SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A San Diego man is $1 million richer Friday after purchasing a lottery ticket in Talmadge.

Teven Lam recently bought a $10 scratcher at the 7-Eleven located at 4745 El Cajon Blvd. Upon revealing the numbers on his "50X the Cash" ticket, he learned he had become an instant millionaire.

”I can’t believe [my] luck!” Lam told lottery officials. He has not said what he will do with his newfound wealth.

The 7-Eleven that sold Lam his scratcher will receive $5,000 just for selling the winning ticket.

Lam's win comes after another million-dollar windfall, when a man won $1.6 million on a penny slot at Valley View Casino and Hotel.
