Newest Scratchers® Ticket Pays Off Big in Alameda County!


Woman Claims the Game’s First $1,000,000 Prize  

SACRAMENTO – To say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend is an understatement, just ask Barbara Slattery. She claimed one heck of a dazzling prize in the California Lottery’s East Bay District Office – $1,000,000! That is the top prize in the brand new Diamond Millionaire Scratchers game.

Talk about a brilliant move. Slattery scored that stunning amount off a $10 ticket. She isn’t the only one who can delight in such splendor. Slattery bought her ticket at Cole’s Market, which is located at 4277 First Street in Pleasanton. The lucky retailer will also enjoy a bonus of $5,000 for selling the winning ticket.

Diamond Millionaire is the latest $10 Scratchers game. To win, simply match any of “YOUR NUMBERS” to any of the six “WINNING NUMBERS” and win that prize. Uncover a 10X symbol to automatically win 10 times that prize. Uncover a 20X symbol to automatically win 20 times that prize. Uncover a “Diamond” symbol and WIN ALL 20 PRIZES AUTOMATICALLY! Uncover a “100” in the “FAST SPOT,” win $100 instantly! Diamond Millionaire is part of the Lottery’s continued effort to give out more prizes, create more winners and earn more money for public education.

The winning doesn’t stop there – like all Lottery Scratchers games, Diamond Millionaire comes with a second chance to win the game’s top prize. Just subscribe to our 2nd Chance Program and submit any non-winning Diamond Millionaire Scratchers ticket codes for a chance to win.
