Miguel Calderon

  • Man Blessed With $2 Million Lottery Win in Monterey County

  • A Monterey County man is convinced that something he did right before he played his Scratchers® ticket changed his life. Before checking to see if he had the 10th word needed to win the top prize on the California Lottery’s Scratchers game, Miguel Calderon blessed himself. What happened next caused his heart to start beating fast and prompted him to begin jumping and screaming. The 64-year-old farm worker discovered he had indeed uncovered that final word and was holding a ticket now worth $2 million! 

    Calderon struggled to put his thoughts into words. “The only thing I know is that I’m here,” Calderon said, humbled after submitting his claim for his divine prize at the Lottery’s Sacramento District Office. 

    Speaking through an interpreter, Calderon told us he believes this was the Lord’s doing and he’s not going to make hasty decisions regarding his good fortune. The only thing on his mind right now is his family and perhaps a new house. When asked if his winnings might even be viewed as a catalyst to simply quit working, California’s newest millionaire replied: “No, because if I don’t keep working, if I’m at home, I’m going to be bored,” Calderon said.
