BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - No California ticket hit the jackpot, but two lucky tickets did match five numbers, missing only the Powerball number. Considering how much money was at stake we expected these winners to enjoy a plentiful payout. This morning’s numbers do not disappoint. Each of those 2nd place tickets is worth $2,309,228 to whoever has them!
Both winning tickets successfully matched the numbers 22, 10, 13, 14, 52, missing only the Powerball number 11. The winning tickets have something else in common. Both were sold at 7-Eleven convenience stores. One winning ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven, which is located at 1124 6th Street in Taft (Kern County). The other was sold at the 7-Eleven located at 2440 Almaden Expressway in San Jose (Santa Clara County).
There is still no word whether there are any jackpot winning tickets in other POWERBALL jurisdictions. At this moment, we cannot say if the game will roll.
