When 27-year-old factory worker from Hereford, Matt Myles, woke up a millionaire. He knew he had to see the world. And he wasted no time in doing so.
Matt was working long and hard shifts as an electrical engineer in a factory when his EuroMillions ticket (he bought in the spur of the moment) got him a £1 million win. Before he could even adjust to his win he packed his bags for his around-the-world adventure.
Matt was punching the clock on another shift when he checked his ticket that he bought. He didn’t match the winning jackpot numbers and was about to throw the ticket in the bin, then he remembered that he also needed to check the all-important UK Millionaire Raffle. Then his whole life changed.
“PCC – The first three letters caught my eye,” he said. “I then checked the rest and couldn’t believe what I was seeing, they all matched.”
It didn’t take long for Matt to decide what to do next. By the very next day, he had quit his job, packed his bags and set off to see the world. “I love travelling,” he said, “and have some good friends in Indonesia who were still up when I found out I had won, so I FaceTimed them to tell them my news. They were all so excited for me they said I should fly out and join them. It was an invitation that I just couldn’t refuse – so the next day my brother and I as well as two of my best friends all decided to book flights and go!”
Matt quit his job, packed his bags and set off to see the world. Matt’s already been to Indonesia and Thailand, and he’s also been to Brazil for the World Cup. He spent £500,000 over 18 months in 22 countries, glugging champagne, buying designer clothes and bedding at least 150 women.
After being questioned, What would you do now? Matt replied: “I’ll probably come home to see my family over Christmas, “but other than that I have no idea when I’ll be back. Winning has changed my life overnight and from now on I really do feel like the world is my oyster!” Let the world be your oyster is GiantLotto’s FREE Powerball ticket give away.
