La Jolla Retailer Sells MEGA Millions Ticket Worth More Than $184,000


SACRAMENTO – A Lottery player in La Jolla has 184,000 more reasons to be thankful today.  There was one ticket sold in La Jolla for last night’s MEGA Millions draw that is worth $184,845.

The retailer who sold the winning ticket is Dick’s Liquor, which is located at 737 Pearl Street in La Jolla (San Diego County). 

The ticket successfully matched the numbers 47, 37, 8, 44 and 48, missing only the Mega number of 27. And since no one hit last night’s jackpot, Tuesday night’s MEGA Millions jackpot will be $49 million. The cash value is an estimated $37.3 million.

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.

MEGA Millions is a multistate game, played in California and 43 other jurisdictions (41 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). 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. 

And remember, checking the daily draw results is easier than ever. All past and current Lottery draw results can be obtained for FREE by dialing 1-800-LOTTERY and selecting option 2, or via our website at

More than 94 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.
