Winner Claims $11 Million SuperLotto Plus® Ticket Sold in San Diego!


SACRAMENTO – It has been two long months, but a winner has finally come forward to claim a SuperLotto Plus ticket sold in San Diego worth $11 million! No matter how you look at it, this win is a thing of beauty.

Check out the image we have posted below.  That is the actual ticket that Daniel Lindsey purchased for the draw on August 10, 2013. As you can see, it’s been folded and has a little dust smudge on it, but who cares! The win still counts. Lindsey purchased five plays and it was on that fifth and final play (line “E”) that he scored that massive payout. His ticket successfully matched the numbers 44, 46, 7, 5, 14 and Mega 27. Lindsey’s ticket was a Quick Pick®, a simple choice that catapulted him to millionaire status. Like other jackpot winners, he can choose annual payments, or the cash value of the prize, which in this case is estimated at $6.3 million.

Lindsey bought his ticket at Golden Hill Liquor, which is located at 2795 B Street in San Diego. That lucky retailer will receive a bonus of one half percent or $55,000 for selling the winning ticket.

Our next SuperLotto Plus drawing is Saturday evening. The jackpot amount is now at $20 million. 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.

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. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 21,000 California Lottery retailers. Please visit the California Lottery’s SuperLotto Plus site for more information.

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 96 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.
