A winning $10-million SuperLotto Plus ticket sold at a Burbank liquor store remained unclaimed on Tuesday, officials said. Daniel Roh, owner of La Paz Liquor at 4101 W. Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank, said the man who bought the ticket came in to share the news at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Roh declined to reveal the customer’s identity, except to say that he lived nearby. “He comes in all the time and is a daily player,” he said. “Usually he used to play Fantasy 5, but whenever he had the chance he would go for the big one.” Either way, Roh will get a $50,000 check for being the seller of the winning ticket, said California State Lottery spokesman Elias Dominguez.
