Sometimes you just need a cheap cup of coffee to get through the day. One lucky Southern California man parlayed that hankering for a cheap gas station cup of coffee into a $1 million payday.
Nabi Hasani of Chula Vista, near San Diego, bought a $10 “The Perfect Gift” scratch-off ticket during a quick stop at an Arco ampm. According to a press release, he told the California Lottery that his “gut” told him to buy the ticket.
“It was just a random pick. I asked the cashier if it was true that I won,” Hasani told the California Lottery. “I still went home and showed my children and asked them to confirm it, too.”
Hasani hit the jackpot with only three squares left in the 20 panel game, revealing that a bell and the $1 million figure in box number 17.
Hasani told the California Lottery: “What a surprise! To know I’m helping schools and the children… It’s the best thing, actually.”
Hasani didn’t reveal any plans on what he plans to spend his lottery winnings on.
In a nutshell, one man, one $10 scratch-off, and a cool million in the bank. It’s a reminder that life’s biggest surprises can come from the smallest and most mundane occasions, like a simple coffee run.
