The teenage lottery winner‘s parents who currently live on the dole in one of the finest council homes on a lavish estate in the best part of Hackney, London along with her younger sister and brother.
The newest millionaire will purchase a stylish and expensive house and remain living there, even planning a construction of a separate bathroom within her own suite.
The family’s current council home has but one toilet, so in the morning rush for the dole lines, disability and welfare benefits, there was always a large queue for the bathroom.
“It didn’t really sink in at first, I just thought I had won some money and then when I found out I rang my family and they were crying down the phone. It’s been a struggle and things like that, it has always been quite tight.”
“When I told my younger sister I had some ‘big news’ for her and to sit down, she said, You are pregnant? You’ve been shagging like a cat in heat all month with them Jamaican boys. I burst out laughing and said, ‘No, I’ve won the lottery’.”
The 1 in 14 million chance of winning has come at the right time for the teenage lottery winner, according to Stacey. Stacey also plans to buy her older sister Kirsty, 21, a home for her and her young son Alfie due to the fact that she’s recently been made redundant.
Leroy Fick, the lottery winner, is unapologetic and frankly spoke to reporters about his mooching off the gullible program. Leroy’s motto is – ‘If it’s free, it’s for me and morality is for philosophers.’
The same prevalent way of thinking has proven time and time again why people such as the big lottery winner can get over on the system. Our safety net is but a dream carried on the backs of hard working citizens who must pay taxes to support elite gamblers like Leroy Fick
Leroy, who is a Caucasian, told reports that he notified the agency upon becoming a big lottery winner, and was told that he could continue to collect the schmorgasbord of tax payer funded food each week for the rest of his life. Leroy is 54 and looks healthy as a shark.
It turns out that according to US poverty guidelines, winning the lottery and becoming the big lottery winnerbig lottery winner is considered a ‘liquid asset’ and not ‘personal income’ and thus doesn’t count when calculating a person’s poverty level. It’s no wonder that with rules like these that the entire world wants to run to the United States.
In another slap in the face for the American taxpayer, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) took almost 50% of the winnings in taxes as personal income despite the big lottery winner smirking right at them.
Tourist wins big, a cool $1 million on his birthday vacation in Philippines, calls it the best birthday gift he ever had. Mr. Joe decided to buy a lottery ticket after purchasing some beer at a shopping store next to his hotel.
Mr. Joe., an Australian citizen, purchased the ‘pick 6’ lottery tickets more out of habit than forethought. Back home, in Melbourne, Mr. Joe has been playing the weekly lottery as far back as he can remember. So even on vacation in Angel City Philippines, he couldn’t resist doing the same.
The day was Friday the 13th and Mr. Joe remembers joking with some friends at the local bar that the night before he had a dream that a tourist wins big , what they jokes was the number one prize in Philippines. He later forgot all about the lottery tickets as he was spending the full month partying and celebrating his 50th birthday.
When a few days later he ran across the tickets, he checked the numbers online only to discover that he won 43,017,157.80 in local currency – which is the equivalent of exactly 1 million US dollars.
There are no provisions in the Philippines gambling laws to forbid foreign residents or any language that a tourist wins big. A number of community activist groups are howling with rage, demanding changes.
Large groups of poor locals are hot mad over the foreigner’s win as well. The locals, who live on the equivalent of 50 cents daily, feel it is unfair for a rich foreign tourist to win so much money.
We wish Mr. Joe the best of luck getting outside Manila, and hope that tourists wins big again in what is considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world, alive with the million dollars. Online Online sports betting businesses are paying 50 to 1 odds if you think the lottery winner will not be able to get out of the country alive.
