SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- California Lottery officials say the second of two winners of the $636 million Mega Millions jackpot has come forward to claim the prize.

Steve Tran of Northern California came forward Thursday afternoon, 16 days after officials revealed there were two winning jackpot tickets. The California winner was not identified.

The other winner, Ira Curry, is from Georgia and came forward to claim her prize on Wednesday. Lottery officials there say she opted to take the lump sum payment of about $120 million after taxes.

The winning ticket in California was purchased at a gift shop in San Jose. The gift ship owner will receive $1 million.

The jackpot is the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. history. It started its ascent Oct. 4.
