$8 Million La Puente SuperLotto Plus® Winner Claims His New Year’s Riches!
SACRAMENTO – Nam Park has eight million reasons to celebrate 2014. That’s because he had the first California Lottery multi-million dollar winning ticket of the year. Park matched all six winning numbers in the $8 million SuperLotto Plus draw on January 1. Park says he plans to help out his family and invest his winnings.
The $8 million winning SuperLotto Plus ticket was purchased at Liquor Deli, which is located at 595 South Azusa Avenue in La Puente (Los Angeles County). That ticket matched all six winning numbers – 9, 19, 3, 42, 24 and the Mega number 16. That lucky retailer will receive a bonus of one half percent or $40,000 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.
