$7.935.000 is just enough money to turn all off your dreams into reality, and that’s exactly what one man from St. Albert intends to do after scooping this impressive prize. He’ll use his new-found fortune to start knocking things off his old bucket list.
Raymond Mussell became a jackpot winner on December 15th when he correctly matched the winning Lotto 649 numbers 11, 12, 22, 36, 46 and 47. He was one of two players who correctly guessed the entire winning line that night, and walked away $7.935.000 richer.
Mussell has a whole new perspective on life after this astonishing victory, but knows how important it is to stay grounded and find a way to put this money to some good use.
“I’ve always thought that people buy lottery tickets because there’s this chance you might be the next big winner. I don’t feel any different as a person, but I’ve been given a really special opportunity. I need to be responsible when it comes to spending that opportunity,” said Mussell.
He could easily go out and buy anything he wants with this incredible windfall, but $7.935.000 winner doesn’t intend to go crazy after his victory. He’ll continue to live a sustainable life with his family, and transform a couple of his dreams into reality along the way.
“There are a few things I’m looking forward to ticking off the old bucket list. I’ve been recording music for years, and I’m now recording my second album. I’d like to put some money toward marketing the album and see where that takes me,” explained the lucky man.
