Australian Winner of £78M Jackpot Says He Will ‘Keep Working’

It is a question we all get asked now and then: would you keep working if you won millions on the National Lottery or in a land-based casino?

Some people who love their job more than most would say yes. People who are unhappy at work might say no. The truth is that we just do not know until it happens. 

We do know that one lucky winner of a $150m (£78m) jackpot has declared that they will continue to work. 

The sum is beyond most people’s wildest dreams and would set off thoughts of a sports car, a luxury villa on the Med and someone to do the washing, cleaning, cooking, and ironing or is that just me? 

The Australian winner from Adelaide may just be in shock after scooping the Australian Powerball prize but insists that he will continue to work.  

What are the Multi-Millionaire Ozzy’s Plans?

The Ozzy winner has said that he would like to buy a house and a car, to travel and to help his family and friends. Wouldn’t we all? 

In an interview with 9News, the lucky winner said: 

“I have never screamed so loud or jumped so high.” 

He also told the news channel he was at work.  

What are the Chances of Winning?

The chances of walking into a petrol station in Salisbury, Adelaide and picking a winning ticket might be akin to being struck by lightning three times at your wedding. For this Australian man, it really was his lucky day when he decided to purchase the two tickets, one of which made him a multi-millionaire overnight on Thursday (May 30).

The winning numbers were 18, 29, 34, 8, 4, 28 and 6 with a Powerball of 11. 

We say, ‘Good on ya, mate.’

Most of my career was spent in teaching including at one of the UK’s top private schools. I left London in 2000 and set up home in Wales raising four beautiful children. I enrolled at University where I studied Photography and film and gained a Degree and subsequently a Masters Degree. In 2014 I helped launch a new local newspaper and managed to get front and back page as well as 6 filler pages on a weekly basis. I saw that journalism was changing and was a pioneer of hyperlocal news in Wales. In 2017 I started one of the first 24/7 free independent news sites for Wales. Having taken that to a successful business model I was keen for a new challenge. Joining the company is exciting for me especially as it is a new role in Europe. I am keen to establish myself and help others to do the same.
