    Manger Pedro Sanchez says the store that sold the winning ticket only opened six weeks ago.

    This is no April Fools’ joke.

    Someone in San Diego County matched all six numbers in Wednesday night's SuperLotto Plus draw and is about to be a lot richer. But so far, no one has come forward.

    The winning $19 million ticket was sold at Seafood City on East Orange Ave. in Chula Vista, according to lotto officials.

    “It feels so good to be a winner, to be a store winner. It feels real good,” said manager Pedro Sanchez.

    He says the store only opened about six weeks ago and they’re very excited to find out who won the jackpot.

    “We don’t know yet. Maybe the winner doesn’t know either. He’ll find out. He’ll find out when he knows the ticket was sold here yesterday,” said Sanchez.

    The winning numbers are 41, 26, 18, 20, 22 and the Mega number is 19.

    The lucky winner will be able to claim their ticket starting at 8 a.m. Friday. Jackpot winners have 180 days to claim their prize.
