Four Winning MEGA Millions® Tickets Worth $167K Each
SACRAMENTO – Four lucky California Lottery players who bought their tickets in Southern California are richer today. Their tickets matched five of six numbers in last night’s MEGA Millions draw, making their prize $167,371 each.
The winning numbers on the ticket were 50, 41, 37, 23, 55 and the Mega number – the only number the ticket did not match – was 6. No one matched all six numbers in last night’s draw, which means Tuesday night’s jackpot will be worth an astounding $224 million.
The tickets were purchased at the following retail locations:
T & G Liquor, 18502 South Normandie Avenue, Gardena
Chevron, 267 South Indian Hill, Claremont
Vons Grocery, 505 Telegraph Canyon Road, Chula Vista
Jefferson Chevron & Deli, 27570 Jefferson Avenue, Temecula
The California Lottery reminds each winner to sign the back of their ticket, keep the ticket 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.
