Last month, a Melbourne father who lost his job during the lockdown snagged the $80 million Powerball jackpot.
“I lost my job during one of the many lockdowns here in Melbourne. We had just bought a house and didn’t see it coming,” he says.
“Since then, I’ve been working as a cleaner to make ends meet. As for so many people, these lockdowns have been very hard on our family.
“But I’ve always said you just have to keep trying. Now, look what happened. It is absolutely unbelievable.’
Despite his life-changing financial windfall, the man stated that he just wanted to make his family’s life better.
“I definitely want to pay off the mortgage and the other bills we have to start with,” he said.
‘We are going to prepare our children for life. That will be incredible to be able to do. There is so much we can do with this price. It will change the lives of so many people!’
