Fresno County truck driver bought a scratcher before starting his route for the day, and won $750,000... ain't it cool to hear that a regular working blue collar guy wins big!?!?


A press release from the California Lotto says Cruz Rivas Castro was on his way to haul a truckload of fresh fish for markets located throughout Los Angeles but first, stopped in Castaic to fuel up and grab coffee at the Pilot Travel Center, and also decided to buy a couple of Mystery Crossword Scratchers.

Now, he's rich!

  1. My favorite one was from upstate New York, where another working stiff played the lottery with some of his co-workers. He also bought his own tickets, and won big - $42M if I remember correctly - on one of those. Then he gave each of the other guys half a million of his winnings, so they didn't feel completely 'so near and yet so far way' out of luck.

  2. I hope it doesn't ruin his life like it has so many others.
