MODESTO, Calif. (AP) - A Modesto man's lucky hunch paid off when he won a $1,000 lottery prize and immediately bought more tickets - winning $10 million with one of them.

California lottery officials say Rodney Meadows was out running errands Nov. 23 when he decided to pick up some $30 California Lottery 30th anniversary scratcher tickets at a Modesto store. He won $1,000 on the first ticket he bought.


KCRA-TV reports Meadows decided to buy three more tickets a minute later and that's when he scratched the ticket that made him a millionaire.

Meadows says he had to ask the store clerk to check his ticket at the machine because he couldn't believe he had won $10 million.

He says he doesn't yet know how he'll spend his winnings.
