Esparza took home a whopping $5 million after winning the top prize on a Year of Fortune scratchers ticket purchased at a Chevron gas station in Brea, Orange County. 

Hernandez-Jimenez also won the $5 million top prize playing a Neon Cash Party scratchers ticket purchased at a 7-Eleven in San Leandro, Alameda County. 


Get this - both Esparza and Hernandez-Jimenez matched the same number - 36- to win their $5 million each, lottery officials said. 

Dib won $2 million after his Mega Millions ticket matched five of the six winning numbers for Nov. 15, 2022 drawing. That ticket was purchased at a Shell gas station in San Bruno, San Mateo County.
