$460,000 Fantasy 5 Ticket Sold at San Diego County Fair Still Unclaimed


SACRAMENTO – A winning Fantasy 5 ticket that was purchased at the San Diego County Fair has still not been claimed, and it’s been two months. The ticket – which matched all five numbers in the Fantasy 5 draw on June 17 – is worth $461,407.

The Fair ended on July 4. The unknown Fantasy 5 winner purchased their ticket from the Lottery retailer working the Fair – La Jolla Country Market, which is located at 1030 Torrey Pines Road in La Jolla. The winning numbers on the ticket are 28, 24, 33, 39 and 18.

The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their tickets, 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.

Fantasy 5 offers some of the best odds of any California Lottery game. A player wins the Fantasy 5 jackpot simply by matching five numbers out of a field of 39. Winning numbers are drawn every day. The top prize starts at $50,000 and increases daily until it is hit. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers.

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 94 cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. Since 2000, Lottery players have contributed $1 billion to public schools each year, and, since we began in 1985, Lottery players have contributed a total of more than $24 billion to education.
