Two SoCal Players Win Big Last Night!
San Diego County Ticket is Worth Nearly $1 Million
SACRAMENTO – Two lucky Lottery players came up big last night, winning prizes totaling well over $1 million. A POWERBALL® ticket sold in La Mesa successfully matched five of the six numbers to win $943,604. The other lucky ticket, which was sold in Glendale, successfully matched all five Fantasy 5 numbers to take home the top prize of $297,983.
The POWERBALL ticket was purchased at Excalibur Liquor, which is located at 5575 Baltimore Drive in La Mesa. The Fantasy 5 ticket was purchased at Big Jim’s Donuts, which is located at 1141 East Broadway in Glendale.
No one in POWERBALL’s 44 jurisdictions won the jackpot last night, meaning the POWERBALL jackpot now grows to an estimated $127 million for Saturday night’s drawing.
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.
