$27 Million SuperLotto Plus® Ticket Sold in Fremont Claimed!


SACRAMENTO – Masoodul Naqvi is California’s newest multimillionaire! That’s because Naqvi purchased a SuperLotto Plus ticket in Fremont (Alameda County) that matched all six numbers from the April 18th drawing. The prize – an astounding $27 million (before taxes)! 

While Naqvi was very tight-lipped about his plans with the money, we can tell you this: the jackpot-winning ticket was sold at an ARCO ampm store located at 43500 Grimmer Boulevard in Fremont. 

Naqvi declined any potential requests for media interviews or to take a winner photo. No additional information about him can be released. 

The ticket matched the following six numbers: 18, 1, 32, 25, 9, and the Mega number 17. The owner of the store will receive a retailer bonus of $135,000 just for selling the winning ticket. 

The winning didn’t stop there in the Bay Area! Below are some of the latest California Lottery Scratchers® winners from over the last few weeks:

- Susan Levesque landed herself a fabulous $1 million prize playing a $10 game called Plu$ the Money! She bought her lucky Scratchers at Stop & Save Liquor, which is located at 755 Taraval Street in San Francisco.

- Bao Dien took home a $1 million top prize playing our $10 Triple Jackpot Scratchers ticket. That winning ticket was purchased at Café You-Me, which is located at 1694  Tully Road in San Jose.

- Lynn Trade scored a top prize of $750,000 playing a $10 Mystery Crossword Scratchers ticket. The winning ticket was purchased at Fast & Easy Liquors, which is located at 4475 Treat Boulevard in Concord (Contra Costa County).

SuperLotto Plus is California’s own in-state jackpot game. Players pick five numbers from 1 to 47 plus a Mega number from 1 to 27. The draw takes place at Lottery Headquarters in Sacramento on Wednesdays and Saturdays, right after draw entry closes at 7:45 p.m. PDT. Tickets are $1 and can be purchased from any of the more than 23,000 California Lottery retailers or one of the more than 4,000 Lottery Lucky Retailers. You must be at least 18 years old to purchase a ticket, play, or claim a prize. Please visit the California Lottery’s SuperLotto Plus site for more information. 

All California Lottery Scratchers games come with a second chance to win a great prize. The Lottery’s 2nd Chance Program offers players a chance to win weekly cash prizes of up to $25,000. Players enter their non-winning Scratchers tickets on our website and are automatically entered in the weekly pool drawing. A total of $100,000 will be given away every week.

This is all part of the Lottery’s continued effort to give out more prizes, create more winners and earn more money for California public education. Remember, you must be at least 18 years old to purchase a ticket, play or claim a prize. No exceptions!

The California Lottery is a $6 billion enterprise based in Sacramento. It is one of the few state agencies that is a revenue generator, not accepting taxpayer dollars from the State’s General Fund. Its mission is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. In FY 2017-18, the Lottery created 93 new millionaires. Ninety-five cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
