OCEANSIDE, Calif. — The winner of a Mega Millions ticket worth $410,115 was identified by the state lottery Monday as Edward Shaw, 57, of Oceanside.

Shaw regularly buys tickets at the Albertsons at 3925 Mission Ave. in Oceanside, and wasn’t aware that he had won until he returned to the store to check the results, lottery officials said.

Shaw called his wife to tell her the good news and said, “She went into shock.” The couple plan to use the money to pay off their house and to buy a new Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The winning numbers on the ticket, purchased Nov. 8, were 2, 11, 42, 64 and 74. Shaw only missed the Mega number of 2.

    Very well done to Edward Shaw – let's hope he truly enjoys his win.
    For the rest of us, the only way to positively guarantee winning the lottery is to get the numbers on your ticket to match the actual drawn numbers. Pity it's so hard to know that in advance! Some advice points: DON'T have regular special numbers – they can become a millstone round your neck and you dare not ever forget to do them. DON'T choose birthday or calendar date numbers – millions of people do that and you'll probably have to share any win. DON'T choose consecutive numbers (like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). Amazingly, tens of thousands of people do this, so your win share could be very small. DO consider lucky dips (quick picks) – it takes away the burden of thinking up your own choices. Better still, find a way of getting what you may think of as your personal lucky numbers. There's an online lucky number generator that could be worth a try. Look for villalibra.com and see if you can locate it. Finally…Good Luck to everyone!
