After scooping an enormous lotto fortune, it’s easy to get carried away and spend loads of cash on unnecessary things, but many lotto millionaires decide to put their new-found fortune to some good use. One man from Sydney, who recently became $50.000.000 richer, is a perfect example – he plans to open a restaurant and donate half of the food to people in need.
The anonymous man in his thirties matched the winning numbers 10, 19, 21, 23, 26 and 36 with the Power Ball 10 in Australia’s version of Powerball on May 11th. A few minutes after the draw, the fortunate Sydney resident already got a call from lottery officials, and thought it was only a prank at first.
“I don’t know what to do. What should I do now? Should I call my mum? Should I hug my wife? What do I do? I don’t even know how many zeros are in $50.000.000,” said the winner on the phone.
His family had been struggling since he lost his job at the end of last year, and described this victory as “a blessing” that came just at the right time. When asked what he’s going to do with this gigantic sum of money, the winner replied he’ll share it with his family and friends, and added he has a strong desire to genuinely help people.
“I want to open a restaurant – that’s my passion – and give 50% of the food away for free to people who need it. I don’t need profits, but there are homeless, students who are struggling, and people in need,” explained the winner.
