The man who won Jamaica’s largest ever lottery jackpot today came forward to collect his $316 million prize.

The nation’s newest multi-millionaire is a 50-year-old married father of two who underwent major surgery 15 years ago due to cancer.

Speaking to The Gleaner/Power106 News Centre, he said he has had no further complications since the surgery and now plans to ensure that he and his family can live a decent life.

However, he says the first thing he will purchase is a brand new motor vehicle.

The lucky lottery winner purchased the winning numbers for the longest running jackpot just one hour and 15 minutes before the game draw.
