Grandfather to spoil grand-kids with £72,000 lottery win!

Allen Austin has four grandchildren and is planning on spoiling them this Christmas, after winning £71,735 in October 25th’s National Lottery drawing. The retired plumber from Warrington, UK was on his way home from helping out at his family-owned truck stop café when he decided at the last minute to pull over and purchase the lucky ticket. Seeing how traffic was light, he thought it best to get the ticket sooner rather than later, and Mr. Austin hasn’t looked back since!

Allen’s wife of 44 years, Lynne, was the one to discover just how big the prize amount was. When checking the numbers at her local Spar, the shop keeper took her into a back office to calmly tell her of the win, and that she was to contact the local lottery office to confirm the numbers there. Calling her husband right away, Lynne could barely contain her excitement!

Along with lavish Christmas presents for their beloved grandchildren this holiday season, the happy couple plan on buying a caravan and touring the countryside, along with going to visit Allen’s brother, whom they haven’t seen in a long 15 years. This week’s biggest UK lottery jackpot is the UK EuroMillions , where £25 million is up for grabs!
