An Eastbourne man who won almost £25,000 plans to splash his winnings on a second honeymoon with his wife in Hawaii.
Omar Isamihammed, 37, won the huge sum of £24,738 from a £38 stake on the 49s at Betfred in Cornfield Road.
The supermarket manager said, “When my three numbers 21, 26 and 39 came up I shouted out like you do – I think some people thought something was wrong.
“My wife Anna thought I was joking but I told her it was real and that I’d had my biggest-ever win.
The father of one said, “I went to Hawaii before I was married and will never forget it. It’s a brilliant place. The best place in the world.
“I never thought I would be able to afford to go back but I can now. It will be like a second honeymoon for us. Anna will be getting a nice present too – probably a diamond.
“We went to Ibiza when we got married 12 years ago which was good, but it wasn’t Hawaii.”
