Aberdeen couple scoop Lotto £51K ‘Grand Prix’
A Formula 1-loving couple from Aberdeen are set to shift their lifestyle up a gear after winning £51,355 on Lotto.
Lisa Forgie and her fiancé, Neil Robertson, both have jobs that revolve around cars – Lisa is a taxi firm manager while Neil is a taxi driver – but Lisa especially revs up her passion for petrol and pistons by following the thrills and spills of Formula 1 in her spare time.
Lisa said, “I have been to lots of Grand Prix races, including Belgium and the British Grand Prix at Silverstone but my dream is to go to Brazil. I’ll definitely think about planning a trip there now I’ve won!”
Lisa and Neil are due to be married in 2017 and, ironically, the couple met while both working at a wedding exhibition. However, despite now having enough cash to shift her wedding plans up a gear or two Lisa is looking further into the future
“I did think about spending some of the winnings on the wedding but what I already have planned is my ideal big day. We will be putting money towards a deposit on a new house with a garden for our son as he grows up.”
Lisa played and won online via www.national-lottery.co.uk and she’s looking to take the winners chequered flag again very soon:
“I’ll still keep playing. In fact, after I found out I’d won I logged on and put my numbers on for the Saturday draw!”

$1 million lottery winner paying off mortgage first
A $1 million lottery winner from Richmond was so calm, even her husband and daughter didn’t believe her at first.
Lisa Tsang kept her cool after realizing she had scooped $1 million in the Lotto 6/49 Guaranteed Prize draw on Aug. 22.
“When I realized I had won, I was in shock and disbelief, but remained very calm,” Tsang recalled, after checking her numbers on bclc.com.
The frequent Lotto 6/49 player then managed to maintain her poker face in front of her husband and daughter after telling them she was B.C.’s newest millionaire.
“I was really excited to share the news with my husband, who didn’t believe me at first,” Tsang said.
“I told my daughter I was a winner too, but like my husband, (she) was very skeptical.”
The Richmond winner said her family finally believed her once she showed them her winning ticket.
Tsang purchased her ticket at the Shoppers Drug Mart in Richmond’s Garden City Centre and claimed her prize using BCLC’s alternate prize-claim process.
She says her first priority for her win is to pay off her mortgage.
“A million dollars is a lot of money,” she said. “I will have more financial freedom.”A $1 million lottery winner from Richmond was so calm, even her husband and daughter didn’t believe her at first.
