As a veteran postman you would have thought a hiking holiday would be the last thing a Betfred winner would want to spend his windfall on.

But the 56 year old father of two from the Midlands is doing just that after winning £32,525. He wagered £25 on the New York lottery … and his three numbers 9, 34 and 43 all came out.

The jubilant Betfred online customer said: “I will be paying off a chunk of my mortgage on our semi detached family home – and a present for the wife is a given.

“There will be something for our grown-up children too but the big thing is a trip to the Scottish Highlands, near Inverness.

“My wife and I love hiking up there. It may seem odd with all the walking I do on my rounds as a postie but why not? Walking, especially in the fresh air with all that scenery, is good for you.

“I picked 34 because it’s not come out for ages and 43 because it’s the same numbers the other way round – while with nine I just chose that number randomly.”

Betfred boss Fred Done said: “What a great way to spend your winnings. If he gets the chance pick me up some haggis, and a nice bottle of whisky would be most welcome too, after this popular winner has picked my pocket big time.”
