A Southland grandmother probably will never have to worried about being short of money for the rest of her life. Seventy-three-year-old Audelia Ramirez of Alhambra hit the jackpot in the Superlotto Plus game on Wednesday, August 30. Another player in San Diego got all of the winning numbers right as well, so they split the $18 million jackpot.
Ramirez bought her $9 million winning ticket at the Superior Super Warehouse at 9100 Whittier Boulevard in Pico Rivera. The winning numbers: 22, 27, 32, 31, 2, and the Mega number 11. When asked by lottery officials what she plans to do with the winnings, the retiree said she would love to buy a house and move out of her small apartment. Ramirez has six children and eight grandchildren.
Meanwhile, the Mega Millions jackpot is a lot richer today after no one picked all of the winning numbers in last Friday’s draw. The winning numbers: 7, 12, 19, 23 31, and the Mega Ball 45. In California, five lucky players got all but the Mega Ball right. Each of those tickets is worth $39, 316.
The Mega Millions jackpot stands at $54 million. The next draw is Tuesday, September 13 at 8 p.m.
