Daily Derby® Ticket Sold in Culver City Worth More Than $350,000
SACRAMENTO – There may not have been a Triple Crown winner in horse racing this year, but one lucky California Lottery player who purchased their Daily Derby ticket in Culver City (Los Angeles County) is excited nonetheless. That’s because their ticket matched all three winning horses and the final race time, earning them a $359,960 prize.
The winning ticket was sold at Albert Liquors, which is located at 5565 Sepulveda Boulevard in Culver City. The winning horses were: 1st place – 10 – Solid Gold; 2nd place – 5 – California Classic; and 3rd place – 7 – Eureka. The winning race time was a blistering 1:45.85.
Daily Derby combines the fun and excitement of horse racing with several ways to win, including the chance to win twice on a single ticket. This unique game was the first horse racing-themed game in the U.S. played on regular Lottery terminals. The game can be played at any of the Lottery’s 21,000 retailers by selecting three horses from a field of 12; one to finish 1st, one to finish 2nd, one to finish 3rd; and a race time.
Lottery players can pick their horses before 6:30 p.m. for the current day’s draw. The Daily Derby draw is held at after 6:30 p.m., at which time you can get winning information from your retailer’s terminal, or you can visit the Lottery’s website at www.calottery.com/winningnumbers/ for the results.
The California Lottery wants to remind 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.
