Double lottery winner says: "It's not that special"

Watch George Traykov answer questions from journalists who appear much more excited about his win than he does.

A man who won the lottery twice has appeared distinctly underwhelmed by his success. At a press conference, George Traykov, who's from Ilford, said he was not "that bothered" by winning £160,000 on the Euromillions, on top of a previous £1 million win.

Mr Traykov, who never picks his own numbers and always plays the lucky dip, was so laid back about his second big money win that he didn't even claim it until two months after the prize draw in November.

Mr Traykov, who's originally from Bulgaria, bought his winning ticket at a Tesco store in Barking and could maybe one day make it a hat-trick of wins as he said he planned to carry on playing.
