  • Escondido Man Turns $5 Investment into a Pile of Dough

  • Who doesn’t enjoy coming off of a nice three day holiday weekend? Well, if you were holding a lottery ticket worth more than a quarter of a million dollars – and you had to wait an extra 24 heart-pounding hours to cash it in – then you’d probably answer, “not so much.”

    This was the case for an Escondido man, who found out Sunday he’d matched all five Fantasy 5 numbers (10-17-19-26-39) and won $280,047. However, since Lottery offices were closed yesterday for the Veterans Day holiday, Neurb Pek had to sweat it out until today to claim his fortune. “I was nervous, but mostly happy,” admitted the 58-year old winner. “I’ve never had this much money!”

    A five dollar investment gave Pek five plays on his Fantasy 5 ticket. When he checked line “C”, he admits his mouth just about dropped open! “We went back to the store (where the ticket was purchased) to make sure. It didn’t seem true until we came to the (Lottery) office today! Then I thought it must be real,” added Pek.
