Victor Argueta, from Los Angeles only had the intention of paying for some gas, when he found out that he had won $1,000,000 with the California lottery. Argueta, pumped his gas at an L.A Shell gas station which is located at 1107 South Hacienda in Hacienda Heights – but realised the machine hadn't printed a receipt for him so he popped into the store to get a new one. In the store, he was at the register when a $10 Plu$ the Money Scratchers ticket caught his eye and prompted him to buy a single ticket. He scratched it off immediately, eager to find out if he had won, and there it was in front of him – a $1,000,000 prize! Argueta asked the cashier to double-check the win for him and she responded "Wow, you're right!". Soon after, he called his wife to let her know and both of them with crying with happiness at the news. Now, the couple say they have made plans to purchase a home after many years of hope. The retailer will also receive a $5,000 financial incentive for selling the winning ticket. Looks like getting some gas resulted in a huge return for the family.
