$200,000 Scratchers® Win for Monterey County Woman!


patricia lopez reyes 440

SACRAMENTO – According to Patricia Lopez, she had never won anything in her life. With a scratch of a ticket that all changed very quickly. Lopez walked into the California Lottery’s East Bay District Office yesterday holding a 20X The Money Scratchers ticket worth $200,000! Not a bad way to start a winning streak.

Lopez told us that she still doesn’t believe she won and probably won’t believe it until she has the money in her hands. When she does receive her money though, Lopez plans on putting her winnings toward purchasing a house… and buying more Scratchers tickets. 

Lopez purchased her winning ticket at Magana’s Meat Market, which is located at 965 North Main Street in Salinas (Monterey County).

The winning certainly doesn’t stop there – like all Lottery Scratchers games, the 20X The Money game comes with a second chance to win the top prize. Just subscribe to our 2nd Chance Program and submit any non-winning 20X The Money Scratchers ticket codes for another chance to win. The game is part of the Lottery’s continued effort to give out more prizes, create more winners and earn more money for California public schools.

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.
