Winners' Stories California Lottery
  • $1 Million Scratchers® Win is “Out of This World” for Wife and Author in Oakdale

  • Some players win big, some win small and some not at all. For Paula Shindler, $250 Million Cash Spectacular wins started small and have taken off for her and her husband Kim.

    Paula was happy to win $50 on a $250 Million Cash Spectacular Scratchers ticket. She was excited to win $200 on the same game shortly after. With her luck on the rise, she purchased another ticket last Friday and was thrilled to scratch away a galactic win – the $1 million top prize.

    But her husband Kim, the author of a science-fiction book that dreams big, was not moved. “Let me know when you have more details,” he said.

    After confirming the $1 million win was truly non-fiction, Paula and Kim have planned to pay off their home and use the big win to help promote Kim’s book “Bencodi: The Lasting Saga.”
