Laarni Bibal bought the winning lottery ticket of more than $500 million on June 7
Laarni Bibal did not think much when she bought her ticket for the Mega Millions raffle on June 7.
That is, until the next day, whens he heard that a California ticket had won the Mega Millions lottery jackpot and was bought at her usual retail store.
“My heart started beating very fast!”, Explained the lucky winner to the California Lottery officials.
Bibal bought his ticket, as he often does, at Sorrento Deli Mart , located at 10920 Roselle Street, Suite 109-110 in San Diego.
His numbers chosen through Quick Pick (27-68-17-19-40 and Mega number 2) coincided with the six numbers chosen and won him the jackpot of $ 522 million.
Bibal chose the cash option and will receive $340 million dollars, before federal taxes.
Bibal took a while before claiming her ticket and used the Lottery Winners Manual to get information on how to become the new millionaire in California.
She plans to pay debts and buy a house with her lottery prize .
When asked where she kept the lottery ticket while waiting to claim it, she replied: “In a secret hiding place.” And when asked where she was, she replied: “I can’t tell you. The secret hiding place is still a secret!
The store also has its own good luck in this lottery play : the market will collect a retail bonus of $1 million for selling the ticket. That amount is not discounted from the prize awarded to Bibal.
