The alleged winner of the August 8 draws of the SuperLotto Plus had to take legal action in order to be proclaimed as the authorised winner. Lottery officials reported that the winning ticket was purchased at 7-11 situated at the Lassen Street, whoever holds that winning ticket has at least 180 days in order to claim the jackpot prize. The SuperLotto Plus results numbers 1-16-30-33-46 with 24 as the Mega number. In case no one claimed that jackpot prize in the matter of 180 days, it will be forfeited and the winning prize will be donated to the public schools in California.
Damaged SuperLotto Plus Ticket Rejected
While the California lottery officials are looking for that winner, a man from the Los Angeles County claimed that he owns the winning ticket. He presented the ticket that bears the exact matching number, but the lottery officials rejected his claim. According to the report, the alleged winning ticket looks reconstructed and is too damaged to verify that it is the SuperLotto Plus Winning ticket.
Brandy Milliner, the supposed winner of the $63 million winning jackpot, presented what was believed to be the winning ticket. He also claimed that he even received a letter from the lottery officials in California congratulating him for winning the jackpot prize. However, at a later date, he also received a letter from the California officials that his SuperLotto Plus ticket is too damaged to verify that he indeed won the jackpot prize.
Additionally, he also stated that the California officials refused to return the winning ticket. Milliner has no option but to seek the help of the legal professionals that will help him in pursuing the case. He hopes that the judge will pronounce him as the official winner of the SuperLotto Plus August 8 draw. Whoever won that jackpot prize has the option to receive a periodic payment of the total $63 million that will extend to more than 30 years or receive a one-time payment of $39.9 million.
Around the same time, KTLA5 News tweet an image of what looks like a SuperLotto Plus ticket that matches the winning result. Milliner claimed that he submitted the ticket to the California lottery officials, but they refused to return the ticket. Based on the image, the ticket looks like badly damage but the number of the ticket is still clear. In case this is indeed the winning ticket of Brandy Milliner, he should be able to receive his rightful prize even though the time limit has already passed.
This latest news has enlightened most of the avid players of the SuperLotto Plus that they have to take good care of their ticket. They have to store it in a secured place to prevent any possible damage. A slight dent on their ticket may prompt the lottery officials to void their winnings. In case you find the winning ticket, the California lottery officials instruct you to affix your signature at the back of the ticket and take it to the nearest district office immediately.
