Getting used to the high life is going to be tough for last Saturday's Super LOTTO winner. The $56 million dollar jackpot was won by one lone ticket holder according to Sang Lee who owns the Broadway Food Center where the ticket was sold. Ms. Lee informed Lottery officials that the winner told her that he was too busy working to claim his prize and didn't want to disrupt his place of business today.

Don't you play the lotto so you can quit working? That's some serious work ethic. Rest assured, the staff of LAist has a similar sense of commitment. Should we win the lotto, we'll be happy to continue posting about the wonders of Los Angeles. We'll just be doing it from Hawaii with strong alcoholic beverages in our hands.
