Did anything unusual happen the day that you hit the jackpot?
Nothing unusual happened the day of my winning....Well, besides the jackpot in and of itself.
What did you do when you realized you'd hit the jackpot?
I froze up, and stared at the screen. Then I said out loud "no way!". I live alone, but I had to say SOMETHING!.... :-)
How long were you playing before you hit the jackpot?
I was playing for about 30 minutes before I hit.
How will you spend your winnings?
I will pay off some debt, and then invest most of the remaining amount. I will treat myself to a couple luxury items with a small amount of it.
What do you do for good luck?
I don't really do anything for good luck. I feel if it's going to happen, it will happen no matter what.
What piece of advice has most helped you through life?
Be true to yourself, and to others. If you are there for others, they will most likely be there for you when you need them.
What is your dream holiday destination?
My dream holiday destination is rather simple. I'd love to return on vacation to San Diego, California, and bring my girlfriend with me. I'd love to visit La Jolla Shores and watch the sunset with her while holding her in my arms, standing atop the coastline cliffs.
What do you do in your spare time?
I like bike riding, camping, anything outdoors. I also like spending time with those close to me that I love.
Tell us something you have always wanted to do and regret not doing. Will this win help you accomplish this?
I've always wanted to travel to foreign countries without a time restraint. Having a job makes that difficult.
If you were stranded on a deserted island what 3 things would you take with you?
I would take with me a companion so I have someone to talk with, a boat so I may come and go as I please, and a nice shelter fully equipped with supplies.
What is your ultimate goal in life?
My ultimate lifes goal is to be financially secure and be in a loving relationship with the woman of my dreams.
Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
I'm 32 years old and work for an oil company. I recently returned to work after being off on disability due to chronic back problems. I'm single at the moment. This jackpot will help me pay some bills that I incurred while being off from work.
