Modesto man wins $1,000, then $10 million, off scratch tickets


A Modesto man had some serious luck bestowed upon him when he won money off not one, but two, scratch tickets -- making him an instant multimillionaire.

In a press release published Tuesday by the California Lottery, Rodney Meadows was running errands last week when he decided to pick up $30 worth of California Lottery 30th Anniversary scratch tickets at a Fast Mart off Coffee Road in Modesto.

The first ticket netted him $1,000, so he decided to keep going and buy three more scratch tickets a minute later.

And, as luck would have it, Meadows ended up scratching off a top prize-winning $10 million ticket.

Believe it or not, this isn't the first time Meadows has won some serious cash from scratch tickets. "I won $1,000 on two tickets before. I've been playing the California Lottery since day one," Meadows said in the press release.
