When some of us are knee-deep into assignments and playing beer-pong during our free-time in college, there are a few people who are not so fortunate. Some need to flip burgers at the local take-out to make ends meet.
One such individual is 19-year-old, Luke Brown, who had to enlist the help of his sister’s boyfriend to drive him to his job where he made a meagre $300 a week.
Should you meet him today, you will quickly notice his expensive watches, his latest designer purchases and of course, his fleet of cars which include one of the most sought-after objects on four wheels – a Ferrari.
Yes, he has become one of the youngest millionaires in history.
While he is busy making headlines and rewriting history at his young age, you can’t help but feel a bit of resentment towards this young cool cat. I am not saying that he doesn’t deserve it, but man, don’t we all wish we could wake up tomorrow morning being a millionaire.
Because, as Luke admits, that is exactly what happened.
‘I was on my lunch break at work playing around on my phone. I started searching for new games to play when I came across this online casino. They had a sign-up bonus where you receive 200 free spins for $20. To be honest, I hesitated at first, and then I just decided to go for it. I didn’t think anything was going to happen. But at spin number 77 my screen started flashing, and I realised something was going on. It said I had won the progressive Jackpot of $3.2 million.
At first, I didn’t believe it, so I called them, and they confirmed. But it only sank in the next morning when I realised I didn’t need to go to work that day, or ever again. It was surreal.’
He has since invested in properties and businesses and surprised his sister’s boyfriend with a new car. He also bought his parents a new house and employed his sister to run his busy schedule.
Incredible how this family’s life flipped 180 degrees after one small impulsive decision.
