Retiring from FirstEnergy, William Little of Westlake adds $1M to pension with Mega Millions win

Retiring FirstEnergy employee adds $1M to pension

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, Ohio - The hits keep coming for William Little. Retiring from FirstEnergy before the end of May, he stopped by Northfield Rocksino and won $200. Nice haul, right?

He figured, Why not get a Mega Millions ticket on the way home?

So that’s what the Westlake man did before the March 3 drawing .

And the next day, he was $1 million richer. (Well, $710,000 richer after taxes.)

At first, he knew he’d won something—his ticket matched five numbers—but he didn’t know what. So he enlisted help from his son and daughter.

Little plans to add it to his pension, but not before he takes the family on a vacation.

Oh, and a celebratory lunch at the Northfield Rocksino.
