A California man was arrested Monday after replacing his roommate's winning lottery ticket with a fake one and trying to cash in what turned out to be a $10 million ticket, authorities said. Beating the odds, the man's ticket turned out to be a victor that he thought would net him $10,000 in time for the holidays, The Washington Post reports. He was told by lottery officials, however, that the ticket wasn't a victor and had been altered.

On 20 December 2018, his roommate, whose identity has not been revealed by police, went to a Lucky convenience store in Vacaville hoping for some holiday good fortune and spent $30 on a scratch-off lottery ticket.

Once lottery officials were notified, they lured Saosongyang to the office where he was arrested. The next morning, he went to the Sacramento district office of the California State Lottery to collect his prize, but officials said his ticket was worthless. "Adul was told his winning ticket was not worth $10,000 dollars, but was actually worth $10 million dollars!" He excitedly went home to tell his roommate, Saosongyang.

Vacaville police say Adul Saosongyang, 35, was taken into custody as he attempted to claim the prize on Monday.

Forbes reports that Porzingis' max contract would cost four years, $122.4 million, which is roughly $30.6 million per season. Porzingis is 7-foot-3 and has been sidelined since last season with an ACL tear.

Police say the victor has not yet received his windfall, as the lottery completes their administrative investigation. Collecting a prize of such a sum involves submitting a detailed claim form, either in person at a district office or else in the mail, according to the state lottery.

Vacaville police spokesman Chris Polen told The Washington Post that lottery officials had talked with the victim, though he wasn't certain the man would collect that $10 million.
