$5 Million Scratchers® Win in Reedley!


SACRAMENTO – The California Lottery’s newest $20 Scratchers game has only been out for a week and we already have a big winner! Mohamed Kassem purchased that lucky Million $$ Match ticket and won the top prize of $5 million.

The winning ticket was sold at Country Corner Market, which is located at 22015 E. Adams Ave. in Reedley (Fresno County). The retailer will receive a bonus of $25,000 just for selling the winning ticket.

Million $$ Match Scratchers offer players 29 chances to win and more than $340 million in total prizes. This new game is part of the Lottery’s continued effort to give out more prizes, create more winners and earn more money for education. For more information on the game and how to play, click here.

Also, like all Lottery Scratchers games, the Million $$ Match comes with a second chance to win the top prize. Just subscribe to our 2nd Chance Program and submit any non-winning Million $$ Match Scratchers ticket code for a chance to win.

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 95 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.
