Murray, a partner in his family electronic parts business, has a routine of purchasing $30 to $40 worth of California Lottery tickets weekly. “I play lottery so every Tuesday and Wednesday night I can go to sleep dreaming of winning, you know,” he said.One night in July, his dream finally became reality. Murray beat the odds to win a whopping $6 million on a $10 Set for Life Scratchers ticket that definitely lived up to its name.

"Got home, scratched off three losers and then got the Set For Life ticket," he recalled of the life-changing moment. "I don't get overly excited. I called my wife. I said, 'hey let's keep this quiet,'" he told Lottery officials.

No chance of that happening. "She was in an office with nine women and of course started screaming," he recalled.

Next, Murray faced a conundrum about how to collect his amazing win - Lottery offices were shut for in-person claims due to the spread of coronavirus (district offices have since reopened for claims of $600 and up).

"The district offices were all closed, so I couldn't turn it in for a while. So I put it in a safe deposit box. I eventually drove down to the headquarters in Sacramento," Murray said. "There was a super nice lady in the parking lot who worked for the lottery. I ended up asking her, and she said I was able to go to the drop box at the Sacramento district office in Natomas."

Murray chose the cash option of $3.4 million, and a few weeks later, he received a check for the lump sum of $2.5 million after required federal tax withholdings. There are no state taxes withheld in California. The claims process went smoothly, although "a ginormous check coming to you in the mail felt odd to me," he said.
