2 California Tickets Each Worth $264K Picked In Mega Millions Draw
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — California Lottery officials announced Saturday that two tickets sold in California in last night’s Mega Millions draw are worth $264,531 each.
No ticket nationwide matched all six numbers so the jackpot for Tuesday’s draw climbs to $42 million. The jackpot in Friday’s draw was an estimated $34 million.
The two big California winners matched five of the winning numbers but failed to match the Mega number of 21. The five winning numbers were 25, 31, 36, 46 and 53.
One of the two winning 5/5 tickets was sold in Walnut at Daily Donuts (18766 Amar Road.) The other winning 5/5 ticket was sold at Adobe Liquors in San Pablo (13800 San Pablo Avenue.)
