A very lucky Mega Millions ticket worth more than $800,000 was recently sold at a gas station mini-mart in Poway, lottery officials announced Wednesday.
The ticket was purchased at the Arco AM/PM located at 12805 Poway Rd. The slip matched five of the six winning numbers in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing – 1, 29, 33, 34 and 55 – missing only the Mega Number, 6.
California Lottery officials say the ticket is worth a cool $802,153. The winner has yet to come forward, but per lottery rules, the winner has 180 days from the date of the draw to claim the prize.
No one matched all six numbers in the Mega Millions drawing – and the grand prize was worth $135 million. That means the jackpot rolls to $144 million for the next drawing set for Friday at 8 p.m. PT.
