(KGTV) - Who needs Powerball when you can win a nice chunk of change from California Lottery Scratchers? Two San Diegans are celebrating major wins from their tickets, lottery officials announced Friday.

Gabriella Ralda bought a Mystery Crossword ticket worth $750,000 for a $10 investment from the 7-Eleven at 1482 Hilltop Drive in Chula Vista. The cash prize odds are one in 7.79.

Jeremiah de los Reyes spent $10 on a Holiday Sparkle ticket which led to a $1 million payoff. Odds of winning a cash prize are one in 4.11. The seller, a 7-Eleven at 1469 State St., will receive a retailer bonus of $5,000.

If you’re feeling really lucky, you can try to beat the odds by playing Powerball. Saturday night’s drawing is worth $625 million.
