Four Winning Tickets to Split $2.2 Million Mega Millions® Prize!


SACRAMENTO –  The jackpot-winning ticket for Friday’s Mega Millions draw may not have been sold in California, but four tickets did match five numbers and will split the $2,280,492 prize. That means each ticket is worth $570,123 (before federal taxes)! 

Here’s a look at where each ticket was sold: 

  • Primm Valley Lotto, located at I-15 and Stateline in Nipton (San Bernardino County).
  • Chevron in Riverside, located at 2200 Alessandro Boulevard.
  • 76 gas station in Los Angeles, located at 11305 Santa Monica Boulevard.
  • 76 gas station in Antioch, located at 4649 Golf Course Road.

Each ticket matched the numbers 10, 4, 12, 18, and 5, missing only the Mega number 21. 

We won’t know who any of these winners are until they claim their prizes, which they can do during normal business hours at any of our nine California Lottery District Offices

Winners are strongly encouraged to sign the back of their tickets in ink, keep them in a safe place where they’ll remember and familiarize themselves with the Lottery’s Winners Handbook, which can be found here. And remember, you must have your original ticket when claiming any Mega Millions prize, so be sure you don’t forget and leave it at the store! 

Since the Mega Millions jackpot was hit in Ohio on Friday, Tuesday’s jackpot has reset and will be worth at least an estimated $40 million. 

Mega Millions is played in 44 states (plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Draw times are Tuesdays and Fridays at 8 p.m. PT. The draw closes at 7:45 p.m., so players must buy their tickets by then for that draw. Ticket sales resume (for the next draw) at 7:50 p.m. Tickets are $2 and can be purchased from any of the more than 22,000 California Lottery retailers or one of the more than 4,000 Lottery Lucky Retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s Mega Millions site for more information on how to play.

Mega Millions is a part of the Lottery’s continued effort to create more winners and more importantly, earn more money for California public schools!

The California Lottery is a $6 billion enterprise based in Sacramento. It is one of the few state agencies that is a revenue generator, not accepting taxpayer dollars from the State’s General Fund. Its mission is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. In FY 2016-17, the Lottery created 83 new millionaires. Ninety-five 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.
