Millions won on Scratchers sold in San Diego

SACRAMENTO (KUSI) – The California Lottery has published a press release announcing that two different players won $1 million each on Scratchers sold at retail locations in San Diego.

The official press release can be read below:

SACRAMENTO – Luck is in the air in San Diego. Not one, but two different California Lottery players won $1 million each on Scratchers sold at retail locations within the city. Here’s where it all went down:

Kevin Cash scored his huge win while playing a $10 game called Emerald 10’s. This player purchased his lucky Scratchers at Convoy Liquor, which is located at 4383 Convoy Street in San Diego.

Fewer than 10 miles from that location, Alejandro Balio scored a cool $1 million on a newer $10 game. His win was on a 50X the Cash Scratchers, which he bought when he stopped by the 7 eleven located at 2387 Midway Drive in San Diego.

They aren’t the only winners. Each retailer will receive a separate $5,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning tickets. (This retailer bonus is not subtracted from the winner’s prize.)

Both Cash and Balio respectfully decline to speak with the media or to include a photo with this release. No additional information about them will be released.

The winning doesn’t stop here! All California Lottery Scratchers come with a second chance to win another great prize of up to $25,000 during our weekly draw. Just subscribe to our 2nd Chance Program and submit any non-winning Scratchers ticket code for a chance to win.

This is all part of the Lottery’s continued effort to give out more prizes, create more winners and earn more money for California public education. Remember, you must be at least 18 years old to purchase a ticket, play or claim a prize. No exceptions!
