Sacramento County had two big wins in California Lottery draws this weekend, and both tickets were sold in the same town – Orangevale. One ticket was for the MEGA Millions draw on Friday and is worth $427,749! A man stepped forward to claim that ticket and he couldn’t be happier.
Steven Conley said he couldn’t believe it when he checked the newspaper this weekend and saw his numbers line up. “It’s just so amazing that something like this happened,” said Conley, especially since the most he’s won on this game was about $10. Conley immediately grabbed the paper and began showing it to everyone in the house. “I’m pretty sure they heard across the street, because we were pretty loud.”
That was nothing compared to the moment Conley realized how much he had won. Along with this ticket, Conley said he had purchased only one other ticket for the draw, both of them Quick Picks®. Ask him how he feels about his good fortune and he gets a little emotional. “I didn’t think it would happen for me, but it did,” said Conley while fighting back the tears. “These are happy tears, but yea, it feels great.”
Conley said he wants to be careful with his money and use it to accomplish a few things he has always wanted to do. He may get a few toys, which his family presumes will include a new truck. Conley also hopes to invest his money and put some away for his grandkids. The thought of being able to do that makes him happy.
