Mountain View woman claims $300K lottery ticket
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- A woman literally pinched herself to make sure she wasn't dreaming after she won $322,019 in the MEGA Millions lottery.
Martha Lopez correctly matched five out of six MEGA Millions numbers. When Lopez walked into the California Lottery office to claim her prize, she actually had a bruise on her arm to prove it.
Lopez, who frequently buys her Lottery tickets from the same retailer, said that when she and the clerk realized that she had won, they both started crying and jumping for joy. Lopez purchased her winning ticket at Sav Mor Food Store, which is located at 689 Calderon Avenue in Mountain View. The ticket successfully matched the numbers 46, 39, 20, 6 and 41, missing only the Mega number of 42.
