    Two men seen on video may have been trying to improve their odds of hitting a big jackpot.

    Security footage captured the men stealing a California Lottery kiosk from a supermarket last week, and authorities were still searching for them, reports said Wednesday.

    The lottery machine was stolen about 3 a.m. Friday from a Safeway supermarket in Davis, the Sacramento Bee reported, citing a news release by the Davis Police Department.
