The man who dressed as Luke’s Skywalker’s father was known simply as W.
Brown, bought his winning ticket earlier this month, and found out he had won while watching the live draw on TV.
Brown had bought the ticket at Di Endz Sports Bar in May Pen, a city in southern Jamaica.
Supreme Ventures Ltd. shared the news of Brown’s win on Twitter.
“May the Millions be with you! Congrats to our #Lotto winner, W. Brown!!! Brown aka Darth Vader, purchased his lucky numbers 08, 09, 10, 19, 27 and 30 from Di Endz Sports Bar in May Pen, Clarendon”
According to Stabroek News, Brown apparently always bought the same set of numbers and made a few changes here and there over the past 20 years. He always felt he would win the lottery and knew his life would change for the better.
“Life has always been very rough. I come from a poor family, sometimes I couldn’t attend school because my parents didn’t have it, but I told myself that God will help me one day so I can help my family,” the lottery winner said.
In regards to what he’s going to do with his winnings, Brown said that he wants to think things through first.
“I want to decide what is the best thing to do before spending anything. I need to decide what my goals are, but I know I want to own a bus, I love Coasters.”
Brown also plans on buying a home and investing some of his money as well.
