Lottery winner pockets hundreds of thousands of pounds but doesn't tell his wife

Andy has handed out more than £2 billion in lottery winnings during his 17 years in the role.

During his nearly two decades in the lottery business, he witnessed the strain that wealth can put on relationships.

And the lottery expert has now revealed how one lottery winner decided to leave his windfall in limbo.

After bagging a few hundred thousand pounds, he opted to take the news away from his wife for three decades.

When Andy visited the winner's house, the man said he had no intention of telling her about the win.

Andy said: “He told me, 'We're very happy, but ours money got divorced; it's just the way we work.' “

The man also admitted that the pair did not even know how much the other earned.

Andy still doesn't know if the winner ever told his wife about his life-changing fortune.

But despite the major blunders, the lotto pro still believes he has a fascinating job.

He also said that women tend to handle winning jackpots better than men.

Andy explained: “Women are likely to be more open about their emotions, so they are more likely to come to terms with them.”

Although young winners are thought to be big spenders, he says those under 30 are more financially sensible than people think.

The lotto advisor said: “They are very financially cautious and enabled.”

It comes as a retired couple revealed how they almost missed out on a whopping £57 million after their lottery ticket was torn in half.

Fred73, and his wife Lesley Higgans, 63, were stunned when they realized they had won the Euromillions jackpot.

Meanwhile, a woman who thought she was getting help with her debts from a lottery-winning couple was outraged after discovering it was a cruel scam perpetrated by an imposter.

Dympna McKenna, 47, thought she was chatting to Richard and Debbie Nuttall on Facebook.

Andy's smartest spenders

LOTTO employee Andy Carter calls newly made millionaires to advise them on how to spend their money.

The National Lottery winner's senior advisor revealed the people who know how to best manage their fortunes.

  • Women can handle it best. He said women “come to terms with it more quickly” because they are more open with their emotions.
  • Young people are smart savers. Young people under thirty are very 'financially cautious and enabled'.
  • Family and friends are the best advisors. People who talk about their wealth with family and friends handle it best, Andy said.
