A student from Prince George’s County in Maryland, USA, has been left buzzing with excitement after he realised that he had won $1 million on the Powerball lottery.
The lucky Powerball lottery winner, from Bowie, told Maryland Lottery officials that ever since he discovered he had become an instant millionaire he hasn’t been able to sleep, he’s so excited.
He went on to say that he only plays the Powerball lottery every now and then and that he can’t believe that he has won such an exorbitant amount of money on the September 29th drawing.
The 29-year-old said that it was while he was gassing up his car that he decided to buy a Powerball lottery ticket and a Mega Millions ticket. “Every now and then, it occurs to me. Sometimes I think about it, others I don’t.”
It’s a good thing he decided to buy the lottery tickets from Bowie Exton gas station.
It was three days later when he decided to double-check his lottery tickets. “I checked the numbers on the screen again and the numbers on the ticket again,” the lottery winner said, explaining that he had to check his ticket several times before he could quite believe that he’d won big.
“I kept checking and checking, even hours later, and the numbers still matched.”
“I’m going a million miles an hour on the inside, have been since Sunday afternoon,” he said. “I could barely close my eyes last night, I’ve just been thinking and thinking and planning and planning.”
When asked what he plans to do with this new found Powerball fortune, he said that despite thinking about it all the time, he still doesn’t have any immediate plans for his winnings, but that he wants to use some of it to travel.
