Pasadena Man “Strikes It Rich” [VIDEO]Monday, July 30th, 2012
Wins $50,000 Playing Scratch-off
Most every Lottery player has a system they believe will improve their chances of winning. For a Pasadena couple, it’s a simple one: he picks out the games, she scratches them.
David Albers, a retired truck driver, began playing the Lottery’s Strike It Rich game after receiving one as a birthday gift. “I’ve been winning with it pretty consistently and having fun, so I keep getting them,” he told officials. “Though my girlfriend, Kathy, thinks I shouldn’t.” In fact, she was sharing with him that exact sentiment while scratching his latest purchase. David told us, “Kathy was getting on me a little bit about it when she just stopped mid-sentence.” She suddenly realized that they won a $50,000 top prize.
