How Midlands Lottery Winners Spend their Fortunes

There have been many big lottery winners in the Coventry and Warwickshire areas of England. This article looks at how players from this West Midlands region have spent windfalls of over £6m.

National Lottery research has shown that most West Midlands players would love to buy a seaside home with their winnings. Bill and Cath Mularkey, who won £1m three years ago went a bit further than the seaside and are now enjoying their dream move to the Caribbean. Perhaps your dreams will come true after buying a ticket from Lottery24?

First Time Lucky

Simon Waddup from Coventry was lucky enough to win £1m playing EuroMillions this June. Amazingly, it was the first time he’d played the lottery. Now he plans to use his winnings to build up a property portfolio. That’s something he’s wanted to do since he was a schoolboy. The 31-year-old electrician says he heard a voice telling him his luck was about to change and it did. He plays Win Games but not main draws and used the last £5 in his online account to buy the winning ticket.

A Real Lucky Dip

Last October saw Martin and Debbie Brandist from Nuneaton scoop £1m playing the UK Lotto. Their win came just days after celebrating their first wedding anniversary. Martin said he’d been playing the same numbers ever since the lottery began. However, it was a free lucky dip won in a previous draw that made them millionaires. Now they can afford that home in Lanzarote they wanted to buy.

Double Success

It was a double success for Gayle and Phillip Say when winning £1m playing Thunderball. Just like an Australian lottery player, they won the jackpot and then had a big shock. Gayle chose the same numbers for two lines, so ended up winning the jackpot twice. Now she’s retired from her job and enjoying their double success. The couple say the win isn’t for them but their family and that will include helping them buy their own homes.
