JULIAN, Calif. -- A store in Julian sold a MegaMillions ticket worth nearly $1.3 million, the California Lottery said.
The lottery office in Sacramento said someone had stepped up claiming to have the winning ticket, but that claim has yet to be verified.
The winning ticket was sold at Julian Market and Deli ahead of the Friday drawing. It matched five of the winning numbers -- but not the Mega number -- and is worth nearly $1.3 million.
"We've been here for 25 years and we've never had any jackpot over a million dollars, we've had a couple for a thousand or two but never got one for five out of six or six out of six, it's kind of exciting a million dollar winner," said Keith Soria who owns the store.
Friday's winning numbers were 1, 20, 30, 33, 42 and the Mega number 16.
No one managed to match all six of the winning numbers, and the next drawing on Tuesday is set to be worth $277 million.
