This Mission Street Arco Just Sold A $10 Million Winning Lottery Ticket
You feel lucky, punk? If so, proceed directly to the Arco ampm station at 5898 Mission Street, about 1,000 feet from the SF/Daly City border out in Crocker-Amazon. That Arco just sold a winning $10 million lottery ticket to a lucky Bay Area player, so plan your holiday Lotto Scratcher buying trips accordingly.
A California Lottery Dec. 21 press release says that, “Arminda Villafuerte scored a whopping $10 million on an Ultimate Millions Scratchers she bought at the Quality Gas for Your Cash Arco station located at 5898 Mission Street in San Francisco.”

An Ultimate Millions Scratchers ticket looks like what you see above. It is an incredibly high-priced lottery ticket at $30 a pop. That single-ticket price is way beyond the means of the usual San Francisco gas station or liquor store Scratcher buyer.
I have personally wandered out to that very Crocker-Amazon Arco station drunk as hell in the wee hours. I can confirm that they sell reliably shitty but sometimes necessary heat lamp food 24/7, 365 days a year. The fact that they just sold a winning $10 million lottery ticket will give people another reason to consider popping in if they’re nearby and want to play the Scratchers this holiday season.
