Once the victorious Victorian processed his multi-million-dollar win he immediately went back to bed!
“I thought I’d won one million dollars, not twenty million dollars! I assumed multiple people won the prize, not just me! I never thought I’d become an overnight multi-millionaire!” he explained.
“Once I get off the phone with you, I will go back to bed and have a nice sleep in. But then I’ll call my family and share the news with them, and I’m sure they’ll want to do something!”

“Oh gosh! Is this real? I can’t believe this. I don’t believe you! I’m an essential worker, so the past two years have been crazy busy during the pandemic. I can’t wrap my head around this,” he cheered.
“The first thing I’m going to do is travel. I’ve been working hard for a long time, and I’d love to put my feet up and relax. Southeast Asia is on the top of my travel list! This is a dream.”
