The lucky ticket was sold at Vons Grocery at 2250 Otay Lakes Road in Chula Vista. The ticket successfully matched the numbers 2, 48, 3, 18 and 34, and missed only the Mega number of 36.
“We’d love for them (winner) to check their ticket and come forward,” Ryann Petit-Frere, digital media manager for the California Lottery, said.
Lottery winners need to sign the backs of their tickets and contact Lottery officials or visit their local district office. Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes.
