MARYSVILLE — Marysville’s Brian Williams recently won a brand new truck by playing the Washington’s Lottery “Trucks and Bucks” Scratch game.

Williams realized he won when a representative from Washington’s Lottery called to reveal that he was the first-prize winner of the second-chance drawing for the game, but in Williams’ own words, “I didn’t actually believe it until I saw the website.”

Williams chose a Deep Ruby Metallic 2014 Chevy Silverado, which he picked up from the Roy Robinson dealership in Marysville on Sept. 23. Williams and his wife Corina agreed that the truck would replace the SUV they have now.

“When it snows, it’s difficult to drive over some of the hills near our home,” Brian Williams said. “It will also be a special occasion car, to go to the mountains and snowshoe.”

After picking up their truck, Brian and Corina Williams planned to pick up their two sons from school in the family’s new vehicle.

Brian, a computer technician, and Corina are avid Scratch ticket players, in addition to occasionally playing Washington’s Lottery draw games. They previously won $1,000 on two separate occasions playing Scratch games, but winning a new truck is their biggest prize yet.
