Despite his multi-million prize he won’t give up his day job at the Break Time convenience store. The 29-year old men has Disney World plans.
Jackie Maxwell, general manager of the convenience store chain, was actually excited with the massive jackpot. Maxwell is obviously pleased for the store clerk but the news is also a great incentive for other Powerball players. The manager hopes that the jackpot encourages players to buy more jackpot tickets at the lucky convenience store.
The 29-year old tattooed father of three had been playing Powerball for quite some time. He only managed to win approximately €60. The jackpot doesn’t completely shake up his life as he probably continues his job at the Break Time store. The store clerk commented that he plans to spend more time with his children. Shaw probably takes payments instead of the lump sum.

Shaw’s girlfriend could not believe the news when he informed her about his winnings. The multi-million prize enables Shaw to give his children more toys. Due to his poor pay he wasn’t able to buy his kids a lot of toys. With any luck the malediction will not strike the admirable millionaire.
