OKLAHOMA CITY – Efrain Gonzalez is Oklahoma’s newest millionaire! The Tulsa resident won $1 million in the Powerball drawing that occurred on July 27, 2019.
As Gonzalez walked into the Oklahoma Lottery Headquarters, he knew his life was about to change for the better. He explains that he knew his ticket was a winner, but did not realize just how big of a winner it was.
“I always play Powerball, it is one of my favorite games. This time I decided to pick my own numbers, but I never thought I would ever win this big,” Gonzalez said.
The winning ticket was sold at Fuel Right located at 4826 E 33rd St. in Tulsa. When asked what he plans to do with his winnings, Gonzalez said he is still deciding but he will continue to play Powerball.
