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.
