By Linda
Three unknown winners are today expected to claim their share of the $193 million Californian SuperLotto Plus. They matched winning numbers 6-11-31-32-39 this weekend. But the President's Day holiday meant the winners had to wait until today to present their tickets to state lottery officials.

The Associated Press report that the winning tickets were sold at: an Albertsons in Half Moon Bay in the northern part of the state, and at 7-Eleven stores, one in Orange and one in Montebello in the south.The store owners will receive £321.666 each for selling the tickets.

Byron Bennett, owner of the Montebello 7-Eleven, has already learned, in a 5 am phone call, that his store sold a winning ticket. 'I thought at first it might be my friend playing a little trick on me,' said Bennett, who must share half of his winnings with the convenience store chain. 'My wife couldn't believe I was so calm.'The $193 million sum is the largest single-state jackpot, and the fifth largest multi-state.

In the hours leading up to Saturday night's drawing, Californians made a mad dash to buy tickets.So did throngs of buyers from Mexicali, Mexico, who live on the border.The jackpot was such a draw that Web sites sprang up to illegally offer SuperLotto tickets to out-of-state buyers who didn't come to California. The rules state that a ticket must be bought in person, lottery officials said.
