Someone who recently shopped at a liquor store in Chula Vista is very lucky: that person bought a Mega Millions lottery ticket that’s now worth more than $3 million.
According to California Lottery officials, the prize-winning ticket was sold at Southbay Liquor located at 1355 Broadway #L & M.
In a May 19 drawing, the ticket matched five out of six winning numbers – 1-4-5-24-30, missing only the Mega Number, 1.
With that hot streak, the ticket won a whopping $3,116,434. Had the ticket matched all six numbers in the drawing, it would’ve won the $43 million jackpot.
California Lottery Officials said the liquor store that sold the ticket will also cash in, winning a retail bonus of one-half of 1 percent of the prize, or about $15,582.
The winner has yet to come forward. Per lottery rules, Mega Millions winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize.
Mega Millions draws take place every Tuesday and Friday at 8 p.m. PT.
