$ 426 million lottery jackpot drops
One ticket sold in Southern California matched all six mega million lottery numbers and was lucky enough to win the $ 426 million jackpot prize.
The numbers drawn Friday night were 3, 16, 25, 44 and 55. The California State Lottery reported that Mega Ball was 13.
The winning ticket was sold at the Chevron Gas Station in the Woodland Hills section of Los Angeles.
The winner has not yet been announced. Lottery officials said the ticket holder has one year to apply. You still have the option of accepting a lump sum payment of approximately $ 293 million (before federal taxes) or graduation fees in 29 years.
“It’s always exciting when a winning ticket comes out with such a big jackpot in California,” said Alva V., director of the California State Lottery. Johnson said. “California public schools are also big winners. From the beginning, the lottery was about raising money for education, which makes us very proud.
Overall $ 421 million was advertised, but sales soared, bringing the total to $ 426 million.
