Well-known comedian Akmal Saleh says he won't be working if he won the $40 million jackpot.
"You know the people I really resent the most? The people that win the Lotto and say it's not going to change me, I'm going to go back to work tomorrow...You're an idiot, you should have that money taken away from you and fined. People who say that should not have that money, they should give it to me and you can go back to work," Akmal said.
45-year-old Pedro Quezada won $152 million US in New Jersey and he says his first purchase will be a car.

According to the TattsLotto office most winners spend their money on paying off the house, investments, holidays, new cars and helping out their families.
"If you don't like your family, that's even more pleasurable, you can say I've got the money you losers and you're not getting nothing," Akmal said.
"The other thing that's really interesting is when you hear stories following people who have won millions, the number of times they've gambled it away or just are beset upon by seventh cousins twice removed who you've never heard of, friends with horrible illnesses, business problems. I get the impression a lot of people who win the big ones aren't necessarily happy for life," Spencer said.
