Billy Spurlock is one lucky guy. That’s because he recently won $1,812,236 playing Mega Millions in Costa Mesa and he just can’t believe his luck.
“I’ve never won a thing in my life,” Spurlock told us.
Spurlock won big after matching five of six numbers in the October 10th Mega Millions draw. He matched the numbers: 16, 7, 61, 62 and 24, missing only the Mega number 2. Spurlock purchased his ticket at Costa Mesa Fuel, which is located at 393 East 17th street. This Orange County business wins too! It will be receiving a $9,061 retailer bonus just for selling the winning ticket. (The retailer bonus is not subtracted from the winner’s jackpot prize.)
So, does Spurlock have big plans for the money? “It’ll be a nice nest egg,” he said. “And it’ll make for a nice Christmas!”
Remember, you must have your original ticket when claiming any Mega Millions prize, so be sure you don’t forget and leave it at the store!
