Did you ever dream about hitting the jackpot?
I always thought about it – who doesn’t hope? It was definitely a dream come true when I won. That’s a whole lot of money to me.
What were your initial thoughts?
I thought the ticket was fake; I couldn’t believe it. I needed proof so I went straight to the store to be sure I wasn’t mistaken.
Who did you talk to first, after finding out you had won?
My dad because he always tells me not to play, that I’m wasting my money. He said, “Good thing you haven’t listened to me.”
Will you continue playing the Lottery?
Yes, every now and then.
