Ken Salter said he couldn’t believe he won.
“I’m shocked, disbelief, this actually happened to me I can’t believe it,” he said.
Sue Salter also explained what they intend to spend the money on.
“We’re going to help our kids first and we’re definitely going to build a house all one floor because we hate stairs and Kens helping a few friends as well as his family and probably invest the rest,” she said.
