latest news A woman buys a $2 million lottery scratcher from the donut shop in Compton. It’s not his first big win.

They say lightning never strikes twice, but the same does not apply to lottery tickets – at least for a woman.

Earlier this year, Ruby Evans purchased an Instant Prize Crossword Scratcher from Sweet Time Donuts in Compton. After checking it in her car outside, she thought she had scored a prize of $2,000.

Scratch that, though. Scanning the ticket inside the store, she learned that she had actually won 1,000 times as much – the top prize of $2 million.

“I’ll tell you what, it’s a great blessing. It gave me a chance to pay my bills, my mortgage and help my daughters,” Evans told California Lottery officials.

It wasn’t the first time Evans had won a large sum on a lottery ticket. In 2013, she claimed $100,000 after buying another winning Scratcher.

She also recently won $5,000 from a Scratcher purchased at Sweet Time Donuts, according to lottery officials.

His lucky streak has earned him a certain reputation in these regions.

“They say, ‘Ruby, haven’t you earned enough? Save a few winners for all of us,” Evans said.

A second $2 million ticket, also an Instant Prize Crossword Scratcher, was purchased at a Union 76 gas station at the corner of Ventura Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon Avenue in Studio City.

The owners of this gas station and Sweet Time Donuts each received a $10,000 prize for the sale of the winning tickets. Both were purchased in January, KTLA reported.
