You have to play 'chew' win

San Francisco resident Christos Mastrokyriakos, a construction management student, has won $100,000 from a Big Spin ticket.

He purchased the ticket when he stopped at a store to buy gum and turned in a winning “Big Spin Scratchers” ticket to get another Big Spin ticket.

When he scratched the new Big Spin ticket, he uncovered “Spin-Spin-Spin.”

Mastrokyriakos said he plans to take his girlfriend on vacation either to Hawaii or Australia for New Year’s, according to California State Lottery officials.
