Lucky Powerball® Ticket Creates Latest Millionaire in San Bernardino County
SACRAMENTO – Who says you can’t win the lottery living out in the Mojave Desert!? Today is an extra nice Sunday for whoever owns the Powerball ticket that matched five of six numbers during last night’s draw. That’s because that lucky piece of orange paper is now worth $1,120,480!
The winning numbers are 14-26-45-54 and 55. Had the ticket matched the Powerball number 20, the owner would be $94 million richer. Oh well, they’re still a millionaire and if you ask just about anyone, that’s certainly nothing to complain about!
The winning ticket was purchased at K&G Liquor, which is located at 11146 Hesperia Road in Hesperia. By the way, the jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball draw has ballooned to $110 million.
The California Lottery reminds the winner from last night’s draw to sign the back of their ticket, keep it in a safe place and visit any of the nine Lottery District Offices as soon as possible.
