There are many outlandish tales of lottery winners all over the world. Some save and spend on necessities; others spend it all in one go and end up where they were financially. Then there are those who first splurge in style and then think of the essentials such as a house or a car. One Matt Myles falls in this last category of lottery winners.
Winning and spending in style
Matt Myles at 27 years of age has won the big million prize from the EuroMillions Raffle by National Lottery. He worked in a factory in Hereford, but he quit his job upon his winning the big sum. Saving himself from a life of on shift after another, the young winner decided to celebrate in style.
In less than three days after winning the jackpot, he was already on his way to Indonesia to join a group of friends. Since then he has been to one exciting location to another all over the world.
His brother has been his constant companion on most of his trips. He has also paid for some of his friends when they accompanied him to various exotic locations. So far he has been to many locations in south-east Asia, to Hong Kong, to Brazil to witness the soccer world cup excitement, Peru, Australia, Ibiza, Egypt and others. He also used three months to do some voluntary work in Africa. His travels after his £1 million lottery win have made him the topics of many news features.
That is not all
Matt Myles has also invested a part of winning sum and also used some funds to start a real estate business with his brother. He also hopes to enrol for a course to become an airline pilot, which doesn’t come as a surprise given his love of travelling. Showing his responsible side, it seems he has set himself a splurge limit of £100,000.
