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.

"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.". Does that answer your question? "Multi-state".

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.
