Roach hits $1.5 m jackpot
Deighton Roach was playing the lottery since its inception in 2005.
Fifteen years later he has over one million reasons to smile as he collected a cheque for $1 567 000, becoming the first Mega 6 winner for the year.
Sixty-nine-year-old Roach bought his ticket from retail agent F&F Services at Inchcape, Wellhouse, St Philip.
“I checked the numbers and I realised I had won the Mega 6 jackpot,” he said.
Roach, a retired hotel worker, will be paying off his debts with some of the winnings, while his six children will get “something tangible”. (JS)
