2) $141 Million in June 23, 2001

The second largest jackpot grew to $141 million in June 23, 2001. What’s notable about this win, though, is that there was only one lucky winner, so it holds the record for the SuperLotto Plus biggest individual win. Alcario Castellano of San Jose managed to pocket about $42.3 million after tax. Castellano, a 66-year-old retired supermarket clerk and active community leader, said he started off the morning as per usual, preparing a cup of coffee and reading the newspaper. After checking his ticket against the numbers from the previous night’s draws, he was in absolute shock; so much so that he went outside for a walk and double checked his ticket upon his return before telling his wife the fantastic news.

Alcario Castellano had been playing the lottery religiously, buying tickets for nearly every drawing for the past 15 years, from the same retailer. So it seems as if he was due for a win! The vendor where he bought his ticket was also full of smiles as he received a bonus commission of $705,000 – 0.5% of the jackpot. He has remained humble with his winnings, though, continuing his life as a philanthropist.
