Speedy Spot Ticket Makes Some Quick Cash for California Man

A retiree from San Bruno, California, made a profitable decision at the weekend when he popped into the Speedy Spot store; purchased a California Lottery "Fantastic 5's Scratchers" ticket, and won the top prize of $150,000.

Keeping a cool head about the win, Arturo Castillo, 68, said he intends to give some of the money to his children and put the rest into savings.

In a statement released via the California Lottery, Castillo said he and his family are excited about the win.

"They are really happy, really happy," Castillo said. "Especially my wife—if I die, the money is for her."
