MANTECA (CBS13) – A man who bought a Scratchers ticket in Manteca is more than $1 million richer – and he didn’t even realize he had won until much later.
The California Lottery says Michael Brandon recently purchased a Multiplier Mania ticket at the Manteca Mart Liquors store.
Brandon scratched the ticket and didn’t think he was the winner. Instead, he tried joining the online 2nd Chance program. However, that’s when the system told him he had won the $1 million prize.
“I had to get some other person to double-check it, and sure enough, it was (the winner),” Brandon said in a statement from the California Lottery.
Brandon had planned a trip to Disneyland in March, but he said he might be extending that trip — or getting an upgraded room.
He also told the lottery that he wanted to start his own business with this money.
