A woman won California's highest lottery jackpot with a ticket from a Woodland Hills Chevron.
On Jan. 28, Kristine Wellenstein won the $426 million Mega Millions jackpot with the only ticket in the country to match all six numbers.
Wellenstein told lottery officials, "I was overwhelmed with emotions, but largely gratitude."
“I want to give back and support local and worldwide initiatives,” she stated. The real impact of my life's labour begins now.
Increased jackpots lead to higher sales, which means more money for public education, which we support, said California State Lottery Director Alva V. Johnson.
Wellenstein has chosen to receive her winnings in a lump payment.
The Chevron station located at 6061 Topanga Canyon Boulevard, where she purchased the winning Mega Millions ticket, receives a $1 million bonus for selling the winning ticket.
The Mega Millions drawings occur on Tuesdays and Fridays at 8 p.m. Each ticket costs $2, and the likelihood of winning the jackpot is 1 in 302,575,350
