Many lottery winners choose to buy strange things with their winnings, but who are we to judge? Everyone is unique. This story is about a lottery winner from Canada who just won $1 million but is planning on using his winnings on a humble purchase. Read further to learn more.
The winner’s name is David Puchelu and he comes from Nova Scotia, Canada. David won $1 million with the national Lotto Max game and has revealed to the local press that he plans on using his winnings to buy himself a new mobile home.
In actual fact, we’re not judging David, we’re praising him! We always love to hear when winners stay humble and don’t waste their winnings on outlandish material possessions.
David is originally from Cape Breton in Nova Scotia but also works as a labourer on a three-week rotation between the oilfields of Alberta and his home. David said that he has been buying lottery tickets for quite some time and admitted: “I was hoping to win, of course, as I do for every draw.”
David is 55-years-old and bought his lucky Lotto Max ticket at Needs Convenience Store on Alexandra Street in Sydney. David joins the like of another Lotto Max winner in his area, Randall Sellars, who also won a big prize this month.
When the local press interviewed the store clerk, they said that at the time she sold David his winning ticket, she also sold three of the same in a row to other buyers. The store clerk joke, “You bought the winning ticket,” when David took it from her, and this joke actually turned out to be true! What are the chances of that?
David plans to put his $1 million towards buying a new mobile home. “The mobile home I have been in nice shape, but it’s an older one,” he explained to lottery officials. “So I want a new one,” he added. This isn’t unlike a couple of Irish Lotto winners who decided to spend some of their winnings on a new mobile home too. David also has plans to build a garage onto his property to create some space for his hobby of woodworking. David said that he wants to make sure that his winnings are properly set aside for investment and retirement.
David wants to do his best to take the time off he deserves and has been dreaming about for so many years. David said he wants to schedule some holiday time but then get back to work to keep his body and mind stimulated. He didn’t consider quitting his job. He said he enjoys his simple life and is looking forward to getting back to his hobby after his holiday. “I’m still a young man in my mind. I live a simple life and I like it like that. I’m just looking forward to going back to work,” he said.
Congratulations to David! He seems like a very humble and grateful winner.
