A warehouse worker from Warrington claimed the top prize on a UK National Lottery "Mega Rich" scratchcard on Wednesday and then headed back to work.
With a cost of £10 per ticket, Mega Rich is one of the lottery's more expensive games, but it was £10-well-spent for 47-year-old Simon Rustage because he will now receive £250,000 each year for the next 15 years. That's a huge improvement on his present income, but Routledge states he has no plans to buy a new home or take an early retirement."
"I'm really happy and as long as my kids are taken care of, that's good enough for me. That's what really matters," he said.
