Jerry, and Gina Villa have started off the new year with a huge $750,000 prize coming their way, as if the stars aligned for this family. They purchased the $10 Mystery Crossword Scratchers ticket from their local CVS which is located at 1456 Easy Yosemite Avenue in Madera County. However the set of events that got them the win were all down to chance, Jerry only stopped at the store because he had to purchase some Dayquil for his son who was poorly, and the Lottery machine had two of the same crosswords, giving a 50/50 chance of winning unknowingly. It's usually Gina, his wife who buys lottery tickets, and if it had been her in the store that day they may not have been so fortunate as she plays other lottery games over crosswords! The timing of the win couldn't have been better, as Jerry, 50 who is a chef supervisor has been wanting to buy a home, but the thought of a 30 year loan was daunting. Now these perfect circumstances have changed everything, "It's kind of a big weight off my shoulders and I'm extremely grateful" he stated.
