The single winning ticket for the $46 million jackpot was purchased at ARCO #9636 at 2354 East Palmdale Boulevard in Palmdale, CA, it is not yet known if that ticket is owned by a single winner or a group.

Lottery officials are asking for your help to find California's latest multi-millionaire! Given the numbers were drawn on Thanksgiving weekend, the winner could be a visitor who was there to spend some time with their family, or someone merely passing through the area.

The California Lottery also wants to remind players to sign the back of their tickets and if players find they are a winner, please put the ticket in a safe place and contact Lottery officials or visit the local Lottery District Office immediately. Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim their prize.
