Officials from California Lottery stated that it was Heng's first time playing the lottery. His grandmother had bought the ticket for him as a present.

Heng told the California Lottery that he was 'pretty stoked' and didn't expect to win the lottery. He further added, “My mom was driving me to go fishing, and on the way, I scratched it. We had to pull over. It was a million dollars, and I didn't even have an ID yet! We turned around and went home because I had to get an ID before I could even claim the ticket.”

Heng also told the California Lottery that he wants to use the money for college and invest in his future.
