A lucky winner by the name of Philip Dunning from Scotland had his dream come true after he won the £7,864,529 prize in the UK Lotto draw held on Saturday the 25th of April. Patience with lucky numbers clearly paid off for this passionate lotto player. Read further to discover the full story.
The winner went to work a day after his win. But not for the reason you might think: Philip and his partner Gina went to work to quit their jobs and retire early. Philip was very patient and trusting in his lucky numbers and you can see that this truly worked out for him nicely. There is a story about a player by the name of Sheela Nagels who used the same numbers for seven years before actually winning the $5 million Jackpot prize with her favourite lottery.
Philip, on the other hand, has been playing the lottery with the same numbers for even long. After 11 loyal years to playing the lotto, he finally hit the Jackpot, quite literally.
Philip bought his UK Lotto ticket from the Newtown post office in Bo’ness. He was nearing the start of his 4am shift the following day. He and his partner Gina, 45, also works at the food plant with him, and went to bed early to prepare for the long day ahead.
Philip’s home phone rang at around 9:30 pm, initially annoying him. He had no idea that that specific call would change his life forever. Gina answered the phone, it was her best friend Sandra Easton on the other end. Sandra knew the couple’s UK Lotto numbers.
Sandra said, “Turn the television on! You’ve won the lottery!” Any plans for a good sleep before work commenced the following day, were unrealistic.
The couple were worn out from their night without any sleep, but they showed up for their 4am shift at the Caledonia Produce food plant. Philip was continually checking his UK Lotto tickets to make sure he was correct and that he hadn’t misplaced it. Philip excitedly broke the news to his colleagues, and quit his job shortly after that.
The ecstatic UK Lotto winner says he’s always dreamed of winning such a terrific prize so he could spray champagne over everyone! When asked how the win made him feel, he replied, “It hasn’t sunken in yet. We can’t believe that this has happened to us. It’s a life-changing event and we just can’t wait to start enjoying ourselves and living without a care in the world.”
Their shopping list includes a new house, and upgrading their Vauxhall Astra. Philip spoke some very wise words on twitter:
“It can happen to me, it can happen to you.”
His winning lotto numbers in the UK Lotto draw were 4-11-27-28-30 with the bonus ball of 47.
