A British in-debt barman was in for the surprise of his life when he popped into a local shop to buy a bag of Skittles and a EuroMillions ticket.
Alex Best has been working as a barman in a local nightclub since leaving university last year, and had been struggling to pay off his £25,000 student debt. But after his recent visit to a local shop he won't have to worry about paying off that debt, or any other expenses for that matter. Alex plans on first paying off all of his student debt, and is also looking into buying himself an Aston Martin and his first house.
He told a local news station that, “I don’t often buy tickets so it was pure luck I went in for those sweets.”
He says that he plans on quitting his job at the nightclub, but he will still pursue his dream of a career in the music production business. He also plans on moving out of his parents house as soon as possible.
