A Valencia store sold a winning lottery ticket valued at $2.39 million this past weekend.
The CoGo on Route 8 sold the Match 6 ticket, which won in the Saturday drawing.
“We were alerted this morning and are excited for the winner,” said Colin Dornish, senior director of operations at Coen Markets. “Our whole team at the Valencia location wants to say congratulations to the winner.”
The game is played when customers buy a ticket for $2 and choose six numbers from 1 to 49, or have numbers randomly selected by computer.
The computer then randomly selects an additional two sets of six numbers for three lines of six numbers each or 18 numbers total.
The winning ticket correctly matched all six winning numbers, 01-06-19-25-34-42, to win the jackpot prize.
