Some Morgantown residents shared with the 5 News Team their reaction to the ticket being sold at their local Kroger.

“I would have bought a lottery ticket,” Yoksta Ruiz said.

Yoksta and Elizabeth Ruiz couldn’t believe it.

“How close was I around that person? I just want to know,” Elizabeth said.

The ladies added what they would do if they had one the lottery.

“If I won a million dollars, I would just invest into stocks or anything that can actually value money for me. So I become a Billionaire not a Millionaire,” Elizabeth said.

West Virginia Lottery officials asked the winner to sign the back of their winning ticket and call the lottery hotline (304) 558-0500 to claim their prize.
