This week 16 winners of the WILLY WONKA GOLDEN TICKET™
second chance promotion enjoyed their four-day three-night all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas. While they were there, they got a chance to play the BILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE™
, and one of them came home a big winner!
Brian Harmon from Union City came home with a big smile on his face and an oversized check for $2 million. He played the BILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE
and found the GOLDEN TICKET
in the first two rounds for a prize of $500,000. When he moved on to the third and final round with a chance to multiply his prize, he found a 4X to win $2 million.
While he was on stage, his wife, Kim, was watching from the audience.
"She was crying she was so happy, and I was jumping up and down.To me that was a dream, and it's hard to process in your mind. Two million dollars!" Brian said.
He had been to Las Vegas one time before and won $1,200 playing a slot machine, but it's safe to say that this win takes the cake. Now he's ready to simply enjoy life.
"We want to invest the money and retire so we can enjoy life. I've been working since I was ten years old as a kid on a farm, so I'd like to sit back and relax for a while," he said.
Congratulations, Brian! Here's hoping for lots of rest and relaxation in the future!
