"I'd never played Powerball before, but I decided to purchase some tickets when the jackpot got over $1 billion," Williams said. "I was getting ready for work the morning after the drawing and remembered I had to check my tickets. I logged in to my lottery account and knew I'd won big as soon as I saw my account balance. I couldn't believe it!"
Williams scored a $150,000 prize from the drawing. He said his winnings will go toward making investments and remodeling his home.
"Winning is a huge relief and will allow me to do things I otherwise would not have been able to," he said.
