Golf fan scoops £4.7m in Lottery

Mark Page won Saturday's entire £4,771,402 jackpot
A golfing enthusiast from Dundee is celebrating after winning almost £5m on the National Lottery.
Mark Page said he intends to spend his winnings on improving his golf handicap and taking his family on a dream holiday to the Bahamas and Hawaii.

The 37-year-old had the sole winning ticket in Saturday's Lotto draw to scoop the entire £4,771,402 jackpot.

He works as a radio technician and lives in Dundee with his partner and their two teenage children.

Mr Page said he was "still in shock" after his numbers came up in Saturday's draw.

He plans to spend more time on the fairway, and splash out on a high-powered Audi RS4.

He and his partner Carol, 44, and their children Lisa, 19, and Graham, 16, celebrated their win with champagne at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews.

I couldn't believe it. To be honest, I am still in shock

Mr Page told how he had to double check the winning numbers before he claimed the jackpot.

He said: "We were watching TV on Saturday night when the adverts came on, so I decided to check my numbers.

"I took my ticket and checked the numbers on Teletext.

"When I saw that we had all six, I didn't know what to do so I looked at them again on Ceefax too.

"I couldn't believe it. To be honest, I am still in shock.

"I can't wait to start my new life on the fairways and become a scratch golfer."

The windfall makes Mr Page Dundee's second biggest Lotto winner to date. Elizabeth Harrop won £8.9m in October 2002.

Chatham, Kent.
I'm not worried mate, I've got a couple of euromillions tickets and the jackpot (£95m) has my name all over it.

Would be a dream come true for me as I could achive my dream of building a dedicated maternity/premature baby hospital in my local area.

That sort of money could change the lives and do so much good for a lot of people and a lot of very worthy causes.

Congrats to the guy pictured, you have to be in it to win it as they say!

What gets me about the lottery is that it is normally won by some senile old fossil who's worked as a dinner lady all their life. They win multi millions then announce "Oh yes, I'll still carry on working"

Let some other poor bugger have the job you greedy cow, they may need the money.

And when they're asked what they intend doing with their winnings they almost always reply "We'll be taking a holiday....................in Cleethorpes, we've been going there every year since we got married. With our winnings we can now buy our own caravan."
