Winning the lottery can change your life, but this California man didn't let it change who he was.
Max Coronado, a senior from Bakersfield, Calif., has been playing lotto at his local Howards Mini Mart three times a week for years, and he's always been big-hearted about it.
“A long time ago when he had a $100 winning ticket that my daughter sold to him, he gave her a $10 tip,” Sue Park, the mini mart owner who sells Coronado his weekly tickets, told ABC.
Earlier this week, Coronado won a Mega Millions prize worth $1,567,705 -- and his gift back to Park increased accordingly.
In an interview with ABC, Coronado said he would be paying for Park's dream vacation back to her home in Korea -- a trip worth $10,000.
“It doesn’t matter whether he gives it to me or doesn’t,” Park said.
Speaking of generous lottery winners, who can forget Gloria MacKenzie, the Florida woman who won the $590 million Powerball jackpot this May, then planned to gift $2 million to a school in Maine.
In June, millionaire lotto winner Bob Erb left a $10,000 tip for a diner owner after discovering that his daughter had been diagnosed with cancer.
