$5.5 million SuperLotto ticket purchased in Koreatown
As three public school educators stepped forward to cash in their share of the Maryland Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million, California Lottery officials announced a local multimillion-dollar winner for Saturday’s drawing.
The winning ticket matched all six numbers -– 9, 16, 25, 45, 47 and Mega number 5 -– in Saturday’s SuperLotto Plus, earning its owner an estimated cash option of $5.5 million, according to Alex Traverso of the California Lottery.
The ticket was sold at the Wilshire World Postal Center, 3010 Wilshire Blvd. in Koreatown, which will earn one-half percent, or $40,000.
