An 80 year-old man from Tipton who scooped a £3.9 million lottery jackpot with his daughter says he always knew he would win.
Thomas Foden and his 60-year-old daughter, Irene Harper, claimed £3,909,990 in the UK's first quadruple rollover draw on Saturday (29 September).
The father and daughter spoke at a press conference at The Mount Hotel in Wolverhampton this morning (3 October) where Mr Foden said he always knew he would one day be a winner.
On asked why he came public with his win, Mr Foden said he 'wasn't brought up to tell lies.'
Mr Foden, who worked in the building trade for most of his life, has four grandchildren who he described as the "best grandchildren you can have".
Mrs Harper, who works as a full-time carer for her husband, said the money would make a huge difference to her two sons and their family.
Mrs Harper bought the lucky dip ticket at a Costcutter store, a shop she had never used before but decided to try because they had just got a new lottery machine.
She and her father have been playing the lottery since it started in 1994 and have won £10 occasionally.
Mrs Harper said she did not watch the National Lottery show as normal at the weekend and only looked at Teletext an hour or so later.
When she did she thought she had five numbers and had to call her son Simon who double-checked on his computer and then ran downstairs to tell her she had all six.
The pair said they might think about moving house in the future even though it is "early days" and were just trying to let the news sink in.
