  • Newest Scratchers® Ticket Pays Off Big in L.A. County!

  • Rachel Sepulveda admits she should have looked more closely, but was in a bit of a rush. “When I scratched it off, I completely missed that I had the winning number,” she explained. So she did what anyone should have done under those circumstances – she entered her $5 Smokin’ Hot Cash Scratchers ticket into the Lottery’s popular 2nd Chance drawing to try again.

    The computer cut straight to the chase. Her ticket wasn’t eligible for the Lottery's 2nd Chance Program because it was already a winner – $250,000 winner to be exact! “It’s a good thing I didn’t throw the ticket away!” laughed the 53-year old Los Angeles County woman. “And I still didn’t believe it until I showed the clerk (at the store) where I bought it.” Talk about luck on your side!

    The moral of the story? Don’t rush when you’re scratching away what could be a fortune! Sepulveda says she’s going to use her $250,000 winnings to help her family. “I usually did better at the casinos, but I can’t say that anymore,” she joked.
