Young apprentice lottery winner will spend winnings on Lego

A young apprentice lottery winner from Australia won $4.8 million on the lottery. His Set for Life lottery ticket won him $20,000 a month for the next 20 years.

The lucky winner, in his 20s, says he plans to use some of his winnings on Lego. He said that he plans to continue working, but he’ll blow off some steam with his new found wealth.

Plans to splash the cash

“On my silly list is a plan to go to Legoland and buy $20,000 worth of Lego,” he said.

The apprentice lottery winner was delighted to win the top prize on the lottery. “I would have been happy winning $10,” he said.

The winner is from Wongan in Western Australia. He didn’t discuss how else he wants to spend his winnings as he was claiming the big prize.

A lottery game for a comfortable lifestyle

A spokesperson for the Lottery, Jennie Fitzhardinge, said that they were delighted he was keeping it real.

“The fact our most recent winner says that while the win is life changing and will give him a comfortable lifestyle, that he will continue to work, is what this game is all about,” she stated.

She continued to discuss how the Set for Life game was perfect for young players. The top prize is $20,000 a month for 20 years, which can set up a young person for the rest of their life. “It’s a great way to enjoy the winnings over an extended time,” she said.

More wins for Western Australia

Another recent Western Australian winner was a Perth mother who won $3.3 million just before Mother’s Day. The ticket was bought for her as a Mother’s Day present by her husband.

It also follows the winner who was joking she won but then found out she actually did. She read news of someone in her town so pretended it was her. After her son took a closer look at the ticket, it turned out that she was the winner after all.
