Guinea Grass villager is Lotto winner!

Angel Perez, a resident of Guinea Grass Village, is the latest Lotto winner. He’s been regular player for years and on Saturday night he finally hit the jackpot, which stood at fifty-two thousand five hundred dollars. But when News Five visited the Tropical Gaming office to meet the lucky winner today, we instead met his sister, Luisa Zetina. She told us that Perez could not make the trip to Belize City because he is a paraplegic. Perez lost the use of his legs when he was infected with Polio as baby and according to Zetina, his winnings will be a big financial help.

“Has he decided as yet what this money will be used for?”

Luisa Zetina

“To help himself because he is disabled and can’t work, that’s to help himself.”

“So how had he been taking care of himself before?”

Luisa Zetina

“He just helped himself with a small grocery store that he has. That’s the way he helps himself.”
