  • 2nd Chance Wins Retiree $250,000

  • Jorge Contreras loves playing the California Lottery, especially the California Lottery Black Scratchers® game. In this case, however, it wasn’t a winning ticket that won him the $250,000 top prize, it was a non-winning ticket. Contreras simply entered his ticket in the California Lottery’s website’s 2nd Chance Program and became a big winner!

    Contreras is still in disbelief about his win, telling us “I didn’t believe it, I still don’t, I’m still in shock.” He doesn’t know what he’ll do with his newfound wealth, but does say he wants to help those who have helped him in the past.

    This is definitely the biggest win for Contreras, but not his first Lottery win. He remembers winning $575 about nine years ago. He bought the Scratchers ticket that eventually became a big winner at Tony’s Liquor, which is located at 5707 Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles.
