Someone just scored themselves a bit of relief. That’s because they purchased a lucky Powerball ticket that matched five of six numbers in last night’s draw to win $771,194. Just think of what you could do with that kind of cash!
We will not know who this winner is until he/she claims their prize, but we can tell you what to look for. This winning ticket was sold at Commerce Chevron, which is located at 6150 East Telegraph Road in the City of Commerce (Los Angeles County). It matched the numbers 62-52-13-12-44, missing only the Powerball number 6
A ticket sold in Florida did hit the jackpot last night to score the top prize of $291.4 million. This means the Powerball jackpot resets to its starting point of $40 million for Saturday’s drawing. There’s still plenty you could do with that!
The California Lottery urges last night’s winner to sign the back of their ticket in ink, keep it in a safe place and visit any of the nine Lottery District Offices as soon as possible. The winner has 180 days from the date of their draw to claim their prize.
