MILPITAS (CBS / AP) — A South Bay woman is California’s newest millionaire after turning in her winning California lottery ticket.
Lottery officials said Wednesday that Thi Nguyen is $14 million richer after coming forward with a winning ticket from the SuperLotto Plus jackpot drawing on September 29th.
Nguyen, who lives in Milpitas, told lottery officials that she’s not sure what she’ll do with the money, but planned to help her family and donate to her temple.
Nguyen bought her ticket at a market in Milpitas, which will get a bonus of $70,000 for selling the winning ticket.
