“First of all I’m very grateful for her and I’m pretty happy that she won it. She’s not doing well health-wise so this money could that would be the first aspect of where we spend this money to take of her in that aspect. And then the house she’s living in needs some repairs to so I guess you can see this all smiles is not for me but especially for her.”

“So you’d say that somebody very deserving is the winner of this jackpot?”

Hilberto Muschamp

“Oh definitely because I always tell her because I used to go over and see her with all her grandkids filling out this MegaBingo tickets at night and I say ‘oh you’ll never win’ but she’ll say ‘don’t worry I’ll be persistent and I’ll get it’. So when she called me last night I was harvesting shrimp and she said she won and I said ‘really?’, I didn’t believe at first and she said ‘yea I won’ and she asked me to be here for her today yuh know and am glad to be here to represent her.

“The win’s totally unexpected though?”

Hilberto Muschamp

“Ahh definitely especially when cause this morning when I was leaving I said ‘you probably win a hundred and thirty eight but you subtract the two thousand from all the tickets you’ve been buying over the time suh’ But you know you buy and the only way you’ll know if you win if you get in it and she was confident enough to keep trying and trying and it’s finally here.”

Andrea Polanco

“So you’re saying, she is a regular player of the Mega Bingo Game?”

Hilberto Muschamp

“I don’t think they have more supporter than she does. She’s always there. It’s also fun for the family yuh know it’s always fun to go there and see the grandkids filling out their boards. Especially she has a little granddaughter, I didn’t even know she knows how to mark the boards and she was there helping to mark the boards and all that. So it also helps for them to have a family moment.”
