The man plans to spend part of the money on his family.
A resident of the English city of Coventry, West Milands County, bought a winning lottery ticket after a voice in his head advised him to do it, writes searchnews.info.
On May 19, 31-year-old electrician Simon Waddap went shopping. He claims that a voice in his head advised him to buy a lottery ticket and participate in the draw. The Briton bought online two lottery tickets for 2.5 pounds (215 rubles). Before that, he had never participated in major draws and limited himself to buying tickets for an instant lottery.
On the morning of May 20, he checked his phone and saw that he had received a message from the National Lottery. It turned out that he hit the million pound jackpot. To verify the reliability of the win, Waddap called the hotline.
“The first person I told about the win was my ten-year-old daughter. She asked if she could now get a passport, bearing in mind that she had never been abroad. Then I called my mother and sister, and they did not believe me, ”the winner said.
Waddap hopes that the prize will allow him to realize his childhood dream and become a reenactor of old houses – buy old real estate, repair it and sell it. He spent years working on construction sites and studying various industries.
