What would you do if you won the lottery? Take a big vacation? Buy a house? Pay off bills or travel the world? While many would opt for the finer things in life, a local Colorado man wants something simple.
After drawing the winning numbers 5-13-14-16-30-33, 69-year-old Bill S. of Carbondale said he wants to take a “train trip and buy a new vacuum.” With $3.8 million, he can take plenty of train trips and purchase the best, top-of-the-line vacuum.
“As he is retired, Bill is on a fixed budget, and with his cost of living increasing, he had to stop his beloved horseback riding and paragliding because of the cost. He plans to use his winnings to get back to those things he loves the most in the beautiful Colorado outdoors,” says the Colorado Lottery website.
Bill purchased the Colorado Lotto+ at the City Market at 905 Highway 133 in Carbondale; he walked out with the cash option of $1,948,019.
With his earnings, he plans to give 100 gift cards to his local City Market “because they are nice to him.”
