Luz Torres of San Bernardino said that she only plays the Lottery once in a while, but she told us that her dad is a regular player and he’s always telling her that she should play more often. In fact, last week he decided to buy her a Strike It Rich! Scratchers ticket, and if you guessed this story would end happily, you are correct!
Torres told her dad that he could go ahead and scratch the ticket himself, so he did. When he saw the numbers match up, he could barely believe it. He tried to call her more than once, but he didn’t get in touch with Luz until the next day. “We looked at it two or three more times,” Luz said.
She added that she’ll probably use the money to pay off some bills and possibly put money down on a house for her family. And, there will probably be a few presents in the mix for her five children.
The winning ticket was purchased at Ontario Liquor, which is located at 1403 East 4th Street in Ontario. Torres and her dad came into the Lottery’s Inland Empire District Office this morning to claim their prize.
