The owners of Alcon Liquor, a store on Saticoy Street in Canoga Park, are anxious to meet one of their recent customers again: The winning SuperLotto Plus ticket, matching all six numbers and worth $11 million, was sold there, according to cbs2.com. "Bob Medof, a California Lottery district representative, said he has been waiting for the winner at the liquor store since it opened at 6 a.m. He said Alcon Liquor stands to receive $55,000, as retailers are paid one half of one percent of a jackpot prize." It's the biggest-winning ticket ever sold there, beating out their previous record set in 1987 when they sold a ticket that was worth $3.2 million.

The winning numbers: 6, 13, 18, 26, 39 and mega-number 24. Did you win?

If you won $11 million, how would you spend it?
