Big winner sees a house in his future

William Coble

Drawing Date: 11/17/2023

November 28, 2023 - Greensboro, N.C., resident William Coble has dreamed of buying a house for a long time and, after winning a $1 million Mega Millions prize, he can finally make it happen.

“I’ve been saving for a while but I can finally do it now,” he said. “I would like to buy one in the Greensboro area.”

Coble bought his lucky $2 Quick Pick ticket from Sumner Food Mart and Hardware on Old Randleman Road in Greensboro.

“I buy tickets every couple of days because I don’t want to miss a drawing,” he said. “This time it paid off.” Coble matched the numbers on all five white balls in the Nov. 17 drawing to win his prize. The odds of matching all five white balls are 1 in 12.6 million. He said his mom broke the news to him.

“I had my mom go online to look up the numbers,” Coble recalled. “She told me, ‘Don’t get too excited but I think you won a million dollars.’”

He claimed his prize Monday at North Carolina Education Lottery headquarters in Raleigh and, after required federal and state tax withholdings, took home $712,501.
