Two Lads Convince Everyone They Won The Lottery By Driving Around In A Sports Car

Two Lads Convince Everyone They Won The Lottery By Driving Around In A Sports Car

Lots of us have spent many an evening discussing what we'd do if we won the lottery. Usually, this takes place when there's a massive rollover and the conversation usually ends with: "What, you wouldn't give me any?"

"Oh no of course I would..."

"Fuck, you actually wouldn't you tight git."

But remember lads, if your mate ever wins the lottery - they can afford better friends than you. You're most likely very replaceable.


On Tuesday night, someone in Ireland won the Euromillions. The prize? $88.5 million (£75,459,047).


Today, it was revealed that the winning ticket was sold on the M1 northbound in Lusk, Co Dublin from an Applegreen petrol station, so two lads called Jamie and Ian decided to have some fun.


They showed up to the Applegreen in a Mclaren MP4 which generally costs over £170,000.

How?! Well, they own a sports car dealership called the Harford Motor Company in north Dublin. They got a license plate made up which read 'WINNER 88 5' (which correlates to how many Euros was won, get it?!) and also printed out a fake lottery ticket.


Check out their Snapchat story which they shared with Joe.co.uk here...


Well done, lads.

Despite the fact that none of us are currently celebrating a lottery win (or if you are, congratulations and please lend me a tenner), at least we're not this guy...

Lad's ex-girlfriend dumps him by text and then wins £61million


Dan White must've been fuming when his ex-girlfriend's family scooped £61million on the lottery.

The pair dated for two years, however, she called time on their relationship before she moved to university in Southampton.

Her mum, Sonia, had bought the ticket to celebrate beating cancer and decided to share the jackpot out between her family.


Dan's ex, Courtney Davies, 19, now has £12million quid in her bank and the student just can't stop crying about it. Naturally, his mates are giving him a pretty hard time over it, too.

"All my mates are savaging me about this - the first I knew of their win was my phone going nuts," he said.

"The boys were all sending me links and jokey Snapchats asking if I was gutted.

"One said: 'How much have you cried since you found out mate?'"

And, to make matters worse, Courtney's sister lives next door to him with her boyfriend so he'll no doubt have to watch them lapping it up now they're rolling in it.

But, he's not bitter...

"She called it off by text which I didn't think was the right thing to do but I wish her all the best even though I won't see any of the money!" he said.

He added: "She could give me a million a year for the two years I went out with her - I wouldn't say no to that."

Nice try...
