Orangevale resident David Williams Jr. had to think long and hard about the last time he won a big prize playing the California Lottery. After giving it some thought, he recalled twice winning $5,000 back in the early 90’s. It’s going to be a bit more difficult to forget about the prize he won last Friday night.
Williams matched five of six numbers in Friday night’s MEGA Millions® draw to win $581,319. His lucky ticket matched the numbers 38, 4, 27, 29, and 45, missing only the Mega number of 5.
When asked what he planned to do with his winnings, Williams wasn’t quite sure yet, but the father of two teenagers said that his son has already requested a new car.
The winning ticket was purchased at Greenback Shell, which is located at 9301 Greenback Lane in Orangevale.
