Kern County man offers another $6, later wins $750K lottery prize


It’s the good deed and scratch one man will never forget after a trip to a Ridgecrest mini mart.

He’s the winner of the California Lottery’s $750,000 Impossible Dream jackpot.

Lottery officials say Michael Forsberg loaned a man $6 who appeared down on his luck right before he walked in. Forsberg bought a California Gold scratcher ticket and an hour later, won the big prize.

The purchase was made at Ed’s Mini Mart and Gas on North Norma Street.

Forsberg is no stranger to striking it rich, he says he won $10,000 about seven years ago playing the California Lottery.
