Winning MEGA Millions® Ticket Sold in Lincoln Worth $830K


SACRAMENTO – A lucky California Lottery player who bought a MEGA Millions ticket in Lincoln has received quite a return on their investment. Their ticket matched five of six numbers in last night’s draw, earning them a tidy $830,872.

The winning ticket was purchased at Tobacco Shop, which is located at 155 Joiner Parkway #200. The winning numbers on the ticket were 30, 23, 15, 20, 26 and the Mega number – the only number the ticket did not match – was 17. No one matched all six numbers in last night’s draw, which means Tuesday night’s jackpot will be worth an estimated $64 million.

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.

MEGA Millions is a multi-state game, played in California and 39 other states. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 56 plus a Mega number from 1 to 46. Draw times are Tuesdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. PST. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s MEGA Millions site for more information.
