has soared to $400 million, the third largest POWERBALL jackpot of all time.

POWERBALL is a multistate game, played in California (and 42 other 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 p.m. to 7:05 p.m. the day of the draw. Tickets are $2 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s POWERBALL site for more information.
