Los Angeles County Doubles its MEGA Millions® Luck
SACRAMENTO – Wow! There is lots of money to be had in Los Angeles County this morning. Two big winners struck it rich in last night’s MEGA Millions draw to the tune of $269,746 each.
One lucky ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven at 6915 North Rosemead in San Gabriel. The other was purchased at Leonard’s Liquor, which is located at 630 North Sepulveda Boulevard in El Segundo.
So, find those tickets to see if you hit these numbers. The tickets successfully matched the numbers 9, 52, 13, 22, 38, missing only the Mega number of 44. Even if you didn’t win, there’s more good news. Since no one hit last night’s jackpot, Friday night’s MEGA Millions jackpot will be $41 million. The cash value is an estimated $31.4 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.
