Carson widow wins $91 million SuperLotto Plus jackpot

California LotteryCalifornia Lottery: Carson widow wins $91 million SuperLotto Plus jackpot

Patricia Frierson went to her factory job after winning the $91 million California Lottery jackpot but she went home in a limousine.


Frierson had the sole winning ticket for Saturday night's SuperLotto Plus game. She bought it on Saturday afternoon at a liquor store down the block from an Econolodge motel, where she has lived for three years because she no longer could afford her town home.


She returned to Village Liquors on Sunday, clutching her winning ticket and hugging customers and employees.


"I'm going to faint," she exclaimed when a computer verified her numbers. "I've been playing these numbers for years," she told KCAL-TV.


Frierson said the numbers were dates important to her family, including the birthday of her daughter.


"Should I go to work today?" she asked laughing store employees.


Frierson did show up for her afternoon shift but quickly left in a limousine, KABC-TV reported. She said she planned to take a week's vacation.


Village Liquors manager John Kim said Frierson was a regular customer who bought a lottery ticket every week.


The store will get a half-percent share of the jackpot. It sold a $4 million winning ticket in 1996.


The desk clerk at the EconoLodge where Frierson was staying said the SuperLotto winner called Sunday to say she would be moving out in a few days.


Frierson said she is going to look for a place by the ocean.

If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

You never know when you will get another hit.

      How come the California Super Lotto Plus was dropped from the Marketplace section of the online lotteries of Biggamelottery.com? It used to be there. Especially after it went over $50 Million and ended at $91 Million.

          Absolutely!

          Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.
