Many people have thought about winning the lottery. And some have even thought about how they would celebrate. But we’re guessing very few would celebrate like Noe Escamilla. He recently won $750,000 playing Mystery Crossword Scratchers and he celebrated by buying a few more Scratchers and winning even more money!
Let’s start with the big $750,000 win. Escamilla (pictured below) was at Allan’s Market Wine & Lotto in Port Hueneme when he bought his lucky Scratchers. At first, he thought he won $10,000. But when he scanned the ticket at the Lottery’s Check-A-Ticket machine, he saw how much the win really was.
“When I saw $750,000, my heart started beating rapidly,” he said. “I was in disbelief.”
After the win, Escamilla had to run an errand. Once he was finished, he went back to the store to buy a few more tickets. And get this – he won $100 on one ticket and $50 on another. That’s one way to celebrate!
Escamilla plans to use his winnings to pay off his house and some debt, buy himself a truck and help his family.
Allan’s Market Wine & Lotto is located at 2521 N. Ventura Road in Port Hueneme (Ventura County).
