"My eldest's reaction, he's a very sensible kid, he said, 'Dad, can I have my own room?'. I said, 'No problem, of course you can son'.

"My middle son said, 'Can I have a Tesla', and my daughter asked for a pink iPhone and she's going to get that."

Note that he doesn't say his middle son is going to get what he asked for. LOL

    If I won, not only would I not go public, I wouldn't even tell the children. A large win can have negative effects on the children. They may think, 'I don't have to worry about doing well at school, I'm going to inherit millions.' It would be much better to use the newfound financial freedom to give the children more opportunities, such as music lessons or additional tuition in maths.

      I don't believe this story

      This story in particular? Or do you think all jackpot stories are part of a psyop?
