Lottery ticket worth $1 million bought in Sunnyvale

SUNNYVALE (KRON)  - A South Bay lottery player won $1 million on a scratcher ticket he bought in Sunnyvale.

Ramon Ruezga purchased a $10 Xtreme Multiplier Scratchers® at 7-Eleven, California Lottery officials announced this week.

The 7-Eleven is located at 1002 West Evelyn Avenue.

The lucky winner said he already has an idea what he wants to do with the money.

“I plan to buy something … a little house outside the city,” Ruezga told lottery officials.

The 7-Eleven will collect a retailer bonus of $5,000 just for selling the winning ticket. The retailer bonus is not subtracted from the winner’s prize.

This is the second Bay Area man to win $1 million this month. 

Two weeks ago, a man bought a winning lottery ticket from a Safeway in Antioch.
