“LIFE” Changing Lucky Ticket Sold in Fresno


Lottery Prize Breaks Down to $2,500 a Week for 25 Years!
SACRAMENTO – What would it take to help change your life? One family now has a wealth of possibilities after winning $3,250,000 in the California Lucky for Life Scratchers® game.

Jennifer Garcia claimed the prize won on her $5 ticket at the California Lottery’s Central Valley District Office in Fresno. “It’s gonna basically help all of us,” said Garcia about what the win means for her family.

They aren’t the only ones who will benefit from the win. The lucky ticket was sold at the Arco ampm located 6020 North Blackstone Avenue in Fresno. That lucky retailer will receive a bonus of $16,250 just for selling the winning ticket.
The California Lucky for Life Scratchers family is part of the Lottery’s continued effort to give out more prizes, create more winners and earn more money for education. Games are available at the $1, $2, $5, and $10 price points. The top prize payouts range from $500, $1,000, $2,500, or $5,000 a week for 25 years!

The $5 ticket offers players the chance to win prizes ranging from a free ticket all the way up to $2,500 a week for 25 years. The top prize is also available as a $1.9 million lump sum payment.
The winning doesn’t stop there – like all Lottery Scratchers games, the California Lucky for Life games come with second chances to win the top prizes, as well as a bonus draw. Just subscribe to our 2nd Chance Program and submit any non-winning California Lucky for Life Scratchers ticket code for a chance to win. Five weekly winners will get $1,000, and one final grand-prize winner will get $10,000. For more information on the bonus draws, please click here.
