One Lucky POWERBALL® Player On The Road To Vegas Wins $1 Million!


SACRAMENTO – The saying goes “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." Good thing that doesn’t include the points in between, because someone likely headed to Las Vegas or on their way home is now $1 million richer thanks to a lucky POWERBALL ticket purchased on the California-Nevada border.

That lucky ticket matched the numbers 47, 53, 14, 52 and 54, but missed the Powerball number 5. The winning ticket, which is worth $1,035,737, was purchased at The Primm Valley Lotto Store located just off of Interstate 15 on the California side of the California-Nevada border.

No one across the nation won the POWERBALL jackpot last night so Wednesday’s jackpot now grows to $70 Million.

The California Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of their tickets, keep tickets in a safe place and 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 42 other states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Draw times are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 7:59 p.m. PST. Tickets sales are suspended from 7:00 p.m. to 7:05 p.m. 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 on how to play.

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.
