“Husband runs away, then wife wins lottery”
A woman, who was dumped by her husband for her best friend, won the lottery jackpot on the anniversary he left.
The unnamed woman, a seamstress in Colombia, was days away from losing her home when she won about 11 million baht.
In the middle of celebrating, she even received a ‘flirtatious’ phone call from her ex-husband.
But the woman says she’ll never get back together with him.
Her win means her daughter could enroll in her next term at university, as the family were unable to afford the fees.
She bought the ticket on January 17, which by chance was the one-year anniversary her husband left her.
