Talk about luck!

This Orange County couple just celebrated a big win.

On a scratcher ticket, the couple won $5 million from the California Lottery.

Kendra and her husband Craig both had very different reactions once they saw their lucky ticket.

Kendra stated "I'm actually a really calm person, I just kinda passed it over to him to make sure I'm reading it right."

Craig purchased two scratcher tickets at a liquor store in Huntington Beach, but he was more emotional about the big win.

He was flipping out and crying. He wants his family happy and taken care of.

The two have played the lottery for a long time for fun and have won smaller amounts of money before. 

California Lottery says the store that sold the ticket will receive a $25,000 bonus just for selling the ticket.

As for the couple, they have the option to receive $200,000 per year for the next 25 years or get a sum payment of $2.9 million before tax.

Congrats to these two lucky winners!
