A least one San Diegan is a little richer today.
Five identical Mega Millions lottery tickets, now worth $204,482 each, were sold for Friday's drawing. Three of those five were sold in one place - the Qwik Korner Deli & Grocery in Solana Beach. Lottery officials could not say if the winning tickets were purchased by the same person.
Two other winning Mega Millions tickets were sold in California: one was bought in Garden Grove and another was purchased in the Sierra foothill town of La Grange.
All included the winning numbers 14, 20, 41, 47 and 53, but missed having the winning Mega number -- 40.
The jackpot for next Tuesday's game will be $266 million because no one in the nation picked the correct combination, the California Lottery said.
The Mega Millions lottery game is offered by 39 states.
