Even Willis said that he simply "sat back and let it all soak in." It must be hard to believe for some people who may have had to work for everything that they had in life. Willis was able to win this much money through a combination of tradition and luck. He had been playing the same set of numbers for himself since he started the lotto sweepstakes in 2005.
