Winning a major lottery prize provides you with an opportunity to do anything you set your mind to – in Matt Evans’ case it was watching high profile sporting events around the world. The lucky man who became £2.600.000 richer about a year ago decided to spend a portion of his fortune on making his dreams come true, and Mega Millions could help you do the same thing.
Evans scooped the UK’s Lotto prize last July and said he plans to buy an estate, a Ferrari and some Royal Mail shares. The fortunate man, who’s worked as a postman for eight years, added he will use some of the money to take his parents to Wimbledon final and the Grand Prix in Monaco, and buy tickets for sporting events in New Zealand and Australia.
“I’ve always loved watching sport and this win means that as well as looking after my family, I can travel the world, watching my teams play. There are lots of trips on my wish list,” said Evans after he collected £2.600.000 last year.
He’s really proving to be a man of his word, because it was reported he has splashed out a lot of cash travelling the globe to witness high profile games. He regularly visits the U.S. in order to cheer on American football’s Washington Redskins, ice hockey side the Washington Capitals and baseball’s Baltimore Orioles. He also booked the seats to all his favourite events – from the Rio Olympics and the Monaco Grand Prix, to Wimbledon and the upcoming Euro 2016 finals.
“I know I’m very lucky – I’m living the dream of so many blokes. I always said if I won the lottery I’d spend it on following my favourite teams,” explained Evans.
