A lucky graduate who has bagged £10,000 every month for the next 30 years on Set for Life won't be taxed and will receive every penny of the prize, it has emerged.
Dean Weymes, 24, hit the jackpot on his first attempt at the new National Lottery game.
The screenwriting graduate, of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, will enjoy a whopping £3.6 million in total in installments until he turns 54.
National Lottery has told Mirror Online more about the game, including background information and details about Dean's winnings.
Set for Life, which was introduced in March, offers a top prize of £10,000 per month for 30 years and runs draws on Monday and Thursday.
Camelot, which runs the competition, addressed some of Daily Mirror's other questions.
- What happens if you die?
- Does it go up with inflation or is it a fixed amount?
- Is tax taken off the £10,000 each month?
- Does the lack of interest on £10,000 mean you're much better off winning the lump sum?
“I cannot actually believe that I am really going to be able to do these things – and do them right now.
“It is just incredible. I am 24 and I am now literally set for life."
The Arsenal fan, who has quit his part-time job with transport team at Amazon, lives with his sister who introduced him to Set for Life.
"Getting £10k every month allows me to start working through my bucket list," he said.
"I have always wanted to fulfil my dream to become a script writer and this now allows me the freedom to do it.
"I didn’t have to give it a second thought – I quit my current role so I can begin to work on the job I have always wanted."
