Chula Vista Store Sold Ticket With 5 Of 6 Numbers In Powerball Drawing

A 7-Eleven store in Chula Vista sold one of 12 tickets in California that matched five of the six numbers in Wednesday night's multi- state Powerball drawing, lottery officials announced.

The holder of that ticket — purchased at 290 I St. — won't be in the same tax bracket as the lucky winner who bought the jackpot-winning ticket in Chino Hills, but hitting five of the six numbers is still worth a healthy chunk of change.

Officials are still determining the amount that those tickets are worth. The other 11 were sold in Cloverdale, Gardena, Irwindale, Nipton, Pacoima, Redlands, Santa Cruz, Santa Monica, Santa Rosa, Tustin and Vacaville.


State lottery officials said Wednesday night that a ticket matching all six numbers was sold at a 7-Eleven at 4092 Chino Hills Parkway in Chino Hills, in San Bernardino County.

That ticket is worth $1.586 billion, the largest lottery award in history. The winner, who has yet to be identified, will have to share the jackpot with at least two others. California lottery officials announced late Wednesday night that jackpots were also won in Florida and Tennessee.

The Powerball game is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were 4, 8, 19, 27, 34 and the Powerball number was 10.
