The sunshine kept people streaming into Rohnert Park's Kwick Pick Market and Deli Sunday on Golf Course Drive for cold soda, beer, sandwiches and cigarettes.

There was one question on most people's minds.

"Has the millionaire come in yet?" asked Nolan Graham, 32, of Rohnert Park as he walked in the door.

A customer sometime last week bought the winning ticket for the SuperLotto Plus game for a $13 million jackpot.

Someone out there beat the odds. One in 42 million, to be precise.

"We don't know who it is," clerk Danny Patel, 38, said. "Maybe even the winner doesn't know."

California Lottery officials announced at 8:30 p.m. Saturday that a lucky customer bought the winning ticket at the Rohnert Park market near the Foxtail Golf Club neighborhood and Highway 101.

The winning numbers: 2, 3, 10, 22, 25 and the meganumber of 7.

On Sunday, market staff unfurled a banner and posted signs inside and out from the Lotto: "Millionaire made here. Are you Next?"

"Somebody got it from here, nothing is better than that," Patel said.
