Fremont Couple Wins $52 Million Lottery

According to Lottery officials, Marita and Bladimir Agnite of Fremont said they didn’t know that they had hit the jackpot until a relative called Bladimir to tell him that they thought they had seen his picture on the news. Bladmir had recently been laid off at his printing company, and Marita works as a nursing assistant. Cheryl Hurd reports.

At 8:00 p.m. tonight, someone could be the lucky winner of the MEGA Millions jackpot worth $105 million.

That's the jackpot for Friday night’s draw.

For those interested in the amount of cash available, that amount is up to $81 million lottery officials said.

No one held the winning ticket in Wednesday’s night’s drawing.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot to date was the $656 million won March 30 that offered the cash option of $474 million. Three tickets were sold splitting the record jackpot.

In that drawing, two locals held tickets with five of six winning numbers each worth an estimated $277,000.

Just a month ago, a Lemon Grove man claimed a $587,000 lottery jackpot when his ticket matched five numbers.

Tickets are sold in California and 43 other jurisdictions (including the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands).

To play, you pick five numbers from 1 to 56 plus a Mega number from 1 to 46. California Lottery’s MEGA Millions site offers more information on game rules.

Draw times are Tuesdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. PST.
