If you recently visited Morro Bay and didn’t buy a Mega Millions ticket, you should kick yourself. If you did visit the coastal community and did buy a ticket, you might be pinching yourself instead.

One ticket matched all six numbers in Friday night’s MEGA Millions draw, California Lottery officials said. The ticket is worth a whopping $133 million. The estimated cash option for the jackpot is $92.4 million

The lucky winner bought the ticket with the numbers 4, 10, 26, 32, 41 and Mega number 31 at Bottle Liquor on Main Street. The owner of the store will also benefit in the form of a $665,000 bonus for selling the ticket. The winner has exactly one year – 365 days – to claim the jackpot.

A ticket matching five numbers -- all except the Mega number was bought at Convenience Retailers in San Diego.
