A MECHANIC who landed a whopping £108million in a EuroMillions jackpot has revealed how he knew he would win big – before he’d even bought a ticket.
Neil Trotter scooped one of the biggest EuroMillion wins in history, but he always knew he’d end up a rich.
The Surrey man says he’d often tell his dad that one day he’d have a house with a lake.
Then, in the hours before he became £107.9m richer, he told his workmate he’d be winning big that night, and he told staff at his dad’s office that “this time tomorrow” he’d be a millionaire.
And, he was right.
Neil recalled of his eerie prediction: “Being a Trotter, I knew I’d be a millionaire one day – and I somehow knew I’d win the Lottery.
“I used to tell my dad I’d have a house with a lake, and he’d say, ‘In your dreams, son!’.
“I had such a strong feeling on the Friday that I’d win, I told the secretary at work.
“Winning allowed me to go back to my first love – racing. And I‘ve the house with a lake.”
The racecar fanatic traded in his Ford Focus for the likes of a Jaguar and Porsche when he won his fortune.
And he bought a Grade II-listed mansion with its own lake set in 400 acres of land.
Neil won big in 2014, but has told of how his life is “quite boring”.
He said: “Going from having to work to not having to work any more was quite a strange thing to adjust to.
“I soon found out that sitting at home watching telly all day was quite boring.”
He also admitted he’s “struggled” to cope with the wealth.
Neil said: “It’s been a bit of a struggle, adjusting to having so much money but this is the dream, it was my dream to buy a big house with some land and a lake.
“I’ve always worked all my life so going from having to work to not having to work anymore was quite a strange thing to adjust to.”
