Victor Diaz, of National City in San Diego county, hit an amazing $28 million top prize on Saturday, May 16. His ticket matched all six numbers drawn by the California Lottery - 3, 9, 23, 27, 35 and the Mega number 16.

Diaz purchased the winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 1601 East 18th Street in National City. The retailer was paid a $140,000 bonus for selling the ticket."We are in a residential area and even though some stores in our area have closed, we have stayed open to serve our community," Paul Morrow, the store's owner, said in May. "Selling Lottery products absolutely helps business, no doubt about it."

Although the ticket's numbers were chosen randomly, Diaz told CA Lottery officials he had felt good when he saw that 3 and 16 were two of the numbers, because a Bible verse he often quotes is John 3:16.

Diaz and his wife remained remarkably calm after learning of their win, visiting a bookstore and going food shopping. Diaz said he believes everything is a matter of God's will, Lottery winnings included.

They were also in no hurry to collect their incredible windfall, waiting until almost the end of the 180-day claim period before coming forward.

The couple have not made firm plans for the money yet, although they do want to purchase a home, give to charities and their church, and put aside funds for their children's college tuition. When coronavirus restrictions allow it, they'll also plan a family vacation. Beyond that, "we will wait to see what God has planned for us," Diaz said.
