Indian-origin by the name of Krishna Barri, who lives in Florida, U.S., is not someone who buys lottery tickets. But he decided to try once and luckily, he hit the jackpot. Guess how much? It is $14.5 million (Rs 1.4 crore or Rs 145 lakhs).

Krishna bought over ten tickets on December 1st, 2018 at the Zephyrhills Publix Liquor Store in Tampa, Florida.

“I started looking at the tickets, the first ticket, second ticket, third ticket. Oh my god, that’s it! It was an amazing feeling. I called my wife. I said, ‘We got the lottery!’ and she said, ‘Wow, are you kidding me?’ I said, ‘No. That’s true’,” he added.

Barri came to the US to study masters with the help of his brother-in-law 20 years ago. Having won a whopping lottery, he made up his mind to donate some money for the education of over 100 people in his native land.

“I came here to do my masters. I struggled. I did the part-time jobs. I worked for a bookstore, I worked at the Sun Dome, standing in the parking lot for 12 hours working for $6.25.” he added.

“He’s not here anymore to celebrate with me, but the trust is going to be in his name,” said Barri.

Krishna Barri said he also wants to buy a house and car for his family. He has also planned to set aside money for his children’s education.
