United Press International

A Lotto 6/49 ticket sold in Irvine is worth more than $14 million, but the holder will have to wait until Monday to get the ticket verified.

California Lottery spokesman John Schade said Thursday the winning ticket is worth a 20-year annuity worth $14,332,143. The lottery’s district offices are closed for the holiday weekend and will not reopen until Monday.

There were 17 “runner up” tickets with five of the six numbers plus the bonus number, each worth $120,871, Schade said. Also, 502 tickets had five numbers for a $2,108 prize and nearly 26,000 tickets with four numbers were worth $37 apiece.

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were 11, 4, 27, 39, 31 and 7 with the bonus number 21.


Sales for the game were $19.2 million, of which $6.5 million is earmarked for public schools.

The jackpot for Saturday night’s drawing will be at least $6 million, Schade said.
