In receiving his prize, Mr. Roosevelt Daniel indicated that he will present the cake to his wife and gave the background to his choice of number for the winning ticket.
‘You see, I am a SEVENTH child and each of my children were born, SEVEN years apart and so SEVEN is my favourite number.
I asked for a ticket with the number seven and they did not have any and so I got one with the number 043, which actually adds up to seven,’ he explained.
The other winners were not immediately available to collect their prizes but the Single Parents group indicated that they would be personally delivered to them.
