A Man Wins $11.6 Million Lottery Prize Which Is Largest Wins Ever
A man named Chad Fry bought a $30 California lottery which makes him a Millionaire
He is now $11.6 million richer, according to a KTLA75 television report.
This has made Fry the largest scratch-ticket prizewinner in California's lottery history.
Fry said he was at the Foothill Market in Auburn to "buy some beer and a Lottery ticket."
The Set for Life Millionaire Edition ticket has a grand prize twice the amount of any other on the market, according to the lottery office.
Speaking of his winnings, Fry said: "I'm sure it will hit me that I'm a millionaire, all those zeroes.”
"I was like, 'Hold on, let me scratch this thing really quick.' I scratched the first line, got halfway through the second, and saw 'LIFE'," Fry told the lottery office.
The lottery administrators informed Fry chose to take the lump sum of $11.6 million after the federal tax deduction.
Fry plans to buy a new Ford pickup truck with the money
