How Would A Powerball Winner React?

With a $107 million jackpot currently up for grabs on the Powerball lottery, thoughts of taking home the big American lottery jackpot are top in the minds of all lottery players.

If one thing is certain, it's that no one quite knows the way they will react to a lottery win.

A good example of this is Candido Oliveira, a 47 year old unemployed man from Massachusetts, USA, who made the news for the rather unusual way in which he reacted to his jaw-dropping $32 million Megamillions lottery win.

After hearing that the winning Megamillions ticket had been sold at a store near his house he claims to have simply 'known in his heart' that he was the winner. In fact, he did not even check his numbers to confirm that he had won.

“I spent the next two days playing my guitar," he said.

Candido did eventually take the time to check the winning lottery numbers, confirming what he had suspected, that he was now a multi-millionaire!

When asked about what he planned to do with the money, the unemployed lottery winner had the following to say:

  • he has not yet decided what he is going to do with his money
  • he will definitely be buying a house and taking care of his family,
  • he will be buying a new car (he has not yet decided which one)

So as you can see, everything is still very new and unplanned for this recent $32 million Megamillions lottery winner. One thing that is certain though is that Candido Oliveira is no longer looking for employment! “I think I’m done," he states, "I just want to relax!"

Candido made his $32 million fortune through good old fashioned luck playing the USA Megamillions lottery. There are 3 USA lotteries currently on offer at Megamillions, the Powerball and the Californian SuperLotto Plus.

With a current Powerball jackpot of $107 million we know which one our money is on!
