Care home worker banks jackpot!
Lotto Rollover jackpot winner
Ron Elliott was beginning to think that his local shop was unlucky before he banked the Lotto Rollover jackpot on Saturday 2nd November. Instead he watched his Lucky Dip numbers appear live on TV and is now celebrating banking £7,959,312.
Ron, a full time care home assistant, buys his ticket before 6am each Saturday morning on his way to work, and often has to wait while his retailer switches on his National Lottery terminal.
He ended Saturday in front of his TV watching his numbers appear on The National Lottery Live on BBC1. He said, "If I'm not working I'll watch the show and was sat there ticket in hand as the first three numbers came out. I thought that winning £25 was a change and fantastic news. Then I had the fourth and fifth and thought I might get a couple of grand."
Waiting on the sixth ball, Ron thought, "I can't see 49 coming out, and then it did and my god I had all six."
Ron called Camelot immediately to register his claim but his win amount couldn't be confirmed until the draw was verified. He remained relaxed and put the ticket in his pocket only checking it again on Sunday morning.
Despite seeing that there was only one winner of the huge jackpot on Sunday morning, Ron still got up and went to work. He was called by Camelot during his shift to have the win confirmed, prior to ticket validation, but still carried on working at the care home.
Ron plans to carry on working in a job he loves. He will however be treating himself to further breaks in Indonesia, a regular holiday favourite across the last few years, and is already arranging to pay off his son's mortgage. He plans to move to a house from the maisonette he currently lives in.
The ticket was purchased in Sutherland News, Sutherland House Sutton - which can now definitely be considered lucky. The winning numbers in the draw on Saturday 2nd November were 10, 28, 32, 36, 37 and the final ball drawn was 49.
