A publicity shy woman named Claudia Williams is California’s newest millionaire, thanks to a Super Ticket she bought at a Long Beach tobacco shop, the California lottery said Tuesday.

Williams bought the Scratchers ticket at the Payless Tobacco Co. at 3290 East Anaheim St. on May 11. The retailer will now receive a $5,000 bonus.

Officials said Williams is on the shy side, declining to have a winner’s photo taken or to speak to the news media about her win.
