Set for Life win a ‘cherry on top’ for Mission Man


Philip Barkley won $675,000 playing Set for Life and says he loves the feeling of being a lottery winner.

“It feels warm and cozy like a security blanket is wrapped around me,” exclaimed Barkley. “I’m happy for me, and most of all, happy for my family.”

Barkley’s family has good reason to be happy too because the first thing he’ll do with his money is share it with them.

“I will give $50,000 to my daughter so she’s well taken care of,” smiled Barkley. “I’ll also give $10,000 each to my brother; sister; mother-in-law; and brother-in-law and his wife.”

Then he’ll pay off his mortgage, and start kicking back and enjoying life.

“It’s just a big relief to have financial independence. The rest is just a cherry on top!”
