Cruz Rivas Castro, from Central Valley has found out that he is the winner of a $750,000 prize after a journey he was carrying out to the Southland area to distribute fresh fish around markets in Los Angeles. During this trip, he and his driving partner decided to stop off for some coffee in Castiac and on the way they also went to the Pilot Travel Centre which is located at 31642 on Castiac Road – whilst here, Castro opted to purchase a California Lottery Scratchers ticket as he was feeling lucky that day, so he chose a few Mystery Crossword Scratchers. Getting back into the truck, he was in the middle of scratching the second ticket when he realized that he’d landed some big money! Knowing he’d won $750,000 he continued with his fish stops but he definitely spent the whole journey planning how he was going to spend it. “I’m dreaming now of buying a house and a car, I still can’t believe it” he exclaimed. What a fortunate fish trip for this man, he sure came back with more than he anticipated.
