Patrick Johnson, public affairs officer at the Oregon Lottery, told the Oregonian that the tickets were not Quick Picks, where numbers are randomly generated by the computer.
Svitak did not tell his wife about the winnings. He went to Salem to get the check and then bought a truck.
"On the way home I got a new truck and put the oversized check they gave me on the windshield," Svitak told the Oregonian.
Svitak showed his wife the check and truck when he returned home.
"She hasn't stopped giggling since," Svitak told KDRV.
