$1,000,000 Fortune for Huntington Park Winner


SACRAMENTO – California has its newest millionaire courtesy of the Lottery’s newest $10 Scratchers® game. Candelaria Burgueno walked into the Lottery’s Santa Fe Springs District Office holding a $1,000,000 Fortune Scratchers ticket worth a cool $1 million. Burgueno is the first player to claim the top prize for the new ticket. Twenty-four $1 million prizes are still up for grabs. 

The ticket was purchased at George’s Liquor & Market, which is located at 3224 East Gage Avenue in Huntington Park (Los Angeles County). George’s Liquor & Market will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The $1,000,000 Fortune Scratchers ticket is part of the Lottery’s continued effort to give out more prizes, create more winners and earn more money for education. The oversized red & gold ticket offers players 21 chances to win various cash prizes. To win, simply match any of "YOUR NUMBERS" to any of the six "WINNING NUMBERS" to win that prize. Uncover a "10X" to win 10 times or a "20X" to win 20 times that prize. Uncover a "WIN" symbol and win all 20 prizes automatically. Uncover a "100" in the FAST SPOT, win $100. Overall game odds of winning a prize are 1 in 3.30. Odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 1.2 million.

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 94 cents of every dollar spent by our players goes back to local communities in the form of contributions to public schools and colleges, prizes and retail compensation. The California Lottery urges its customers to play responsibly and within their budgets. If you feel you have a gambling problem, or know someone who does, you can get help at 1-800-GAMBLER.
