First Million Dollar POWERBALL® Ticket Sold in Buena Park


SACRAMENTO – Buena Park can boast that it is the first California city to sell a POWERBALL ticket worth more than a million dollars! One lucky Lottery player in the area matched five out of six numbers in last night’s POWERBALL draw and their ticket is worth $1,306,323.
The winning ticket was sold at 17 Food Store, which is located at 6522 Stanton Avenue #A in Buena Park. The ticket successfully matched the numbers 10-57-31-12-56, missing only the POWERBALL number of 33.
No one matched all six numbers in last night’s draw, so Wednesday’s POWERBALL jackpot is an estimated $80 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). Players pick five numbers from 1 to 59 plus a Powerball number from 1 to 35. Draw times are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:59 p.m. PST. Tickets sales are suspended from 7:00 PM to 7:05 PM 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.  

And remember, checking the daily draw results is easier than ever. All past and current Lottery draw results can be obtained for FREE by dialing 1-800-LOTTERY and selecting option 2, or via our website at

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 96 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.
