A man has excitedly opens lottery “News about your ticket” email only to find he has won £3.10
Matt Clark, who has a direct debit with the National Lottery, was excited to find an unread email notification on awakening.
“When I noticed I had an unread message from the National Lottery, I was already mentally going through my list of what I’d do first with my winnings”, he said.
“I’d planned my 3-week holiday to the Bahamas, bought a new flat in London, and hidden the rest in an offshore account.”
“Imagine my disappointment when I opened the email and realised I’d only won £3.10. I haven’t felt like that since I watched the last episode of Dexter.”
Despite the experience, Matt Clark will continue to buy a ticket every week.
“Although it is unlikely, there’s statistically a greater chance of me winning the lottery than paying off my tuition fees, and you’ve got to be in it to win it”
