A Fort Stockton man’s year just got so much better after winning $2,000,000 during the January 6 Powerball Lottery.

Jose M. Sarabia worked in New Mexico and got all five number right, but missed the red Powerball number. 15 other lottery players won $1,000,000, but Sarabia is the only one to double that prize by using the $1 Power Play.

According to the New Mexico Lottery, Jose plans to pay off his house and vehicles, donate to his church and help his parents.

So what advice does he have for you?

He says, “Keep on playing. If you play, you win. One of these days, it will be your lucky day.”

Here’s to all of us hoping our lucky day arrives sooner rather than later. Congrats to Jose!
