NORWALK, Calif. (AP) — The victor of a $26 million California Lottery
prize may have in a real sense washed the opportunity of a fortune down the channel.
The triumphant SuperLotto Plus ticket for the Nov. 14 drawing was sold at an Arco AM/PM corner shop in the Los Angeles
suburb of Norwalk. Thursday was the latest day to reclaim it.
No one did.
Store representative Esperanza Hernandez told the Whittier Daily News that a lady came in Wednesday and told laborers that she had placed the ticket in her jeans and it was annihilated in the clothing.
The senior supervisor's told KTLA-TV that observation video showed the one who purchased the ticket, and she's known to store laborers.
A duplicate of the observation video was gone over to California Lottery authorities, the director said.
The case will be examined, Lottery representative Cathy Johnston said.
Lottery authorities say somebody who accepts the person is a champ should finish a case structure. However, in the event that somebody loses a ticket, they should give proof that they possessed it, like a photo of the front and back of the ticket, the authorities said.
The triumphant numbers were: 23, 36, 12, 31, 13, and the super number of 10.
The $26 million prize can be taken in yearly portions or as a $19.7 million money
In the event that the prize isn't guaranteed, the $19.7 million will go to California state funded schools.
The store that sold the ticket will get a $130,000 reward.
It's exceptional for enormous bonanzas to go unclaimed, authorities said.
Four prizes of $20 at least million haven't been asserted since 1997, including a $63 million prize from 2015, Lottery representative Jorge De La Cruz told the Los Angeles Times.
