One California SuperLotto Plus lottery ticket wins $72 million

California LotteryCalifornia Lottery: One California SuperLotto Plus lottery ticket wins $72 million

Someone who bought a California SuperLotto Plus ticket at an Alhambra drug store is holding stub worth $72 million, lottery officials announced on Sunday.

With the jackpot building for weeks on end, just one ticket was sold that matched all six winning numbers drawn last night. They were: 8, 13, 16, 19, 43 and mega-number 6.

The winning ticket was sold at a Osco/Sav-On at 145 E. Valley Blvd., according to lottery officials.

The buyer of the winning ticket could choose 26 graduated annual payments — $1.8 million the first year and $3.6 million the 26th year — before taxes. Should he or she want to cash out immediately, the ticket would be worth roughly half the jackpot.

The largest jackpot in California Lottery history reached $193 million and was won on Feb. 16, 2002, by the holders of three winning tickets, bought in Orange, Half Moon Bay and Montebello.

On June 23, 2001, Alcario Castellano of San Jose became the record-breaking highest individual jackpot winner of $141 million.

CA requires the choice to be made when you play, not after you win.
