Nipton Daily Derby Ticket Worth More Than $300,000


SACRAMENTO – One lucky California Lottery player in Nipton saw their horse come in last night, and as a result, they’re more than $300,000 richer today. That’s because they played Daily Derby and their ticket matched all three winning horses and the final race time, earning them a $300,768 prize.

The winning ticket was sold at Primm Valley Lotto, which is located at I 15 and Stateline Nevada in Nipton. The winning horses were: 1st place – 4 – Big Ben; 2nd place – 12 – Lucky Charms; and 3rd place – 11 – Money Bags. The winning race time was 1:47.59.

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 approximately 6:35 p.m., at which time you can get winning information from your retailer’s terminal, or you can visit the Lottery’s website at 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.

The California Lottery is celebrating 25 years of enhancing education and supporting local communities. More than 94 cents of every dollar spent by our players goes to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail commissions. Since 2000, Lottery players have contributed $1 billion to public schools each year, and, since we began in 1985, Lottery players have contributed more than $22 billion to education.
