$70 Million Winning SuperLotto Ticket Sold At Sunset District Safeway In San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A California Lottery ticket that matched all six numbers to win the $70 million SuperLotto Plus jackpot was bought at a Safeway in San Francisco’s Sunset District, a lottery spokesman said Sunday.

The winning numbers of 13, 11, 23, 27, 29 and the Mega number 10, were drawn Saturday night and a ticket with the numbers was purchased at the Safeway at 2350 Noriega St., lottery spokesman Alex Traverso said.

The jackpot is the largest for SuperLotto Plus since the $76 million top prize awarded on a ticket bought in Shasta City on Feb. 7, 2009, Traverso said.

The person with the winning ticket may claim the $70 million paid out as an annuity over 30 years or accept a cash payout of $40.9 million, before federal taxes are taken out, lottery officials said.

The Safeway store will receive $350,000 from the state lottery for selling the jackpot ticket.

SuperLotto Plus is a California lottery game where players chose five numbers from 1 to 47 and a jackpot-winning Mega number from 1 to 27.

The state lottery is also awarding $30,108 to two winners, one in Riverside and one in Hawthorne, who correctly chose the first five numbers but not the Mega, according to the state lottery’s website.
