Christmas Day Win Inspires Seasonal Goodwill

A (California) SuperLotto Plus ticket purchased from Treat's General Store in San Andreas proved to be a Christmas Day winner, but the owner of the $8 million winning ticket has yet to come forward.  Store owner, Fred Lavaroni, stated, "It's probably somebody local. I hope so." He and his brother, John (who co-owns the store), have also come up trumps because they will receive a $40,000 commission for selling the ticket, and the brothers already have plans for their lottery windfall. "We are splitting the $40,000 with our employees so everybody will benefit," Fred Lavaroni said.
