  • Chico Man Has to Look Twice to Believe His $1 Million Scratchers® Win

  • Mark Leary wasn’t sure he had won the top prize on the California Lottery’s $250 Million Cash Spectacular ticket, so he wanted to take a second look. Since there wasn’t very good light in the restaurant he was in, he explained with a laugh, “I took it in the bathroom so I could see better. It looked like $1 million to me!”

    Leary said he tried to have the retailer check it yesterday, and when the machine came back with a vague message, he thought that was a good sign. “She told me to come in to the Lottery office today and claim my prize. It made for a restless, long night,” he said. 

    Leary purchased his winning ticket at The Studio Inn, which is located at 2582 Esplanade in Chico (Butte County). The retailer will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
