Saturdayâ€™s California SuperLotto Plus jackpot will be worth $59 million, the highest it has reached since Saturday May 24 2014, when Eurico Chin of San Francisco won $70 million. The current total is the result of 47 rollovers since a single ticket holder snapped up $14 million on Saturday February 7.
Lottery fans across the state will be flocking to get hold of entries for the drawing, hoping to follow in the footsteps of Chin, who happened to be walking past the Safeway store on Noriega Street in the city and, on a whim, bought five Quick Picks. It proved a moment of inspiration for the 41-year-old, who took a month to decide what to do with his windfall before coming forward to claim the prize.
Chin announced that he would retire thanks to his newfound fortune and, with a $59 million ($36.7 million estimated cash value) California SuperLotto Plus win this weekend, you could do the same. You could buy yourself an idyllic four-bedroom oceanfront villa in Malibu, with access straight onto the beach, for $11.5 million and still have plenty left to fill the three-car garage with a fleet of luxury vehicles.
For your chance to live the VIP life for the rest of your days, you will need to buy California SuperLotto Plus tickets from authorised retailers within the state. Make sure you check the California Lottery results on Lottery.net soon after the draw is made to see if you are the next big winner in the Golden Stateby
