Retiree Chris Bateson only started playing the Health Lottery after he became frustrated by the price hikes imposed by rival National Lottery. As he had been playing the same six number combination all along, he just removed one number and starting playing the five-number Health Lottery. It is a decision which has paid big dividends – £100,000 worth of them to be exact.
As he is retired with no mortgage on his home, he plans to invest part of the money on expanding a colony of bees he has been keeping as a hobby. He and his wife also plan to give to charity and visit their son who now lives in Canada.
