Lucky Day: Retiring Man Wins at Casino, Then Hits $1M Lottery
WESTLAKE, Ohio — March 13 was a lucky day for William Little, of Westlake.
About two months before he was set to retire from FirstEnergy, Little won $1 million after matching five numbers in the 2014 Mega Millions game.
According to Little, he went to the Northfield Rocksino right after work that day. He won $200. So he stopped and purchased a Mega Millions ticket on his way home.
Turns out, he ended up winning the lottery, too. After taxes, he’ll pocket $710,000.
Little said the win will contribute toward his pension, and he wants to take his family on vacation.
