Trinidad: Student wins $10 million Lotto


A 20-year-old student has more than ten million reasons to be happy. The young man from east Trinidad was the Lotto Plus player who bought the winning jackpot ticket for the $10,245,770.54 prize when the Lotto Plus was drawn on March 6.

He played a quick pick with the winning numbers 16, 21, 22, 26, 32 and the powerball number two. The student said he received the shock of his life when he checked the National Lotteries Control Board (NLCB) website and realised he was the winner. He said he contained his excitement, telling only his father. The winner said in a statement: “(It) still feels as though it’s a dream, but (I’m) excited and nervous at the same time.”(Trinidad Express)…[+]
