LONDON, November 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Life will never be the same for an Ecuadorian factory worker after he scooped $250,000 on the USA Mega Millions lottery draw with a ticket bought through WinTrillions.com.
Enrique Gonzalez, a 42-year-old from the province of Guayas, secured the life-changing lottery win after playing the game for just six months. He had been praying for a win to take his wife on vacation and help improve his finances, so the $250,000 windfall is beyond his wildest dreams.
"Just two weeks ago, I was out for lunch and my wife said to me how much $10,000 would change our lives for the better," said Enrique. "I kept checking my Mega Millions numbers, which I have been buying every week since last December on WinTrillions.com, and I kept praying that her dream would come true.
"When the WinTrillions team called, they asked if I had checked my email, but I had not. They told me I was a big winner, so I checked my inbox and there it was. I called my wife and at first she didn't believe me, but I kept insisting and then we both cried with joy."
WinTrillions.com arranged for Enrique and his wife to travel to the USA, where they were able to claim their US national lottery prize, arranging visas and tickets for the couple, who were still stunned by their good fortune.
"It's really wonderful that one of our South American customers has won big on the USA's national lottery," said Lucy Gold, spokesperson for WinTrillions.com. "When I met Enrique and his wife I was almost brought to tears by how grateful they are for their win. It was a huge pleasure to bring them to the USA so that they could claim their lottery win."
"The cost of living in Ecuador is much cheaper than in Europe and the USA, so when we've looked into it, $250,000 will actually be worth more than a million to Enrique and his family. This means that the win is genuinely life-changing for them."
With a record jackpot of $390 million set back in 2007, MegaMillions vies with US Powerball and EuroMillions for the title of the world's richest weekly lottery. With 35 US states participating in the twice-weekly draws, the jackpot prize on MegaMillions is never less than $12 million. Ticket sales average around $17 million for each draw, although this can increase to almost $150 million when there is a massive rollover jackpot.
The lucky lottery winners are now back in Ecuador with their winnings. Enrique and his wife are planning to pay off their debts and go on the trip that they could only dream of just a few weeks ago. He said: "I thank God and I thank WinTrillions.com for our good fortune. I did not win for six months and then this happened. You can never tell."
