There are more young people playing in the lottery, but you don't often hear that one of the younger players wins a big cash prize. This has happened in the US state of Florida. Today, January 16, 2018, it was announced that a 20-year-old man, who is not even allowed to drink alcohol according to US rules, has won the $ 451 million jackpot. The winner opted for an immediate payment of 234 million euros and suddenly became a millionaire.
Job at construction company canceled
Before the 20-year-old man won the lottery, he worked at a construction company. When he heard that he had won so much money, he first called his brother and later his parents. He then resigned from his employer. If you have 234 million euros in your account, working is of course no longer necessary.
Pursuing passions and helping people
The 20-year-old lucky man is not yet sure what he wants to do with the large amount of money. He told reporters that he "wants to pursue passions" and "wants to help people." What this means exactly, he has not further explained. In any case, it is clear that for this 20-year-old man a whole new chapter is starting in his life.
