Nguyen Quoc Thai and his wife warmly welcome reporters in the villa he built on the floor of the family house 4 that he lived for more than 20 years.
Meeting the first "billionaire Vietlott" after two years, it is not difficult to realize that he has gained a lot of weight, other than the appearance when he received the prize. VND 92 billion in 10/2016.
After he called the maid to tea, he spoke two years ago about family changes of the & # 39; historical & # 39; date.
Not a big hit and leave work
– How did your life and your family change when you received your bonus? VND82 billion after tax?
Before I get the same number as the pig slaughter on the market, I sometimes work new until 1-2 hours all night. Now I am just at home gardening, raising animals, enjoying old age. Life is much better.
At the time of winning I weighed 68 kg, now up to 79 kg. My children now also open the store with noodles, baked rolls … Life, money, but still I have to work every day.
I still recommend my career, I have to do, not a big lottery and I do not. How much money is spent. At that moment my wife and I became familiar with them, so we continue to do the same. Very well known, who is not waiting now, has to go to the tree nursery, raise fish, grow pigs.
He used more money VND82 billion how are you
Actually the first 2-3 months, I put everything in the bank, then the new gap to buy the children and then buy the land.
I spend a lot of money buying a strip of land at my house and building 20-30 rooms and 2 houses for rent. The whole strip of land is mine.

I want to buy land to build a house, because if you send a lot of money to the month, you also receive interest, but the money died. Buy land and build a house, rent space, the room is large, then 3 million / month, at least 800,000 / month, but selling land is still profitable.
I have also built a house for every child, now they are all alone.
I bring the rest to the bank. The total income from bank interest and rental home is now around 100 million dong / month. The cost of eating, buying a motor, I use interest every month.
I'm just afraid of bullying in the distance
– When he won, many people came to the house to ask for alms. How long does that take?
Lasted more than 2 months. At that time I gave a lot, in total more places VND2 billion. Every household brought me 500,000 VND. I also do charity here and the poor districts in the province, every district that's hard for me.
– Has your family life been affected by the influx of people?
Nothing heavy. People are poor and beg for money, but the people here are good, I live here for a long time, I know.
The first few days are not at home because people are overcrowded. They were closed from the market to the door, the car could not enter. At that time 300-500 people came to us every day, so we had to ask the police to keep the house.
Even the next morning when we heard that we were winning big, they stopped even if I had not received any money, the house would only have a bag of VND 100,000.
A new time to take me here is too messy, Lam Dong is temporary. I told the children at home to give money to people and then go home almost a month later. By the time I get back to normal, the day demands a little less than a dozen people for money, much less than before. Now it's over.

I am only afraid of the villagers from afar, but here I am worried, I am the slaughter of pigs, then there is no ordinary person. I just do not dare to sleep because the house is not sure if people are too busy.
– Are you bothering the bully?
– There are also people who step in, but there is no problem too big, just to ask for money. They ask for kindness, I still give it.
Then the group threw away from Cần Thơ for money. I give a few hundred thousand to two million that they carry.
People say I was hired 10 billion to fake a song
– In 2016, the whole family is the winner of the news VND 92 billion?
The number of telephones I know touched, but I still see things vague and unbelievable. No one dared to believe it all night, went out and searched for a way to contact the lottery agent to receive the prize.
Contact us and receive the money that we believe. At that time, 9-10 people seized a car with 16 seats to visit Vinh Long lottery agents. Lottery agent agents escort the bonus will transfer to the bill and then hired me the hotel is also very '& # 39; dates & # 39 ;, also invited us to eat.
My life also contained 500-700 million or silver billion VND 92 billion It is really too big, not very familiar at first. Luckily I deposited on the bench and slowly got a new job, so I saw it normally. Hours per year with 2-VND 3 billion let's not draw much.
In general, things are coming slowly, so that I can also receive.
– How did his neighbors react when he heard his victory?
Both Tra Vinh and Vinh Long know nobody, I was very well communicated back then. When the new hit came, someone said that the company included a price 10 billion to receive a lottery winner.
Many people say that winning this lottery is how you can get money, they say this is a lottery. By the time I receive money to buy rice to believe.

– So why do you wear a mask when you receive a prize?
At that moment, I do not want the social issues as black of Ho Chi Minh City or Vinh Long to know them, but my name with my face does not know this city.
– How much can you share your family home?
The whole building and furniture costs about VND 4 billion. By winning the new year, my house was built.
– Have you and your family traveled?
Go 3, 4 seats and then go abroad. Go to Thailand, Cambodia, China and then South Korea. Against this new year, the two go to America.
