Chinese man wins $30 million lottery and chooses to conceal win from wife and child

Using government-run lotteries, a man from southern China won a 219 million yuan ($29.9 million) jackpot. Instead of doing what the average person would do and notifying the world that he had won the lotto, he chose to keep his lottery win a secret from his wife and child out of concern that it could encourage laziness in them. To disguise himself, he even wore an odd yellow cartoon suit.

The unnamed man went by himself to the lottery office in Nanning, in the province of Guangxi’s south, to pick up his winnings. In the pictures of him accepting the award, he was dressed in a bright yellow costume that covered his head. The man last spoke to the newspaper

I kept it a secret from my wife and child out of concern that they would become too relaxed and not put in any effort or work in the future.

He said he would donate 5 million yuan ($668K) to charity and that he wasn’t sure what to do with the remaining money. According to the Nanning Evening News, the man purchased the winning ticket from a store in Litang, a town of about 120,000 people located immediately east of the provincial capital of Nanning.

He travelled to the larger city the following day to present the winning ticket at the lottery’s headquarters after realising his good fortune.

He claimed, “I only stayed in a hotel because I was scared to go outside and lose the lottery ticket.

The central government of China holds lotteries to collect funds for social welfare and athletics. In Guangxi, players choose one number for the blue ball and six numbers for the red balls. The man claimed his winning numbers were 2, 15, 19, 26, 27, and 2—numbers he had been using for years.
