SAN JOSE (KRON) – While the jackpot is still up for grabs, a Bay Area winner received the second-biggest prize after they selected the first five numbers but missed the powerball in the latest Powerball drawing.
The 5/5 ticket was sold at Paul’s Market at 412 E Empire St in San Jose.
Another 5/5 ticket was sold in San Diego.
The two top earners are estimated to receive over $2.7 million each. Not a bad consolation.
The next big draw is set to happen this Friday were the Mega Millions drawing is at $750 million.
The next Powerball and Super Lotto drawings are this Saturday and sit at $640 million and $12 million respectively.
