Eton College employee John Taylor knew what he wanted to do when he found he had £9.70 in his online lotto account – play some more. That decision is now set to make life a lot easier for him and his wife Jenny.
Soon after the the draw he received an email advising of a £137,945.40 win. The first thing he did was call his wife, and then both of them had the hardest time completing their work shifts as normal.
Now the happy couple are planning a trip to New Zealand where the wife has some relatives, and perhaps watching the English team play in the Ashes in Australia.
