South El Monte Ticket Hits $26 Million SuperLotto Plus® Jackpot


SACRAMENTO – We’re not sure what’s hotter, this August weather or California Lottery players. One day after somebody won $1.1 million by matching five of six Mega Millions® numbers, someone else matched all six SuperLotto Plus numbers to win the $26 million jackpot!

Last night’s winning numbers were 16, 22, 27, 6, 32 and the Mega number 3. The estimated cash option amount for this jackpot is $15.7 million before federal taxes.

The winning ticket was purchased at Sam’s Liquor, which is located at 9660 East Garvey Avenue in South El Monte (Los Angeles County). The lucky retailer will receive a bonus check of $130,000 just for selling the winning ticket!

The Lottery reminds winners to sign the back of your ticket in ink, put it in a safe place and contact Lottery officials or visit your local Lottery District Office as soon as possible. Jackpot winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim the jackpot prize.
SuperLotto Plus is California’s own in-state jackpot game. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 47 plus a Mega number from 1 to 27. The draw takes place at Lottery Headquarters in Sacramento Wednesdays and Saturdays right after draw entry closes at 7:45 p.m. PST.
