According to the California Lottery, a total of four Powerball tickets matching five of the six numbers were sold in the state in Saturday's $400 million draw, one each in Auburn, north of Sacramento in Placer County; Los Banos, east of Gilroy in Merced County; Nipomo on the Central California coast; and Tujunga in Southern California.
Each is worth $554,800 after matching the first five numbers drawn Saturday.
The numbers in Saturday's Powerball draw were: 27-29-45-55-58 and the Powerball number 2.
