CORNING, Calif. - The name of the man who won $1.7 million from a lottery drawing at a Corning Shell Station on June 26 has been revealed by Mega Million officials Wednesday.


According to an email sent by Mega Millions, the man who matched five out of the six numbers from the June drawing is named Jeff Godwin.


Lottery officials said he started playing three months prior to winning the prize.


Godwin told lottery officials:


“I just started [playing] like maybe three months ago.”


Godwin won the $1.7 million prize by choosing the Quick Pick option, Godwin adding that “This is surreal,” and “I don’t know how to explain it.”


Godwin’s ticket matched the numbers 39-25-60-29, and 17, missing only the Mega number 19 at the Shell Station at 2176 Solano St.


It is unknown if Godwin is a Corning resident.
