The winner of the 2016 Grand National Sweepstake is…

Here is what Dan had to say about his fantastic win…

“I knew that as soon as I drew ‘Rule the World’ out of the hat, that he had a great chance, I just had that feeling. I’m just speechless really, this win is going to change my life. I’ll be sad to leave the guys at Telescope, but when you win such a huge amount of money, you’re not going to stay at work are you?”

Dan took part in the Telescope sweepstake, despite a week of controversy surrounding the event.

“Lisa, who ran this year’s sweepstake discovered that there were some non-runners, so made the decision to start over with the sweep, which caused some major arguments amongst the catalogue production and artwork guys. I was going to opt out because of the infighting, but with such a huge amount of money at stake I had to have a go.”

Dan now plans to retire immediately and says that his winnings will mean he and his family can live a life of luxury from now on.
