Three California POWERBALL® Tickets Split More Than $1.7 Million


POWERBALL Jackpot Climbs to $350 Million!

SACRAMENTO – Even though no one matched all six numbers in last night’s $270 million POWERBALL jackpot draw, three lucky California players did match five out of six numbers and will split a prize worth $1,721,082, making each ticket worth $573,694. Even better news – because no one matched all six numbers last night that means Wednesday night’s POWERBALL jackpot has rolled to an incredible $350 million!
The first of the winning tickets was sold at West Payran Shell, which is located at 900 Petaluma Boulevard North in Petaluma (Sonoma County). The second ticket was sold at Coach Lane Chevron, which is located at 3381 Coach Lane in Cameron Park (El Dorado County). The third big winner was sold at Foothill 76, which is located at 3275 East Foothill Boulevard in Pasadena (Los Angeles County). All three tickets successfully matched the numbers 6, 23, 19, 43, and 13, missing only the Powerball number of 16.
The estimated cash value for Wednesday night’s draw is a staggering $222.8 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.

POWERBALL is a multistate game, played in California and 44 other jurisdictions (42 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands).
