Curry bought her winning ticket in Atlanta at a Gateway Newstand in the lobby of an office building near the city’s Buckhead community; the other ticket was sold in San Jose, California, lottery officials said, who has yet to be identified.
California state lottery rules say a retailer can receive 0.5 per cent of the winning prize or up to $1 million, leaving Thuy Nguyen, the owner of Jenny’s Gifts in San Jose, with the hefty bonus. But over in Atlanta, Young Soo Lee, who runs a newsstand in the Alliance Center in Buckhead that sold the second winning ticket, will receive nothing, in accordance with Georgia law.
