One lucky man who hadn’t bought a lottery ticket in more than a decade took $20 he found on the street outside San Francisco International Airport and used it to buy two “$1 Million Jackpot! Scratchers” tickets, one of which won.

Hubert Tang bought the ticket at Andrea’s Market, located at 1601 El Camino Real in Millbrae, lottery officials said.

Tang, who works as a bartender, admitted he was in a state of shock following his win.

“I scratched the ticket outside of the store. I told my friend whom I was with that I didn’t know if it was real, but ‘I think I just won a million dollars,’” Tang said in a statement.

Andrea’s Market is also a winner, earning itself a $5,000 bonus, lottery officials revealed.

Regarding his new wealth, Tang stated he didn’t have any immediate plans to spend the money.

“For now I’m just going to put it in savings,” he said, according to CBS San Francisco. “Maybe I’ll start leaving $20 bills on the street in random places,” he added.
