$1.1 million Match 5 CA winner
The last drawing which occurred on Tuesday, Aug. 3, had winning numbers of 1 – 9 – 17 – 27 – 34 with a gold Mega Ball of 24. Moreover, the Megaplier was 2X. One big winner resulted from the last drawing from Pacoima, CA.
The lucky ticket matched all five white balls, known as a Match 5 winner, and the prize was worth $1.1 million. Note that in most jurisdictions that offer Mega Millions, a Match 5 ticket is typically worth $1 million. However, in the state of California, lottery prizes are awarded on a pari-mutuel basis. Thus, this means that the amount of the win is determined by how many tickets were sold plus how many other winners there are.
Finally, the winner was sold at Cortesia Market, located on 11552 Glenoaks Blvd. in Pacoima. The retailer receives a $5,500 bonus for selling the ticket.
