Antulio Mazariegos recently walked into the California Lottery’s Van Nuys District Office with the $5 million-winning scratchers ticket. Mazariegos had purchased the winning ticket at Liquor Bank, located at 16925 Vanowen Street in Van Nuys, according to a California Lottery news release.

He explained there were only three remaining California Black Premium Scratchers left at the location, so he decided to buy them all.

But that wasn’t the only winning ticket the long-time lottery player was holding, according to KTLA. During the same visit, Mazariegos also turned in two other tickets worth $1,000 and $600 respectively, the release stated.

And all that was on top of the $1 million he won through another scratchers ticket last November. He bought that ticket at U.S.A. Donuts, located at 15321 Roscoe Boulevard in Panorama City.

Mazariegos told lottery officials he  just likes to play the game, and isn’t sure why he’s had such luck lately.

      In spite of the fact that you (or I) know *nothing* about this man or his family, I can guarantee you that trump (show me the tax returns), Exxon, the Koch Bros and their ilk have stolen billions of dollars more than anything this man could have possibly ever “stolen” from you. Where’s your outrage? And by the way he may also be a decorated veteran, hero or just an hard working honest American for all you know.
