SAN FRANCISCO – A San Francisco Bay Area man won $1 million in the California Lottery after buying a winning ticket with money he found at the airport.
The California Lottery says that Hubert Tang had not bought a lottery ticket in 10 years.
When he found a $20 bill on the street outside San Francisco International Airport last week, he used it to buy two scratch-off tickets at a market in Millbrae.
One of them led to the $1 million top prize.
Tang, who works as a bartender, plans to save the money for now. Lottery officials said the store will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
Tang says he may begin leaving $20 bills on the street in random places to spread his good fortune.
