A lot of winners come through the California Lottery District Offices. Some are happy and excited, and others are in shock. Our newest winner, Fredy Sanchez was the latter… and then some. He was in such disbelief that he was speechless at times. He just couldn’t seem to wrap his head around his big $750,000 win on the Crossword Ca$h Scratchers.
“I couldn’t believe it. I just couldn’t believe it,” Sanchez said of the moment he realized his ticket was a winner.
Sanchez’s head may have been spinning, but he didn’t waste any time heading to a district office to confirm the good news. But even then, while filling out paperwork to claim his prize, Sanchez still didn’t believe. “I’m still in shock. I keep wondering if this is real or not.”
It’s definitely real. Sanchez purchased that ticket at the Safeway store located at 1071 El Camino Real in Redwood City (San Mateo County).
So what’s next for Sanchez? He knows he wants to use some money to help his family, but he hasn’t thought past that. He’s still trying to let the news sink in.
