Donald Ocker was shocked when he found out on Monday that the Mega Millions ticket he had purchased on Friday was a $250,000 winner. “It still feels like a dream,” he said. The 60-year-old said he usually checks his tickets on Saturday, but this week, he forgot.
Two years ago, Donald, a professional land surveyor, sat at his computer and compiled a list of previous Mega Millions winning numbers. He randomly selected six numbers, and has been playing them twice a week ever since.
The lucky winner plans on using the money to pay off bills and also hopes to buy his daughter a car. Donald intends to keep playing the Lottery and feels that a Mega Millions jackpot win is in his future.
The winning ticket was purchased at Cook’s Liquors, located at 18400 Point Lookout Road in Park Hall.
