With ear-to-ear smiles Ronald Willis, 55, of Rialto told media he usually purchases his lottery tickets locally but this time he was in Riverside at the 7-Eleven at 3740 Iowa Avenue when he bought the multimillion-dollar winning ticket.
Willis has not decided whether to take the lump sum of $92.1 million before taxes or the 20-year payments of $4.6 million each year.
The store received $600,000 for selling the ticket.
Willis, who grew up in the Inland Empire, says he's bought six tickets every week since the inception of the Mega Millions game.
He didn't want to say exactly what he does for a living but did say that retirement is high on his list of to-do's.
The former Washington High School football player did confirm that he would continue to play the lottery.
When asked why he wanted to keep playing, he answered "To win more money."
