When someone wins a million-dollar jackpot prize, one of their first announcements is that they will quit their day job – but that is not the case for the most recent Powerball winner. 34-year-old Trevor from Waikato is a grocery store clerk, and he plans on staying in his position despite winning a $26 million lottery jackpot.
Trevor is this week’s winner of the Powerball jackpot, which has been climbing over the course of the past few weeks. As such, it is one of the biggest jackpots that the NZ Lottery has ever paid out. Despite winning this record-breaking lottery jackpot, Trevor does not want to make any changes to his current career.
“Everything will go on the way it is,” says Trevor. “It’s just a lot easier.”
He stated that he has recently completely a management course for his job. So, he is more interested in working towards a promotion at work rather than quitting his job completely. He has made a few small plans for his money, however; they include purchasing a new car and home as well as getting involved in motor sports.
