It seems like lorry drivers are the luckiest lottery players. A lorry driver from Watford has recently won £1 million with the Euromillions lotto. Clearly a sports fanatic, Watford will now have more time to dedicate to sports now that he has been blessed with having the financial security. This is his story!
The lucky Euromillions lottery winner quit his job the same day he discovered his win. The winner’s name is Simon Beach, and he is really looking forward to having more time to spend on the golf course. Simon’s winning Euromillions ticket was bought for Friday’s draw last week. The actual date of the draw was the 7th of March, 2016.
It looks like positive thinking was the key for this winner because the 49-year-old has always believed he would be a lottery winner. Not only did he win £1 million, but he also won an exotic getaway to South Africa for a safari. Now, that’s the life!
“I was making myself a cup of coffee on Saturday morning when I discovered I’d won the Euromillions Millionaire Maker Raffle,” explained Simon with a big smile on his face.
He had a few more things to add: “I’d like to say I couldn’t believe it, but actually, I’ve been expecting this win for 21 years, right since the first lottery draw took place. I said as much when I rang Camelot to confirm the win.”
The lucky winner lives with his parents in Bushey Mill lane and bought his winning Euromillions ticket in North Bushey Store. He said that one of the first people he shared the amazing news with, was his good friend who lives in Las Vegas!
Because of the time zone differences, Simon sent his friend a funny text message: “By the time you wake up, Simon is already a millionaire!”
Simon is the sole carer for his frail elderly parents. He opted for the cash lump-sum option of £1,054,720. He quit his job as an HGV lorry driver because he was struggling to keep his long-distance driving job and caring for his parents at the same time. Both of them have extensive health problems. It is quite a heart-breaking situation for Simon.
“My mum has had four strokes while my dad is on dialysis. He’s in and out of the hospital a lot. The last few years have been really tough trying to keep the home together, bring in an income, and keep on top of mom and dad’s health with my long hours being away at work," explained Simon.
Euromillions lotto gave Simon the break he deserved! “With thanks to a little combination of numbers, that has all changed and things can get a little easier,” he said.
Simon celebrated his Euromillions victory yesterday at Vicarage Road yesterday. Simon said he’s been looking forward to attending many more games. He said that his father used to take him to see Watford play in 1967 when he was only four months old!
“I’ve spent many happy hours following them at home and away with work. With my parents’ deteriorating health, it’s been harder to go to games with them,” he said.
For Simon, being able to pay for the right kind of care for his parents and not having to worry about work has been the ultimate blessing for him. He intends to spend plenty of time cheering his favourite team on when he’s not busy golfing!
If Simon could make his dreams come true with Euromillions, then so can you!
The jackpot is currently on €41 million.
