New Delhi: A 70-year-old woman from Dorking, England, won a lottery jackpot worth 10,000 pounds (about ₹10.37 lakh) over the next 30 years. Doris Stanbridge will receive this amount every month for many years to come.

Mrs Stanbridge mentioned that the victory has made her live for 30 more years to enjoy what she earned. However, the woman celebrated 70th birthday of her by buying a lottery ticket, which is worth thousands of pounds.

Talking about her winning journey, Mrs. Stanbridge said she is at home with her three daughters. She discovered silver spiders in her house and garden, and used the creepy crawly sight to remind him to buy Set For Life tickets via the app.
