A council worker from the Scottish town of Dumfries picked up his £585,956 winnings last week, from the (UK) National Lottery draw on Saturday, January, 4.
Sixty-year-old old Alfie Crosbie has been playing the UK lottery since it first began in 1994, but apart from a few small £10 wins his lottery playing habit has been never paid off until now.
Crosbie always uses the same numbers, but changed them last October when ticket prices increased to £2. Three of his number are taken from the ages of his grandchildren, the rest were picked at random.
Crosbie is now considering taking an early retirement and plans to buy a new car and a Celtic season ticket.
