Lottery dough: Local guy wins $8 million & millions more up for grabs
Friday, January 8th, 2010
A Highland Park college student is really going green this year. Green as in dollar bills. The Pasadena City College student, who doesn’t want his name released, won the SuperLotto jackpot on Saturday, January 2, 2010, according to the California Lottery website. The jackpot was worth $8 million bucks. Not the kind of jackpot that draws media attention, but enough financial security for this guy to quit his part time job at an auto parts store and to go to school full time.
Oh, the lottery winner wants to use some of his new riches to help others and, “travel to the corners of the world.”
The Mega Millions draw worth at least $48 million
Now if you want to talk about some serious money, tonight’s Mega Millions drawing is worth at least a hefty $48 million. California is one of several states that participates in Mega Millions, the largest multi-state lottery game in North America. The drawing tonight is at 8 p.m.
