Paramount MEGA Millions® Ticket Wins $300k Prize
SACRAMENTO – California Lottery officials are on the lookout for the owner – or owners – of a MEGA Millions ticket sold in Paramount for last night’s draw that is worth $312,388.
The ticket was sold at Star Lite Liquor located at 8414 Alondra Boulevard. The ticket successfully matched five of six numbers – 39, 16, 49, 19, 44, and missed only the Mega number of 26. No one matched all six numbers, so Tuesday’s jackpot will be $24 million.
The California Lottery reminds each winner to sign the back of their ticket, keep the ticket 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.
