Simon Rustage has scored the top prize of £250,000 every year for the next 15 years on the scratchcard Mega Rich hard on the heels of a syndicate of his co-workers, who scooped a Lotto jackpot in January. Simon will receive a cheque for a cool quarter-of-a-million pounds every October from now until the year 2029. While he has no plans to quit his job as a stock handler, he’s already drawn up a shopping list that includes a new car and a season ticket to see his beloved Rugby League team, Warrington Wolves.
Simon says:’ It is such a lovely way to receive the money , it provides me with security and reassurance.’ It is like having a job with a £250,000 salary but not actually going into work. Wolves fans at Simon’s workplace, Norbert Dentressangle, are now two-thirds of the way to a National Lottery hat trick this year. In January a syndicate of fellow and former workers scooped a £1.7 million Lotto jackpot but it was six weeks before the Part Timers, also keen Warrington Wolves fans, discovered their good fortune after forgetting to check their ticket.
