Haven't we all at some point in our lives scrolled through online shopping websites, wishing we could just magically win the lottery and buy everything on our wishlist?
Well, this wish just came true for Shaji Matthew from Kerala, India, who became the largest single winner of a massive 3.3 crores jackpot. (And here we thought we were lucky because our crush finally saw our Instagram story).
“When I first saw the email and received the call from Lottoland, I thought it was a prank. It was only after the process started that it started to sink in”, said Shaji in an interview.
Still struggling to comprehend the vast fortune of his win he added, “When I first saw the amount, I thought it was 33 Lakhs. It wasn’t until later when I was told it’s an 8-digit figure and 3.3 crores!”
While we dream of spending lottery winnings on lavish ‘wants’ and desires, actually winning a jackpot this massive forces you to think twice before spending it.
Shaji who spun his way to the jackpot on the Atlantis Casino online slot game, also plans to continue and not miss out on the coming week’s Powerball jackpot which crosses a whopping Rs. 5000 crores.
Lady luck definitely seems to be on Shaji Matthew’s side. And we’re just really hoping she visits us sometime soon!
