Your New Best Friend: SoCal Man Wins $51M Lotto
What would you do if you won $51 million? A truck driver from Bakersfield is about to find out. Ronnie Orender, who is near retirement, found out Tuesday that he won the $51 million Mega Million jackpot, reports the Daily news. The odds, they note, were 176 million to one.
Orender's mother, Etta Urquhart, both purchased the ticket -- using Orenders' $2 -- and watched the results of the lotto, noting that she "thought [she] was going to have a heart attack" when she saw that Orender had won.
In a refreshing turn, Orender and his parents were open about their jubilant celebrations after discovering that they were suddenly multi-millionaires, noting that Orender drank several beers and they all intend to spend the money and "enjoy life," according to Bakersfield.com.
