The determination of fifteen employees from Los Angeles has finally paid off after winning $7 million from a SuperLotto Plus ticket, matching all 6 numbers: 11, 13, 25, 30, 43 and Mega Number 4!
For the past three years they’ve been putting their money together twice a week in hope of hitting the jackpot. They were alerted by the retailer of the shop they always go to, he’d found out he was the one who’d sold the winning ticket so he told them it would be a good idea for them to check seeing as they were the ones always purchasing at his shop.
Checking the numbers from the California Lottery, they realised they’d definitely won, they had members of their group who were over 60 running around like they were still 12! “Words cannot explain the adrenaline” one member claimed. For each of them that’s a good $300,000 before taxes, it means a lot when some don’t yet own houses, some money will be put towards that as well as being invested towards family and kids. Arriving at the Lottery District Office they had other winners rubbing shoulders with them, in hope of getting some of that “luck” for themselves!
