After the hustle, he drove away in the black Land Rover Discovery, one of the high-end cars he bought after the huge windfall.

Karl was aged 23 when he won the sought-after lottery and invested the money in property, doubling it to £22 million (N12,780,871,400).

He used £1.5 million (N871,311,900) on a five-bedroom mansion with an expansive pond in the garden and another house in Vancouver.

The Sun reports that Karl also spent £3.5 million (N2,033,061,100) on holidays and expensive cars in the years that followed his win.

He then went ahead and married his girlfriend Nicole Roach ten years later, but the marriage seems to have hit a snag and forced him to move out of the house he built in Fylde.

Family Behind His Win

Karl has always attributed the lucky jackpot to his family as they pushed him into it.

He told the Sunday Mirror, as reported by Edinburgh Live.

“My mum and dad and brother helped pick some numbers then I went out with my pals. The next morning, I came downstairs to the kitchen and my mum said, ‘You’re looking at a lottery winner. I’ve got four numbers and got £96 or something."
