She said she would take the prize money and pay off some debt.
Twelve contestants appeared on the Nov. 3 airing of the show with Sunderman taking home the third highest prize. All in all, the contestants won $377,500.
The big winner was Porfirio Siordia, of Moreno Valley. The construction worker uncovered the Spin-spin-spin on his Scratchers ticket sending him to the big spin wheel where he got to spin not once, but twice. Siordia’s first spin landed on the triple spoke and his next spin landed in the $100,000 spoke, making his total prize $300,000.
He said he plans to start his own business and also said, “I want to take my wife and kids to Hawaii.”
Michael Mastrocovo, a retiree from Fairfield, Calif., said he was thrilled to be getting his chance to play the Fantasy 5 Dream Machine.
“This is a dream. I have so much to be thankful for, especially my wonderful wife of 44 years and my family,” ssaid Mastrocovo.
Mastrocovo won $30,000 but said he was not sure how he would spend his prize money.

The lottery contributes at least 34 cents of every dollar that players spend on lottery products to public education and returns more than 50 percent of sales to players in the form of prizes.
Since its inception in 1985, the lottery has contributed more than $19.6 billion to California schools out of total sales of more than $53.25 billion. Retailers win too, said the lottery, earning $3.4 billion in compensation since 1985.
