$4mil Mega Millions ticket sold in Fresno

Did you buy a Mega Millions lottery ticket in Fresno in the last few days? If so, you’ll want to check your ticket to see if you are a winner.

The California Lottery reported Saturday morning that a lucky ticket holder woke up with a windfall of money, and maybe a few million reasons to start their retirement early.

The ticket, worth over $4.2 million dollars, was sold at a Vons grocery store on Cedar Avenue in northeast Fresno. The ticket matched 5 out of 6 numbers, missing the jackpot, but still earning some life-changing money.

There was no jackpot winner in California for this draw, but there are over 2.2 million winning tickets.

One ticket nationally, sold in Illinois, captured eye-popping $1.28 billion jackpot on Friday evening.
