A gambler from Cheshire was celebrating today after being awarded “the Earth and all that’s in it” following an online game of pitch-and-toss.
“I foolishly selected the option for “gamble all my possessions”, and when the computer told me I’d lost I was shitting meself in case the wife found out, so I never breathed a word. Then the bailiffs appeared and told her that her Lladro collection now belonged to Paddy Power, and she chased me round the block for an unforgiving minute. After 60 seconds a voice boomed out from the heavens that I had won the Earth etc, which was a nice surprise”
Mr Foster does not intend to let the win change his life. “We’ve never been ones for keeping up with the Joneses, we have fairly simple tastes. I’ve given Scotland to my mate Barry who likes a spot of fishing, and my Mum has always been a keen royalist so I’ve given her Buckingham Palace. Otherwise it’s business as usual”.
