No More 3am Starts for R86m Lotto Winner
A lottery win can totally change your life. A man from Durbanville on the West Cape of South Africa will tell you that is true. He won a R86m lotto jackpot (£4.3m) and now his days of getting up at 3am to go to work are over.
Lives changed overnight
The 42-year-old used to get up at that time to start his job as a street vendor. He spent his day selling fruit to help provide for his family. That’s no longer the case now he’s a lotto millionaire. No wonder he says of his win: “It is amazing. It changed our lives completely overnight. This is what we want, this is what everybody wants.”
The delighted player has been given some financial advice on how to spend his winnings. He’s not sure if his jackpot win will be paid in one go or in instalments
Now the lotto winner says he will spend some of his winnings but in a constructive way. Finally, the house that his wife has always wanted will be purchased. The rest of his winnings will be invested.
A dream will be fulfilled
The lotto winner is a big fan of rugby union. Now he’s looking forward to going to France for the World Cup. “I will watch every single game played by the Springboks. That was my dream.”
The lotto win really will change his life. “There is no pressure on me any more,” said the lucky player. Gone are the days of having to stand in the rain to sell bananas. “I’m not going to stand in the wind any more. I am not going to push my car when it is stuck in the mornings,” he said with a big smile on his face.
Winning a lotto prize does also present a few new problems. The Durbanville resident accepts that this is the case. He lives in a small area where everybody knows who he is. That’s why he has already moved house and said that was for “safety reasons.”
