NATIONAL CITY, Calif. (KGTV) — One lucky local struck it rich in a recent SuperLotto Plus drawing, winning a $28 million jackpot.

Victor Diaz purchased his SuperLotto Plus tickets from a 7-Eleven at 1601 East 18th Street in National City, according to California Lottery. Although his numbers were randomly chosen, Diaz said he had a good feeling when he saw two of his numbers were 3 and 16, relating it to the Bible verse "John 3:16."

His numbers 3, 9, 23, 27, 35 and Mega number 16 ended up being the perfect pick, netting him the $28 million jackpot.

The 7-Eleven will also receive $140,000 for selling the winning ticket, the state lottery says.

Although Diaz told the lottery he doesn't have plans for the money yet, he and his wife want to buy a house, donate to their church and charities, and start college funds for their children. A family vacation may also be in the cards.

Other than that, Diaz said, "We will wait to see what God has planned for us."

It wasn't clear if Diaz decided to take the lump-sum payment or annual payments for his jackpot win.
