Many people wait patiently in line so they can put in their lines for lottery games of their choice. Some of them actually win significant amounts. But one offshore worker won big without ever having to queue up. George Kinghorn from Peterhead won £1million in the EuroMillions Mega Friday draw on October 31.
He did not mind the email from the lottery thinking it was only for a few pounds. When he managed to check after coming off a vacation with his wife, he was pleasantly surprised at the amount.
He went back to work offshore shortly after, and has only returned to claim his prize. The couple don’t yet know how they will spend their money.
