Lotto Lightning Strikes Twice at Santa Monica Blvd. Gas Station

A gas station sold two multimillion lottery tickets less than a year apart, the California Lottery said Sunday.

Saturday night's draw revealed a ticket sold at the Santa Monica Boulevard gas station was worth just under $2 million dollars, for matching five of six numbers, according to the lottery.

The $1,995,993 ticket dwarfs in comparison to another sold at the Century City 76 station, at 10389 Santa Monica Boulevard, in April. This article originally misstated its location.

That ticket was worth $30 million, lottery officials said.

No one has come forward to claim the recent ticket, but the lottery officials said the winner should sign the back in ink, keep it in a safe place and visit a lottery district office.

Because no ticket matched the Powerball number on Saturday, the jackpot rose to $208 million for Wednesday, Jan. 21.
