$64 Million SuperLotto Plus®Ticket Sold in Orange County Finally Claimed More Than Two Months Later!
SACRAMENTO – While all eyes were on the HUGE $430 million Powerball jackpot during the August 16 draw, one lucky California Lottery player flew under the radar and hit the amazing $64 million SuperLotto Plus jackpot!
Lisa Hoang recently paid a visit to our Santa Ana District Office to claim her multimillion-dollar prize. A long-time California Lottery player, Hoang told us she plays SuperLotto Plus weekly—that is as long as she can afford it! Hoang purchased $2 worth of Quick Pick® tickets at Garden Grove 76, which is located at 13960 Harbor Boulevard in Garden Grove (Orange County). The ticket matched the winning numbers 43-34-47-31-23 and the Mega number 19. The lucky retailer will receive a bonus check of $320,000 just for selling the winning ticket! (The retailer bonus is not subtracted from the winner’s jackpot prize.)
California’s newest multimillionaire told us she will use her winnings to first pay off some debt. After that, she wants to just put the rest of it in the bank and worry about everything else later.
This was the first time the SuperLotto Plus jackpot had been hit since the Donaldson family in Herperia (San Bernardino County) took home the winning $72 million jackpot back on January 25 of this year.
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 on Wednesdays and Saturdays, right after draw entry closes at 7:45 p.m. PST. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 22,000 California Lottery retailers or one of the more than 4,000 Lottery Lucky Retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s SuperLotto Plus site for more information.
SuperLotto Plus is a part of the Lottery’s continued effort to create more winners, and more importantly, earn more money for California public schools!
The California Lottery is a $6 billion enterprise based in Sacramento. It is one of the few state agencies that is a revenue generator, not accepting taxpayer dollars from the State’s General Fund. Its mission is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. In FY 2016-17, the Lottery created 83 new millionaires. Ninety-five cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
