Mike Gregor, 67, of Camino is $289K Powerball winner
...Gregor said before releasing a check the lottery office goes through an extensive process. When he and his wife Karen dropped off the winning ticket, he was interviewed to confirm that he was the one who bought the ticket. The lottery office also sent an investigator to the Camino Food Center where they pulled the video of him buying the ticket to verify his identity. He said doing so protects people against the loss or the theft of a winning ticket...
“I’m not scoffing at the amount, he said, “but in today’s age, this amount is not life changing.”
Gregor said he regularly buys tickets but is not a big gambler. “I’ve won different things in the past,” he said, “but not this much money before.”
