Lottery players, check your tickets if you purchased one recently in San Jose.
The California Lottery on Wednesday said that a lucky player recently went to the 7-Eleven located at 1639 Alum Rock Ave. and picked up a Mega Millions ticket that is now worth about $1.4 million.
The winning ticket matched five out of the six winning numbers (1, 4, 23, 40, 45) but missed out on the Mega number of 11, according to the California Lottery.
The winner cannot collect their winnings until they submit a winner’s claim form and have their ticket verified by lottery officials.
The lucky 7-Eleven store will cash in on $7,395 just for having sold the ticket, the lottery said.
