Roy, who is 77, had chosen the same Lotto numbers every week for two years, and had never won anything.

However spurred on by his son Jason’s two Health Lottery wins, Roy decided to give The Health Lottery a go, randomly selecting the numbers 2, 8, 25, 30 and 34.

It proved to be an inspired decision as on Saturday 16thNovember all five of Roy’s numbers came up and now he is a £100,000 better off.

Speaking about his winning moment, Roy said:

“I couldn’t believe my eyes. I nearly fainted. I checked the numbers again and again.”

Before the win, Roy admitted that life was a bit of a struggle for the family, and they had to save up each year so they could afford the heating in the winter.

However, after his Health Lottery windfall Roy explained how life won’t be so tough, and how he and his family can treat themselves this Christmas:

“We won’t have to worry about the bills now! We will treat the family this Christmas. It is a great time of year for this to happen.”
