Ca’s $266 Million Mega Millions Winner Revealed: Meet Jacki and Gilbert Cisneros
California’s Mega Million winner has finally revealed themselves. The lucky couple is no other than Jacki and Gilbert Cisneros. They won Tuesday’s $266 million pot money. Jacki is a television news employee at KNBC. She was in shock when she discovered she had the winning ticket.
“I felt like my legs were going to fall out from beneath me,” she said. Jacki was on her night shift duty when the winning numbers were revealed and has announced that the ticket was purchased in Pico Vera. She then called Gilbert to have their tickets checked. They screamed in so much excitement when they learned that they were the lucky winners.
Jacki can’t turn her back from working so she decided that she would still be working in KNBC as long as the network will hire her. The luck that they encountered is indeed a real blessing because Gilbert just recently lost his job. The couple said that they chose the numbers in random and they bought it in L&L Hawaiian Barbecue at 8760 Washington Blvd in Pico Rivera. The restaurant also received $1.3 million for selling the winning ticket.
The next draw would be on Friday and the jackpot would be $12 million.Follow us on Twitter to get free up-to-date news via tweets from the World Correspondents, or you can subscribe to us by entering your e-mail below.
