A British man has made a fortune by winning the Lotto jackpot using six numbers, which were printed on a slip inside a cookie.

Danny Williams has been playing with the same numbers since eating at the restaurant on holiday in Greece four years ago.

The 23-year-old scooped 235,588 pounds with numbers 11, 12, 22, 23, 24 and 36.

"The cookie had some wise saying on it and at the bottom, six numbers," British tabloid The Sun quoted Williams as saying.

"From that day on I played those numbers and didn't change them because I thought the moment I did would be the day they came up," he added. (ANI)
