TV Advertisement Inspires $1 million Lottery Win

A man from Fresno County  was so impressed by a TV advertisement for the California Lottery's 'Black Exclusive' scratch-off ticket he raided his swear jar so he could go out and buy one. His spur-of-the-moment decision turned out to be a profitable one because his $10 purchase resulted in a $1 million win.

Isaias Herrera, bought his winning ticket from the Texaco Star Mart, but the Riverdale resident told California Lottery officials he  usually allocates the job of buying lottery tickets to his wife because he's never had much luck with them. That may have been true in the past, but Herrera's luck has finally changed and if he ever doubts it he can remind himself anytime he wants just be taking a look at his bank balance.
