Chula Vista Man Wins $100,000 Top Prize on MONOPOLY™ Themed Scratchers® Game


Roderick Pacis

SACRAMENTO – Roderick Pacis is now $100,000 richer, thanks to the new MONOPOLY™ themed $5 Scratchers game from the California Lottery.

Pacis purchased his winning ticket at the Terra Nova Shell, which is located at 350 East H Street in Chula Vista. He said he thought the ticket looked “intriguing” and wanted to try something new so he purchased both a $2 and a $5 MONOPOLY™ Scratchers ticket. He was extremely excited when he won a $5 prize on the $2 ticket, so imagine his reaction when he won the $100,000 top prize on the $5 ticket!

Pacis says he plans to put some of his winnings in savings, get out of the small amount of debt he has and use some of it on his upcoming wedding, much to his fiancée’s delight.

The MONOPOLY™ Scratchers tickets are part of the Lottery’s continued effort to give out more prizes, create more winners and earn more money for education. To play, simply match any of your numbers to any of the five winning numbers and you win that prize. Uncover a train symbol to automatically win 10 times that prize.
