A Vietnamese refugee who left his home country as a penniless man in 1979 has won a $3.25 million dollar jackpot from the Lucky For Life scratch-off game of the California Lottery.

Phan Duc, a mechanic from San Jose had bought the $5 ticket from the Super Liquor and Food store on Sierra Road.  He then went outside and realized he had a winning ticket when he  read the word “life”.  The jackpot win entitles him to  $2500 dollars per week for the next 25 years.

He was so happy that when he went back to work, he told a co-worker.  He later had to stop his co-worker from spreading the news around.
