Winning Powerball Lottery Ticket Sold At Lake Elsinore Circle K

The ticket was the biggest winner in the state.

A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, for Wednesday night's multi-state Powerball lottery drawing was sold at a Circle K store in Lake Elsinore and is worth $347,092.

The winning ticket was sold at the Circle K located at 16331 Lakeshore Dr., according to lottery officials.

The ticket was the biggest winner in the state.

Two other tickets, one each sold in Indiana and New York, also had five numbers, but missed the Powerball number, and are each worth $1 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.

There were no tickets sold with all six numbers and the estimated jackpot for Saturday's drawing is expected to grow to $152 million.

The numbers drawn tonight were 1, 2, 7, 9, 55 and the Mega number was 29. The estimated jackpot was $131 million.

The drawing was the eighth since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in 175,223,510, according to the Powerball website. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 31.85.

The Powerball game is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Lake Elsinore Resident is a moron and a hater, brags about being a Republican (that's the moronic part.)

Lake Elsinore Resident's asinine comment can easily be made into a positive. How you might ask? Pay close attention for I shall expound! If in fact the Lottery winner were a "meth head", for a time the money would keep him/her out of your home @3am; uninvited and seeking financing for the next fix with the sale of goods stolen from you. It would also allow the police additional time to buttress the charges and incarcerate this person before they do additional harm. Whatever moneys remain can be used to provide for any children involved. (I began this post with tongue firmly in cheek. But as I formulated my thoughts, Eureka, the idea began to take on a logic of its own....Damn! I may be onto something!!!) Its a win win for all concerned: for a time the doper lives the (super) high life, suspends his/her criminal life, gets arrested, leaves remaining lottery winnings to the scattered children they may have spawned, simultaneously taking them off public assistance. Alas, were it only this simple! Congratulations to the Lake Elsinore winner...wishing you many years of happy and prosperous living.
