NBC employee among winners of $266-million California lottery

An employee for NBC is one of the holders of a $266-million lottery ticket purchased in Pico Rivera, according to KNBC News.

"One of the owners of the winning ticket works at NBCLA. The owners of the winning ticket said they're not ready to come forward, yet, and asked not to be identified," the station said on its website.

Lottery officials have not yet identified the winner or winners.

The Mega Millions ticket matching all six numbers was purchased at L&L Hawaiian Barbecue on Washington Boulevard. The winner has not come forward.

At $266 million, this would be the eighth-largest Mega Millions jackpot in the game's history, according to the lottery website.

The winning numbers are 9, 21, 31, 36, 43, and the mega number is 8.

According to KNBC, a couple purchased the lottery ticket while having dinner at the eatery. The husband had recently lost his job, the station reported.
