London: A British man who won the lottery twice, scooping over £1.6 million in total, says that he was not “that bothered” by the wins and wanted more.
George Traykov, 45, has scooped £1.6million in total, but insisted that the way he felt when his numbers came up was nowhere near the excitement he gets from his hobby of skydiving.
The property developer has won £160,873 in the EuroMillions to add to the £1million he received in the Millionaire Raffle two years ago.
The chance of scooping this double win is one in 438 million.
But as he posed for photos today after receiving his EuroMillions cheque, adrenaline junkie George said: “I wasn’t really that bothered. Nothing compares with skydiving.”
He said the most important thing about his £1million win was he could send his 13-year-old daughter Elaine to private school – and keep paying for her skydiving training.
George lives on his own in what he calls a “normal” three-bedroom home in Ilford, Essex.
He has been a resident in the town since 1995 and does not plan to move away.
