$200,000 Scratchers® Win for El Cajon Man
SACRAMENTO – Mike Kaspolis is a simple man; a small business owner who never expected to win anything like this. “When I bought the ticket, I scratched it and looked at it but didn’t know I had won. So I scanned it and then I knew,” he explained. He knew for sure it was real when he walked into the California Lottery’s San Diego District Office yesterday holding a 20X The Money Scratchers ticket, and it was confirmed that it was worth $200,000!
Kaspolis purchased his winning ticket at Ralley Quick Shop, which is located at 1108 Broadway in El Cajon (San Diego County). He seemed unsure what he would spend his newfound wealth on, but then perked up when talking about the new Camaro that is out. What color would he like? “Black and white,” he replied. See? He’s a simple man!
