“I don’t know what I will do with work. I could take it easy or work harder.
“But one thing is for sure, I will certainly be taking some time off to enjoy life as a multi-millionaire.”
The ecstatic winner said he “can’t wait” to share his cash with family and close friends.
“I can’t wait to help my family. I want to buy my parents a house,” he said.
“I can’t travel at the moment, but as soon as I can, I will be straight on a plane to Las Vegas.
“There will be a few little splurges when I first get the money. I want to buy a ski boat and there will be a new car.”
He said he was getting ready to go to bed last night when he
checked his account to see if after drawing the Powerball numbers, he had won something.
“My heart was racing. I was shaking. I had to call my mum because I was just in total shock. She checked for me as well, and that’s when it started to feel real.”
