In San Diego, California, a 7-11 legal gambling retailer was responsible for selling a lottery ticket worth $38 million. The game that cashed out the winner was the SuperLotto Plus where the winner matched five numbers along with the mega multiplier.

There have been no reports of a winner stepping forward to claim their prize just yet, however, under California state lottery laws, the winner of this prize must publicly come forward to claim the prize.

Moving on to the North Carolina lottery, a group of eight FedEx workers came together to collect a Powerball pool of $2 million. The group had been playing together for three years and had finally paid off. Each of the eight workers split $177k after taking out taxes.

The group matched the first five numbers which got the $1 million but the Power Play doubled their prize. The winning ticket was purchased at the lottery retailer and supermarket chain, Harris Teeter.
