In an incredibly rude move, a Brisbane uni student has won the entire $20 million Powerball jackpot and says he’ll give up work for life. I hope I speak for everyone when I say: what the fuck. Givvus.
The winner, who is in his 20s, said he’d use the money to give his family and friends a bit of a break after a shithouse year.
“I’m never going to work again,” he told The Lott.
“People give their whole lives to work, but I’m going to put my family and friends first. I’m going to help them and surprise them — some have been through a tough year.”
The winner decided to remain anonymous (fair enough), but lives in the Brissy suburb of MacGregor.
He was the only winner of the $20 million Powerball jackpot, so he gets to keep the lot.
He told The Lott he’d been trying to call his family to tell them the literally life-changing news, but unfortunately, they were all asleep.
“They’ll see all these missed calls from me.”
Usually you see five missed calls and assume someone died. Must be nice for it to be good news.
He also said he’d be watching a movie to “calm down” after hearing the news. I wonder what he watched. I wonder how quickly he quit his job. I wonder what it’s like to win twenty million dollars.
