Antonio Velasquez lives in a quaint community. It’s the kind of community where everyone knows each other’s names, even the Postman’s name…or the Postmaster’s name. So it’s no wonder that Antonio’s name will sound familiar to those in Lake County. Only now he won’t simply be known as Antonio Velasquez, the retired Postmaster, he’ll also be known as Antonio Velasquez, the winner of a $14 million SuperLotto Plus jackpot!
It was Velasquez’s son who told him that someone who bought their ticket at Oaks Red & White Store had won the SuperLotto Plus jackpot on Saturday night, and when he found out it was him, all he could say was, “Oh my God, oh my God!” Velasquez was quick to call his wife, who is in Greece, but he didn’t tell her the whole story. “She knows I won, she just doesn’t know how much,” he explained. As for what he plans to do with his prize, he says he wants to help his four children and eight grandchildren and also donate money to a couple of his favorite charities.
The jackpot-winning ticket was sold at the Oaks Red & White Store, which is located at 12580 Highway 20 in Clearlake Oaks. The winning numbers were 3, 4, 27, 30, 39 and the Mega number of 3. .
