Man Wins $1M Lottery With $20 Bill He Found On The Street

A California bartender found $20 on the street, used it to buy a lottery ticket and won $1 million.

What do you do when you find a $20 bill on the street? Donate it, save it — or buy a lottery scratch-off ticket worth a million dollars? 

"Mom can definitely look forward to a new car or something," lottery winner Hubert Tang told KPIX.

Hubert Tang did just that, by winning the California State Lottery's million-dollar jackpot. 

Tang found the lucky $20 outside the San Francisco International Airport, and when he won, he wasn't sure if it was for real. (Video via San Francisco International Airport)

Now, Tang — who works as a bartender — says most of it will go into savings, but:

"We gotta at least have a little celebration kind of thing, right," he told ABC.

Tang says he also might try to pass his luck along by leaving random $20 bills on the street.
