Persistence Pays Off Big for SoCal Lottery Player


SACRAMENTO – De Lo is an avid Lottery player. So when he saw the new 20x Crossword Scratchers® game at the 7-Eleven located at 9327 Garvey Avenue in South El Monte (Los Angeles County), he just knew he had to play. Well that was a wise decision on his part, as Mr. Lo won the top prize of $750,000 on one of the California Lottery’s newest and most popular Scratchers.

Lo plans to pay off his house and hopefully buy a car with his new fortune.

20x Crossword is the California Lottery’s first-ever $10 crossword Scratchers game. The game is the part of the Lottery’s continued effort to give out more prizes, create more winners and earn more money for education. 20x Crossword features a $750,000 top prize and a $75 Fast Spot.

The winning doesn’t stop there – like all Lottery Scratchers games, the 20x Crossword game comes with second chances to win the top prizes. Just subscribe to our 2nd Chance Program and submit any non-winning 20x Crossword Scratchers ticket codes for a chance to win. For more information on the game and a simulation on how to play, please click here.

The mission of the California Lottery is to provide supplemental funding to California schools while simultaneously supporting local communities. More than 96 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.
