California Mega Millions Hits Huge Lottery Prize

One lucky lottery winner from Seeley, California, recently matched five out of six white Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the gold Mega Ball for the second-tier prize of $205,688. The California Mega Millions winner purchased the ticket at Seeley Market, 1805 West Evan Hewes in Seeley, California (Imperial County), for the April 12 drawing.

The standard prize amount for five numbers is $250,000, but in California, Mega Millions prize amounts are pari-mutuel, and may vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners. Unfortunately, this winner will only get $205,688. California Lottery officials strongly encourage Mega Millions winners to sign the back of their tickets, keep them in a safe place, and contact lottery officials or visit their local Lottery District Office ASAP. Also, lottery tickets have an expiration date. Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim their prizes, so don’t delay!
