Eurico Chin was in a Safeway when he suddenly had the urge to buy a lottery ticket. He gave in to his urge and bought a SuperLotto Plus ticket. Little did he know that his decision would change his life in such a big way.
A day after the May 24 draw, he learned that the jackpot had been won by a ticket sold in the same street that he bought his entry from. It turned out that he was the one who won the $70 million draw. But then Chin did not immediately come forward to claim his prize. He waited a full month to have the time to plan what he wants to do with his wealth.
He has not yet decided whether to take a $41 million jackpot or to collect the full amount of $70 million over a period of 30 years. Chin stated he will likely retire now at only 41 years old, buy a car and a house. He plans to invest most of his winnings. The Safeway store that sold him the winning ticket has earned a $350,000 bonus.
