Local : Lotto Prize Likely to Hit $40 Million

<i> From Times staff and wire service reports </i>

Nobody picked all six winning numbers in Wednesday night’s Lotto 6-49 game, and Saturday’s jackpot will grow to an estimated $40 million, California Lottery officials said today.

Five winning numbers plus the bonus paid $569,339 each to five players, while five numbers without the bonus were worth $3,849 to each of 381 players. The $26.7-million jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing will roll over to Saturday, growing with ticket sales to an estimated $40 million to become one of the largest jackpots in California Lottery history.
