A Fresno woman became $1 million richer Wednesday thanks to a birthday gift.
The California Lottery said that Jessica Venegas received a 50X The Cash Scratchers ticket as a present and ended up winning the competition’s top prize. She told lottery officials she plans to pay off her house and use the money to make life easier.
The winning ticket was purchased at West Park Market at 3466 S. Valentine Ave. in southwest Fresno. The convenience store earned $5,000 for selling the winner.
Venegas declined to do any interviews.
