Remember the $3.5 million SuperLotto Plus Lottery ticket that was purchased at a Richmond store on Jan. 10?
The winner lives close to where she purchased the ticket — the Arco AM/PM at 15531 San Pablo Ave. — and this is the second time she and her friend have teamed to win big in a lottery, according to California Lottery officials.
In their most recent win, Cynthia Villanueva and pal Erlinda Ravelo split $7 million after playing the same numbers. Ravelo purchased her ticket in Milpitas, officials said. The numbers were reportedly a combination of their family members’ birthdates and anniversaries, lottery officials said.
The retailers who sold the tickets will each receive a $17,500 bonus.
