Retired Truck Driver Wins Big Scratchers Jackpot


A retired truck driver  struck gold on a California Lottery scratchers ticket this week.

This week, Kevin Boson purchased a $5 California Lucky Life Scratchers.  As he scratched the ticket, he revealed the instant winner “LIFE” symbol, making him an instant millionaire.

“I couldn’t believe when I scratched off to reveal the ‘LIFE’ symbol”, Boson said.

Boson will take home $2,500 a week for the next 25 years.  He told the California Lottery that he plans to buy a new house and pay off the car he just bought.

This isn’t Boson’s first time striking gold on a scratchers tickets.  He’s previously won $2,000 on a Daily 4 ticket and $1,000 on another scratchers ticket.  Boson said his method for playing the lottery is to diversify.  “I go to all different stores when I buy tickets,” he said.

Boson purchased the winning scratchers ticket from a 7-Eleven store located at  7602 University Avenue in La Mesa.

Congratulations, Boson!
