John Davis showed up at the Lottery’s San Francisco office and claimed his prize, choosing the cash option. He will take home more than $93 million from the winning ticket he purchased Aug. 27 at Bottle Liquor and Deli in Morro Bay.
Lottery officials described Davis as tight-lipped about his plans for the money, asking only that the minimum details be released to the public: his name, where he is from, and where he purchased the ticket.
Davis won the prize in the MEGA Millions game played in California and 41 other states. The winning numbers were 4, 10, 26, 32, 41 and Mega 31.
