Placerville Wife Scolds Husband, He Hides, Then Wins $1 Million From Scratchers

A good rule of thumb in marriage is to be open, honest and don’t hide anything. But Hermenegildo Beltran-Meza did the opposite. He not only hid some information from his wife, he literally hid from her too and then won $1 million.

Beltran-Meza purchased a couple of California Black Premium Scratchers but didn’t want his wife to know. That’s because she’d just lectured him about buying lottery tickets. So, when Beltran-Meza returned home from Holiday Foods in Placerville, he hid in the bathroom so he could scratch his tickets. The first ticket was a bust, but on the second ticket he couldn’t believe that he had just uncovered a $1 million prize.

Beltran-Meza ran to tell his wife the good news, and had a little fun delivering the message. “You said I’m never going to win and there I won, there’s proof,” he said.

Luckily for Beltran-Meza, his wife is a good sport. The couple celebrated the win and then came up with a plan for the money. They’ll use some of it for retirement and say it’ll provide them with a nice cushion.
