P14 million Lotto winner broke after 3 months!


On April 2008 a man won the P14,125,032 in the Lotto 6/42 and then he lived the extravagant lifestyle and now back to poverty with debt.

Donnie Reyes (DR) now 47 told his full story to Yahoo OMG. He said that in 2004, before she died, her mother told him that she has been praying that soon he will win the Lotto jackpot.

After 4 years, he spent P70.00 using the “Lucky Pick” where the machine will randomly pick the combinations. Unable to watch that night’s draw (Tuesday). He came to work without any ideas.

Wednesday morning, his boss announced that there is already a winner of the draw. Though hopeful, he didn’t check his tickets. That night he went drinking sessions with his friends. He even peed on his wallet, drenching all the things inside in urine including the winning ticket.

Friday noon, while eating lunch DR looked at smelly tickets. Already memorized the Tuesday’s winning combination (09-15-18-23-28-40), he suddenly went crazy when he found out that he was the lucky winner. At 1 PM his boss accompany him to the PCSO office to claim the prize. But, the machine rejected the ticket as it can’t read due to it was wet before. Manually, the PCSO Officers gave him his winnings. At evening, he went home driving a new sports car.

He also bought a P4 million worth house and lot at the BF Homes Parañaque. Gave his sibling P50,000.00 each, P500,000 to his nephew for an apartment he wanted to build, gave some neighbors P5,000.00 to P50,000.00, gave P1,000.00 to P30,000.00 to his office mates, P100,000 to his boss, bought a car for his wife’s nephew to whom he ride along with every time he goes to work.

Not including those who come to their house who asked and borrow money from him to which he just gave away for free.

He recalled that estimatedly, he threw away P2 million was for “balato” only.

He was also engaged in gambling, **** fighting to be exact, womanizing and drinking sprees. He also noted that he will lost a minimum P100,000.00 in **** fighting alone.

There were also times that his wife is crying asking him to change his lifestyle, but he never listen. And, in just 3 months, he flew P14 million away, just like a dove.

Now, he is thinking to sell his house in Las Piñas to pay off debt almost amounting to P500,000.00 due to he underwent a heart surgery.

Why is he telling this? He told the writers of Yahoo Philippines that he wanted his story to make people realize to have a healthy lifestyle. Though he felt sorry for spending sprees, he wanted to inspire many.

    LOOOL. It's actually not uncommon. Yahoo News (for years, I'm sure you can find old articles on it) have many articles about how idiots blew their winnings.

    The reason usually is: most people that play lottery are poor folks who've never known (and usually are kinda naive) having significant amount of money that when they do, they don't know what to do with it.
  • ^ well the guy certainly knew what to do with it. Marami naman pobre pero wais. It usually boils down to stupidity.

    "Know what to do" is a figure speech. :glee:

    True, but significant amount of money changes everything. It's like snow blindness. And that's why 1 in 3 not only lose all their money in less than five years, but rather go bankrupt/broke/worse than they were before. A lot of it also are greedy 'relatives'.

    That's why the trick is when you win: 1. don't use the money right away, put it in the bank for a month and plan out ahead what you need to do to not only make more money but to properly initiate its use (luxury) 2. keep it a secret.

    You would have thought the wife was lucky because her husband won the lottery. Turns out the winning is a curse for her. Her husband turns into womanizer, wife crying. Its one thing to waste your winnings, its another to make your family suffer because you won.

  • May nabasa din ako sa yahoo news dati, 4 times nanalo sa US lottery. Yung una year 1990s pa, tapos yung 2nd year 2000s, tapos after ilang years nanalo ulit tapos nanalo na naman. Yung last winnings niya ayaw pa daw ibigay nung una kasi daw baka nandadaya na siya. Ang total ata ng napanalunan niya is mga $20million++. :glee:

    Ang chance daw na manalo ng 4 times ayon sa mga statistician ay a 1 in 18 septillion. 1:18000000000000000000000000 at dumadating lang ang swerteng ganun ng 1 in a quadrillion years. :insane::lol::bop:
