A man, who was heartbroken, ended up winning over $4 million in lottery on the same day he got dumped by his boyfriend.
Yes, that happened.
I can imagine the face of the girlfriend regretting because they dumped him on the wrong day.
The man got to know that they had won the lottery hours after the girlfriend moved out of the house that they were living in.
Well, yes, that happened.
The man, who is from Johannesburg, South Africa, will buy a fridge for his former girlfriend to show that they have no hard feelings.
After realizing that the he had won the lottery, the man got a cold shower so he could calm himself down.
The man, who was not identified, is 30 years old and works in the finance sector.
His won was confirmed after he went to the National Lottery Operator Offices on January 19, 2021, to claim his massive win.
He got to know that he had won on January 15, 2021.
Talking about the win, the man said:
I still cannot believe that I have won this much, the most I’ve won from the Lottery is R500 (about £24). My live-in girlfriend had just broken up with me, and I was not in the best of moods. By the time I checked the results on Friday night, I was by myself as she had already moved out. When I realized that I had won, I thought I was dreaming. I immediately went to take a cold shower and then came back to check again. It was real – lady luck was on my side, but clearly not so much for her!
Despite the win, the man said he will not retire from work.
The man said he will be investing and donating his winnings.
Because of my profession, I am clued up on the kind of investments I want, to ensure that my money keeps working for me and bears interest. I am not going to resign. At the rate things are going I am anticipating a retrenchment in the organization that I work for and in the industry as a whole. So I will wait for the retrenchment package and my upcoming bonus. It’s money that I have worked hard for so I am definitely waiting for it.
The money that he will be donating is going to animal shelter and people that earn less.
He also said that he is going to buy a fridge and a washing machine for his girlfriend just to say that there are no hard feelings.
