Private management could be Alabama lottery option

May 22, 2015, 7:17 pm ET

If Alabama gets a lottery, private management may at least be an option.

But the Republican leader of the Senate said Wednesday he did not want to commit to any particular proposal, being wary of some of the negative experiences of other states with private managers.

"Having no experience in the lottery field, we're just going to have to look at what other states have done and what's worked best for them," he said.

Marsh is sponsoring legislation that would establish a lottery and gambling in the state, in the hopes that it would help Alabama address a looming shortfall in the state's General Fund budget. The bill moved out of a Senate committee Thursday and is headed for a vote in the full Senate.

California Lottery

California man wins $1 million an hour after depositing $25,000 lottery winnings

May 20, 2015, 8:39 am ET

A streak of good luck made a Huntington Beach, California, man an instant millionaire immediately after he deposited a separate $25,000 payment from the California Lottery on Friday.

In April, retired postal worker Oscar Sosa purchased a $20 "Ultimate Riches" scratch-off ticket, where he won $25,000. He received a check on Friday from the lottery office, which he quickly deposited in a bank account.

An hour later, Sosa took $200 of that money and bought several "50X The Cash" scratch tickets from the Valley Smoke Shop at the 8900 block of Warner Avenue in Fountain Valley, which led to even more money — a $1 million prize.

Florida man wins $10 million in lottery scratch-off game

May 20, 2015, 8:08 am ET

A Hallandale Beach, Florida, man spent $25 on a Florida Lottery scratch-off card and etched his way into a life-changing, $10 million prize.

Bryan Goldstein, 36, bought his Florida Cash ticket Friday at Stop 'N Go at 800 Atlantic Shores Blvd. in the city.

He claimed his prize as a lump sum — $7,355,576 after taxes were deducted — Monday in Tallahassee, Lottery spokeswoman Meagan Dougherty said.

The odds of winning $10 million on a $25 ticket in this game are 1 in 8.1 million, according to the lottery's website.

Goldstein was familiar to cashier Josefina Skinner, who told store owner Hamdan Saleh that at first, Goldstein wanted four Florida Cash tickets, at $25 each.
