Colin Hopkins has just discovered just how lucky a ‘lucky dip’ can be. A lucky dip Euromillions ticket he had bought for the Sspetember 17 draw won £256,130.
The bricklayer had remained stunned for about an hour after he became aware of the win through an online check. He then waited for his daughter to come home before springing the joyful surprise.
Now the priority for Colin is buying a home of their own, so they can move out of their rented digs. He says it has always been his dream for his daughters to have a roof over their heads that they owned. They have, in fact, already began house hunting.
They also plan to splurge a little on shopping and maybe go on a holiday.
