A California man whose wife was not very happy with him for buying lottery tickets has reportedly won $1 million.
Hermenegildo Beltran-Meza was so wary of his wife finding out about his lotto purchases that he hid in the bathroom to scratch them off.
Beltran-Meza bought two California Black Premium Scratchers for $10 each, with one being the big winner.
“You said I’m never going to win and there I won, there’s proof,” Beltran-Meza told his wife, delivering the good news.
The couple said they will use some of the money to put toward their retirement.
Beltran-Meza purchased his winning ticket at Holiday Foods in Placerville. The owner of the store will receive a bonus of $5,000 for selling the ticket.
