Matt Myles won a million pounds more than two years ago then went on an 18 month spending spree that took him to parties around the world. After just 18 months he had already squandered £500,000 – half his winnings.
Good thing his mother sat him down and talked some sense into him. As a result, he made investments in a film, medical shares and some property. Now he is worth £1.1 million, about £100,000 more than just after his lotto win. He is very thankful to his mother Vivien, and says without her advice he would have lost it all by now.
