Lottery winner plans Mexico break

18th Mar 2013

A man who won the lottery twice in a little over a year says he will spend part of his winnings on going on holiday to Mexico.

Essex-based property developer George Traykov scooped £1 million in the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle in September 2011, before netting £160,873.80 in a EuroMillions draw last November, although he did not claim his latter winnings until January of this year.

Aside from refurbishing his three-bedroom house in Ilford, the 45-year-old Bulgarian native wants to enjoy a break in Cancun, in south-east Mexico.

Mr Traykov is a keen skydiver and while Cancun is perhaps most known for its sprawling coastline of glistening beaches, he will be able to quench his thirst for adrenaline as high-octane adventure activities are plentiful.

Cancun also has many world-class golf courses and Mayan landmarks are also dotted around the region, thus convincing tourists from all four corners of the globe to visit this beautiful part of the world in their droves.

Mr Traykov seemed quite laid back about his latest windfall, saying: "I wasn't really that bothered - nothing compares with skydiving."

Perhaps that had something to do with the fact that he missed the £12 million jackpot by one number.
