A woman buying a specific brand of tostadas for her father got more than she bargained for when she saw a California Lottery vending machine. She invested $20 in Big Money Scratcher tickets and received a big surprise.
She was eating the tostadas with her father when she started scratching the tickets, and started to count the zeros. When she realized she had won a million dollars she asked her father to double check. Though Catalina Deniston has not made concrete plans for her money, she says she is sure her parents will be taken cared of.
Store owner Brian Gong of Gong’s market who sold the winning ticket earned a $5,000 bonus.
