Queensland man’s hilarious reaction after previous win

Earlier this month, a Cairns man won another incredible $20 million Powerball jackpot.

“Oh sh*t!” he screamed at The Lott officials when they called to inform him of his win.

“Oh Jesus Christ! Crikey! Are you sure this isn’t a joke? Has one of my friends put you up to this?”

The stunned man is planning to live his dream of buying a big house and live off the grid.

“I’ll be helping my family and friends out as well and making sure they’re more than comfortable,” he said.

“As soon as I get off the phone, I’m calling my parents and telling them they’ll be set up for the rest of their lives!

“I’m ending 2020 with $20 million – can you believe it?!”
