Did anything unusual happen on the day of your win?
I did not do anything out of the ordinary other than say a prayer that morning - which is not ordinary for me.
What was your initial reaction to your big win?
I was alone here at the house and I initially had to look twice because I could not believe I had won! When I finally caught my breath, I looked down at my credits and realized I REALLY HAD HIT THE JACKPOT!!! I actually starting laughing out loud with joy and then ran to the phone to call my spouse and share the great news. He of course, wanted to know if I was going to share!
How do you plan on spending your winnings?
I am going to repay a debt to my wonderful parents, buy a new bed, and then save the rest.
How long had you been playing before you won?
I had played Fruit Fiesta for about 4 hours the day before and then for about 4 more hours on the day I won.
What advice do you have for others?
My Dad always told me two things that have really helped me through life. 1) No matter what, everything always works out.
2) The time to spend money is when you don't have it.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I am a workaholic - I don't have a lot of spare time. However when I do have spare time, I enjoy live gambling, reading, writing poetry and a good long bike ride when the weather is nice. I also enjoy racing cars and walking my dogs.
What 3 things would you take with you on a deserted island?
I would take one of my dogs for companionship, a mirror so that I could signal to be rescued, and a pen and paper to keep a journal.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
I am very happily married now for 15 years. Ladies do not give their ages away - so let's just say I tell everyone I'm under 39. I am a senior level Director for a large, worldwide corporation.
