$3.25 Million Lottery Win
SACRAMENTO – A new car. A new house? Those are all things you expect to hear from someone describing their plans after winning the Lottery. However, Salvador Marquez sees even bigger things in his family’s future following his surprise win.
Marquez hit the top prize on a $5 California Lucky for Life Scratchers® ticket he purchased at a gas station in Fresno County. (You can see a scanned image of his winning ticket below, complete with the word “LIFE” on line one.) That’s $3.25 million! Marquez will have the option of selecting a lump sum payment of $1.9 million or weekly payments of $2,500 a week for 25 years. Either way, his newfound wealth is automatically exposing a wealth of opportunity that simply wasn’t there earlier.
