Bachelor Joy

9 August 2000

UNITED KINGDOM –Aug. 9, 2000 – as reported by The Mirror: "A bachelor was Britain's most eligible man last night after scooping the weekend's pounds 13.8million lottery rollover.

"…The mystery man's pounds 13,861,061 jackpot - Britain's 10th largest win - will be the biggest by a single man who has gone public.

"…The previous highest jackpot won by a bachelor was pounds 12.3million picked up by shy cabinet maker David Ashcroft, 33, of Liverpool.

"…Biggest single winner was then married Mukhtar Mohidin, of Blackburn, Lancs, who pocketed pounds 17.8million in the nation's first rollover in 1994. Mukhtar, 44, changed his name after collecting the windfall to keep out of the spotlight. "
