Riverside County MEGA Millions® Ticket Worth More Than $481,000!


SACRAMENTO – There is big Lottery news out of Riverside County this morning. A MEGA Millions ticket sold at a gas station in Norco matched five out of six numbers in last night’s draw and is now worth $481,220 to whoever has it.

Now the specifics – this ticket was sold at Norco Fueling, which is located at 2740 Hamner Avenue in Norco. It correctly matched the numbers 51, 32, 25, 50 and 35, missing only the Mega number of 46.

No ticket matched all six numbers last night, so we’re going to see another jump in the jackpot prize amount for Friday’s MEGA Millions draw. The amount is now an estimated $19 million!

The California Lottery reminds 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.

MEGA Millions is a multistate game, played in California and 44 other jurisdictions (42 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Players pick five numbers from 1 to 56 plus a Mega number from 1 to 46. Draw times are Tuesdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. PST. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s MEGA Millions site for more information.
