Two Northern California players correctly picked all six winning numbers in Saturday's Lotto 6/49 game and will split the $11.8-million jackpot, a California Lottery spokesman said Sunday.
The tickets, each worth $5.9 million, were purchased in Freedom, a Santa Cruz County community north of Watsonville, and in San Jose, spokesman John Schade said.
Names of lotto winners are not known until they turn in their tickets to collect their prizes. The winning lotto numbers were: 4, 28, 18, 1, 13, 27 and the bonus number 20.
The big prizes will be paid out in 20 annual increments of about $236,000.
Four players, including one from Santa Ana, selected five correct numbers plus the bonus number and will collect $304,890 each.
