The winner was about to go to bed on Thursday when he decided to check his numbers and found out his entire life was about to change.
‘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,’ he said.
‘I couldn’t sleep last night. I just kept thinking about the fact I am now a multi-millionaire.This changes everything for me and for my whole family.’
The man said the prize money would see him go from ‘having little to being insanely rich’.
After spending all night planning how to use his riches he said he can’t wait to buy his parents a house and help his family.
‘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.
‘I can’t travel at the moment, but as soon as I can, I will be straight on a plane to Las Vegas.’
The lucky winner said he would keep his job but wasn’t sure if he would ‘take it easy to or work harder’ once he got the funds.
His winning numbers were 24, 3, 30, 19, 27, 9 and 35, while the Powerball number was 1.
