But the ticket turned out to be a victor, and promised to flood his bank account with US$10,000 (NZ$15,000), or so he thought. He returned home to tell his two roommates of his financial success. But when he went to the Lottery's District Office in Sacramento the next day to claim his prize, he's told the ticket is not only not a victor, it was altered.
The man suspected his roommates of trying to cash in his winning ticket, and he went to the Vacaville police station to report the suspected theft.
The Vacaville Police Department said in a post on Facebook Tuesday that the $30 scratch-off lottery ticket was bought on December 20.
Saosongyang was not able to immediately walk away with the prize money.
"At some point during the night, the altered ticket and a winning ticket was exchanged", Polen said.
He came up with a plan to steal $US10,000 ($14,000) worth of lottery winnings from his roommate, only to discover the ticket was actually worth $US10 million ($14 million) - and that the police were waiting for him.
Lottery officials began the standard process of investigating the ticket, which includes filling out a victor claim form.
But, the next day, the real ticket surfaced when his roommate, identified as 35-year-old Adul Saosongyang, tried to turn in the victor.
Police in Vacaville, about 35 miles (56km) outside Sacramento, detailed the man's alleged plot against his now-former roommate in their viral Facebook post.
