CHICAGO (WGN/CNN) - What's better than pulling a cookie from a cookie jar? Finding a winning lottery ticket.

That's what happened to Ricardo Cerezo. He was cleaning out a cookie jar filled with old lottery tickets when he came across a winner worth more than $4.8 million.

"When I realized we had all six numbers, it was like whoa, that shocking moment like can this really be. I called my son over and asked him to double check this. And he looks it through and goes, yup looks like a winner," said Cerezo.

He says he was facing foreclosure but will use the lottery winnings to pay off his home.
