It’s the worse feeling in the world to realise you have run out of – or almost run out of – time to put on your usual lottery numbers. For one lucky lottery player however fate may have intervened as that just in time lucky dip lottery ticket was worth almost£3 million!
Roger Gillespie had forgotten all about the lottery on March 17th UK Lotto draw and it looked as though he was going to miss his chance at the midweek lottery jackpot. However with two minutes to spare Mr Gillespie remembered and purchased a lucky dip lotto ticket.
After the draw, Mr Gillespie checked his lottery ticket and was surprised to see he had matched five numbers in the draw. However, after closer inspection of the ticket by his daughter it became clear that Mr Gillespie was the midweek UK Lotto jackpot winner.
The UK Lotto jackpot came in at £2.96 million and Mr Gillespie is now in the market for some spending. The 59 year-old has a new lease of life after the win and currently has his modest cottage on the market. He intends to treat his family with the winnings and no doubt buy himself a few treats in the process.
