Powerball® Ticket Sold in Lawndale Worth Nearly $800k


Wednesday’s Powerball Jackpot Climbs to $60 Million

SACRAMENTO – For the second night in a row, a lottery ticket sold in Southern California was just one number away from hitting a multi-million dollar jackpot. This time it was a Powerball ticket sold in Lawndale that narrowly missed hitting the $50 million jackpot. The lucky ticket successfully matched five of six numbers and is worth $782,673! 

The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store located at 4401 Redondo Beach in Lawndale (Los Angeles County). It successfully matched the numbers 3, 12, 27, 38 and 2, missing only the Powerball number of 17.

The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their tickets, keep tickets in a safe place and visit their local Lottery District Office as soon as possible.

Powerball is a multistate game played in California (and 42 other states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). 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 on how to play.

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 95 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. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
