  • Paying Rent Turns into an Offer to Buy the House Instead

  • Christian Searing is a relatively new Lottery player. He’s only been playing for six or seven months, but when he plays, he doesn’t want to waste any time. Searing only scratches the bar code portion of his tickets and then he scans them to find out if he’s won anything. He’s a man who knows what he wants! Recently, on the way to pay rent for his family, he realized he won $1 million on the Deluxe 7’s Playbook Scratchers® game! So, armed with the knowledge that he was an instant millionaire, when he arrived at his landlord’s house, he offered to buy the house they live in instead of just paying the rent.

    Searing told the California Lottery that he also wants to use his winnings to open a business, start college funds for his kids and help his family. He said “I just want to be a millionaire for the rest of my life.”
