  • L. A. Gas Station Stop Leads to $1 Million Scratchers® Win!

  • Nelson Garcia loves playing the California Lottery. But due to his busy work schedule, he doesn’t always have time to stop and buy tickets. So recently, he gave his brother Armindo some money and asked him to go buy some Lottery tickets. His brother obliged and bought two $10 Scratchers at a local gas station –one for each of them to scratch. One of those tickets was a $10 50X the Money Scratchers ticket that ended up being worth the top prize of $1 million!

    Immediately after the win, Armindo took the ticket back to the gas station to scan and confirm it was a big winner.  The ticket was purchased at the Valero gas station located at 615 West Florence Avenue in Los Angeles. The retailer won big as well. It will be receiving a $5,000 bonus just for selling the winning ticket! (The bonus is paid from a separate fund and is NOT deducted from the winner’s prize.)

    We asked the brothers what their plans are for the money, and Nelson said he hopes to buy a house. They both would also like to start a small business together.
