Single father Andrew Nabb from Bury in Greater Manchester, England is after an Audi 3 car after winning £247,513 in the 3 February EuroMillions draw but there’s one big problem.
The 33-year-old managed to match the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars and says he’s “over the moon” at his win. His winning numbers were 3, 4, 15, 46, 50 and the Lucky Star 5 missing the other Lucky Star 09.
Now he wants that dream car but hasn’t actually got a driving license. He has already passed his driving theory test but has been saving up for his lessons.However, £4.3m UK Lotto winner James Couper from Scotland decided to get a £16,000 Ford Focus.
The lucky winner says that “my kids are my world. I’ll do anything I can to give them a helping hand in my life, starting with the perfect home to grow up in.” He’s also planning a family holiday to Tenerife with his two sons and daughter. $50,000 Powerball winner Kien Troung from Maryland, USA, paid for his mother to go on holiday. Canadian Leslie Ritchie is off to the Bahamas after her $54,390.40 Lotto 6/49 win.
Nabb works as a steel fitter but has been in and out of work for the past year. He described his win as life changing for both himself and his family. His winning EuroMillions ticket was bought from a shop in Bury.
At the weekend, he was doing his chores and then remembered he hadn’t checked his EuroMillions ticket. The cashier checked it for him and when the machine started making some noise he was told to contact Camelot.
Initially he thought there had been a mistake but rushed home to make that phone call. He couldn’t believe it when told that his EuroMillions ticket was worth nearly £250,000 and had to ask the Camelot employee to keep repeating the news. Andrew admits he didn’t know “whether to scream with excitement or burst into tears. It just seemed so surreal.” Tony Dunn from Iowa, USA, needed a fair bit of convincing after his $100,000 Holiday Mega Crossword scratch card windfall. The anonymous winner of a €500,000 EuroMillions Plus prize broke down in tears when finding out about their win.
Despite his EuroMillions win, Nabb has no intention of stopping playing. “I’ve won once, I can win again,” he added. “Lightning can strike twice.”
