After two months, the winner of an $11 million SuperLotto Plus ticket sold in San Diego’s Golden Hill neighborhood has finally claimed his prize.
Since August, the winner of the jackpot remained a mystery, but Friday California Lottery officials announced that jackpot-winner, Daniel Lindsey, came forward to receive his winnings.
Lindsey purchased his winning ticket on August 10 inside Golden Hill Liquor located at 2795 B Street. The ticket matched all six numbers in the SuperLotto Plus drawing – 44, 46, 7, 5, 14 and Mega number 27 – to win the prize.
Back in August, Golden Hill Liquor's owner, Alla Abbo, told NBC 7 San Diego he was thrilled by the news.
“We’ve been here almost 30 years in this place, and a lot of people know us really well. We are really happy for everyone in this place, and everyone in this area,” said Abbo. “I am so excited.”
Lindsey can choose to receive his prize in annual payments or in cash. Officials say the cash option amount will be approximately $6.3 million.
Abbo's store also won $55,000 for selling the winning ticket.
A jackpot winner has 180 days from the date of the SuperLotto Plus drawing to claim the prize.
