California Powerball Winners Split $1,003,786
California lottery winners are on a roll again, this time with the Powerball. This is a new game for California. They only started playing Powerball on April 8, 2013, and already millions of dollars have been won.
According to California Lottery officials, two (2) Powerball winners will be splitting $1,003,786. The winning tickets were purchased at Rotten Robbie, which is located at 2725 South Main Street in Lakeport (Lake County). The other ticket was sold at the Arco located at 3949 Dennison Street in Los Angeles. Both winners matched five out of six white Powerball winning numbers, but not the red Powerball for the April 20 drawing.
Only one winning ticket has been claimed so far. Powerball winner Concepcion Rosales of Los Angeles, walked into the California Lottery’s Santa Fe Springs District Office on Monday morning to get her hefty check of $501,893. Rosales told officials she’s thanking God for her financial windfall.
If you have the other winning California Powerball ticket, sign the back immediately, put it in a safe place, and bring it to your local California Lottery headquarters ASAP. Lottery winners only have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes, otherwise the prize money will be forfeited. Don’t miss out on your fortune!
