  • L.A. Man Gets Shocking News from Store Clerk After Misreading Scratchers® Ticket!

  • Noe Contreras said he was “pretty happy” when he thought he won $1,000 on a $10 Mystery Crossword Scratchers® game. So, when he gave the store clerk the ticket to scan, you can only imagine his excitement when the clerk told him the ticket was actually worth $750,000!

    Contreras said that after the clerk scanned the ticket, he immediately got excited. “He was happier than I was,” Contreras joked. Contreras walked into the California Lottery’s Santa Fe Springs District Office to claim his top prize. He was also gracious enough to pose for a picture. And although he’s not flashing a $750,00 smile, trust us when we say Contreras was ecstatic about his BIG win.  

    The 28-year-old Contreras said he’s had great luck with California Lottery Scratchers, recently winning prizes of $100, $400 and $500. As for his plans for the future, Contreras said he hopes to use his winnings to buy himself a house.    

    Contreras purchased the winning ticket at T.P. Water & Discount Store, which is located at 15721 Amar Road in La Puente (Los Angeles County).
