Bill Lawrence struck gold at Gold Ranch.
Last month, one winning ticket for the $150 million Powerball was sold at Gold Ranch Lottery on the Nevada-California border near Verdi. On Monday, Lawrence stepped forward as the winner, according to a press release issued by the California Lottery. Lawrence’s residency was not disclosed.
The retiree and his wife, frequent visitors to Gold Ranch, purchased the winning ticket for the Nov. 2 draw as part of their routine. Lawrence said he plans to buy a new home and help family members with the winnings.
“Everyone is going to get a bump,” he said in the release.
Powerball operates in 44 states as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The largest jackpot in its history, $1.59 billion, was drawn in January 2016.
Nevada is one of six states that do not participate in the Powerball lottery. The others are Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi and Utah.
