SACRAMENTO—This is quite the story. A man bought a $10 California Lucky for Life Scratchers ticket at a convenience store in Delano and it hit big! How big? Well, when it comes to this family of games things couldn’t have gotten any better.
Edgar Cabanban Jr. uncovered a “LIFE” symbol on that ticket. Look at the scanned image of his ticket below. You can see the wording on the second play line. Notice, it also includes his prize amount. That’s right! He scored the game’s top prize — $5,000 a week for 25 years! Do the math. That amounts to a grand total of $6.5 million. He’ll now get to choose between those weekly payments or the lump sum cash option of $3 million. Either way, this winner is now a multi-millionaire!
Talk about a lucky guy and a lucky retailer. Cabanban purchased that winning ticket at the Fastrip Food Store, which is located at 805 Garces Highway in Delano (Kern County). The owner of the store will receive a retailer bonus of $32,500 just for selling the winning ticket.
