A couple from Abernathy, Texas have been very fortunate in winning a jackpot worth $177 million with Mega Millions. Their son Rodrigo Cantu, spoke about their win on their behalf. His dad has been playing the Texas lottery since it began, and they'll most likely continue even after this win as its difficult to break a habit that's gone on for 30 years, he once even purchased 180 tickets at once and won nothing!"It's very daunting, it’s a lot of money. You have to make sure everything is right, down to security for my parents once this gets out". They've opted to receive their prize money as a lump sum, which brings $177,000,000 down to $72,901,274 and their first plan is to use some of this money to build two new churches, one in Post and one in Abernathy. "They deserve it because if anyone ever needed anything, they would try to give it to them, or find a way to give it to them" their niece stated. Cantu believes it'll be a long time before the news ever sinks in for his mother as they've never owned a credit card, or written a check and have only recently set up a debit card. The couple are 71, and 68, and now have finally retired, however his father is still not used to not waking up very early in the morning. Recently getting up at 5:30am thinking he had work. Turner, their niece said "They've done their share of traveling. It's not like they never did anything, but they did stuff on a regular budget and now they actually have money to splurge. They lived life, but now they can actually live life".
