Feeling lucky? 

California's latest batch of lottery millionaires are taking home checks ranging from $1,000 to $5 million thanks to some lucky scratchers.

In El Cajon, Joshua Flores turned his diaper run at Walmart into a payday instead after he purchased a Mystery Crossword Scratchers game at the machine inside the supercenter. 

 "I have two babies, so there are two sizes of diapers I had to get. I thought I’d just put this ten bucks in," Flores told the California Lottery. "I was so stoked that I called my girlfriend and told her. It was pretty cool. I went back in there and grabbed more diapers!"
