Hayward Powerball Player Wins $2 Million

View Comments ()



    The Bay Area's lucky streak is alive and well. A lottery ticket worth millions of dollars was sold in Hayward.

    No one matched all six of the numbers in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, but someone bought a ticket at the 7-Eleven on Harder Road that matched five of the numbers (34, 23, 43, 19 and 2), minus the Powerball (14). That ticket is worth more than $2 million.

    The store owner will receive a bonus of nearly $11,000 for selling the winning ticket.

    Two days ago, someone matched five of the numbers in the Mega Millions drawing. The $1.9 million ticket was purchased at Huntington Liquor Store in San Bruno.

    Back in February, a Powerball player in Milpitas won a $425 million jackpot. That winner has not yet come forward.
