Wouldn´t it be fun if you could simply stop by and say that you are simply there to collect one million dollars?
Not everyone can do that but John Robinson did. In fact he went into West Virginia’s prize claim office in Charleston with his wife and there he told the receptionist:
“We thought we’d just stop in and pick up our million dollars.”
What a charismatic John. But to tell the truth people do not simply drop by the lottery office to collect their money. The first part, which is actually the most difficult part is actually winning the lottery first. Then claiming the prize is simply a result of it. And for John Robinson, the difficult task of beating the chances of winning the lottery was actually done. He won $1 million from May 16 Powerball draw. National lottery
John has been playing the lottery for a long time now and he thought that he would never win anything, in fact in all these years, he has only won $40. And he wasn´t thinking about even wanting to win one million. He was only hoping he could win $100,000. That was absolutely all he needed to pay off all of his debts and have a very debt-free life. But life gave him much more than he had ever expected. And he received ten times what he had wanted to receive in the first place. Now all of that is simply extra money which he can practically do whatever he wants to do with it. Life is good.
The big win came as a shock. Mainly because he had actually never won anything big, he never thought that it would be possible for him to win. But hope is never lost when you keep on trying.
“I was shocked,” he said. “I’d always heard of it happening to other people but never to me.”
John Robinson will finally be able to pay off all of his debts, go on a cruise and will also be able to welcome an earlier retirement. And all of this is simply a blessed surprise.
