RIALTO, Calif. (AP) - A Southern California mail carrier now has a whole heap of cash to tote around too.

Sheila Williams of Rialto won $750,000 not playing Super Lotto or Mega Millions but the California Lottery’s Crossword Cash Scratchers game.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise (https://bit.ly/1vG4eZD ) reports that Williams said she didn’t understand the game’s rules all that well and at first wasn’t sure she’d won before she consulted a friend. She had to finish a whole day of making her mail rounds before going to a lottery office and learning her payout was real.

Williams, who has three adult children and five grandchildren, says she’s going to use the money to pay off debts and buy a house.
