Ubaldo Gonzalez of Moreno Valley may be one of the most persistent California Lottery players we have ever come across…And he has the evidence to prove it.
Gonzalez, who won the $205,737 Fantasy 5 jackpot on Monday night, said he has been playing the same Fantasy 5 numbers for the past 10 years. Not only has he been playing the same numbers for a decade, but he has a stash full of his old lottery tickets to prove it.
When asked why he kept all those old lottery tickets, Gonzalez responded that he really didn’t know, but now that he won, he can probably throw them all away. Gonzalez had twice before matched four of five numbers, but this was his first jackpot win.
Gonzalez, who is a truck driver, said that the money wasn’t enough for him to retire just yet, but it would definitely help him retire a little sooner.
The winning ticket was purchased at ABC Food Store, which is located at 24491 Alessandro Boulevard in Moreno Valley.
