One man's $10, Delano convenience store scratch ticket proved worthy when he won a $6.5 million lottery prize, according to the California Lottery.
Edgar Cabanban Jr. found a "LIFE" symbol on his California Lucky for Life scratch ticket, which is the game's top prize. He will receive $5,000 a week for 25 years.
He may choose between the weekly payments or a lump sum of $3 million.
The ticket was purchased at the Fastrip Food Store, at 805 Garces Highway in Delano. The owner of the store will receive a retailer bonus of $32,500 for selling the winning ticket.
The California Lucky for Life games come with a second chance program for others to win a top prize. Citizens may submit any non-winning California Lucky for Life scratch ticket code for a chance to win.
