A South San Francisco retiree won a $23 million SuperLotto Plus jackpot on a ticket he bought just days before Christmas, California Lottery officials said.

Robert Imbellino didn't learn that he had won with the ticket until two days after Christmas, when a friend reminded him to check his tickets, according to Lottery officials.

"We laughed a lot but I think it was because we were all in shock," Imbellino said, describing his family's reaction to the news.

Imbellino said he hadn't decided what to do with the money yet. The ticket was bought Dec. 22 at Sunshine Center Pharmacy, at 1166 Mission Road in South San Francisco.

The winning numbers were 39-12-20-32-7 and the Mega number 20. Sunshine Pharmacy will receive a bonus of one half percent, or $115,000, for selling the winning ticket.

All past and current Lottery draw results can be obtained for free by calling 1 (800) LOTTERY or at www.calottery.com.
