A lorry driver in the United Kingdom, who drove more than 1500 kms during the weekend, was stopping at the services when he found out that he had won the National Lottery. His prize was £350k!
Marcin Jedrzejewski had been chatting to his mum in Poland while taking a break at a service station. While he was on the phone, he marked a notification of his Lottery application so checked what it was about. He could hardly believe his eyes to see that he had won a £350,000 top prize on Lotto HotPicks.

According to local media, Marcin, who works night shifts as a self-employed lorry driver delivering all over the UK, travelled another 399km across the South East, before calling to claim his prize on Monday, 8 June.
Former London bus driver Marcin, who re-trained as a lorry driver and moved to Rugby in 2013, said he will spend his winnings on a new home, according to Leamington Observer.
“After years of renting, I am going to buy a house in my new hometown of Rugby with no mortgage – this is what people dream of. And I will stay in the Rugby area due to my job and keep delivering across the UK during Covid-19 and beyond” – the lucky lorry driver said.
