Burbank Couple Wins $1 Million From Lottery Scratcher

BURBANK (CBS) — An early Valentine’s Day gift made a Burbank woman and her husband millionaires this week.

Tina D. was given the $1 million winning ticket by her husband, a long-time Lottery player.

Tina’s husband bought the lucky ticket at Vista Liquor, 2415 North San Fernando Boulevard in Burbank, on Sunday. The man scratched the ticket which revealed the million dollar jackpot.

“He promptly called his wife, who he referred to wisely as ‘the boss.’ After her initial excitement calmed a bit, she told him ‘get home right now!'” California Lottery officials said.

The couple plans to buy a home and new car with their new-found fortune.

Vista Liquor will receive a $5,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
