Mega Millions runner-up lottery ticket sold in Murrieta

RIVERSIDE – One ticket with all six numbers in the multi-state Mega Millions draw was sold in upstate New York, but a runner-up ticket worth $287,323 was sold in Murrieta.

The $319 million ticket was sold in Albany, N.Y., California Lottery officials announced. It was the only one that bore all six numbers drawn Friday: 22, 24, 31, 52, 54 and Mega number 4.

Five consolation prizes for tickets that had the five winners but missed the Mega ticket are going to people who bought their tickets in California, state lottery officials said. One of the $287,323 tickets was sold by the Shell gas station at 40452 Murrieta Hot Springs Road in Murrieta.

Two of those tickets were sold by 7-Eleven stores in the Los Angeles County cities of Inglewood and Redondo Beach. Other consolation winners were sold at a convenience store in the Central California city of Clovis and at a store just inside the California line on Interstate 80 west of Reno.

The estimated $319 million jackpot was the sixth-largest in the history of the game, which is now played in 41 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

    Apparently you are not aware that Megamillion lottery does not involve California State only. Now if it was California Lotto then that is a different story.
