SF Woman Hits $2 Million Jackpot on $20 Scratcher

A 29-year-old San Francisco woman hit a $2 million jackpot on a $20 Scratcher ticket, according to the California Lottery.

Bich Ha received the Crossword Deluxe Scratcher ticket as a birthday gift from her father and now plans to use her winnings to take care of her parents, lottery officials said.

"I really want to get a place for my parents," Ha told lottery officials. "I definitely want to get them a house, preferably in the city."

The ticket was purchased at Woerner’s Liquor at 901 Geary St. in San Francisco. The store owner will get $10,000 for selling the winning ticket, lottery officials said.

Ha became the second Bay Area millionaire in as many weeks from a Scratcher jackpot. On Sept. 21, Salvador Reyna won $3 million on a $5 Set For Life Scratcher he bought at a Fremont 7-Eleven.
