A single father who won a landmark High Court battle against bookies Betfred after it refused to pay out his £1.7million jackpot has revealed he will never gamble again.
Andrew Green, 54, vowed to turn his back on betting forever after the harrowing courtroom battle left him sleepless and ill from stress.
Speaking to MailOnline, he told how if his legal action had failed he would have lost his home and been left bankrupt and penniless.
And despite a judge ruling he was to have his £1.7million prize finally awarded he still has not received it – so celebrated his triumph with just a £10 pizza and bottle of Coke.
When he finally does get his jackpot bonanza he will spend it paying off his mortgage, getting new windows and 릴게임 talking his three children on holiday.
His three-and-a-half ordeal was finally brought to a close yesterday after the High Court decided in his favour.
Mr Green, who runs a metal coating business with his brother, admitted tough nights during the pandemic, when he shielded over a heart condition, when all he could think about was the case.
But he declared he would do it all over again if he had to, because he is an ‘honest guy’ who ‘would not be bullied.
Mr Green, who lives in Lincoln, told MailOnline: ‘I will never gamble again, 릴게임 just because of the experience I have had.

‘When I did have a little flutter I believed if I did win it would be paid out to me, but unfortunately I have found out what a battle it is to get your money.
‘It has been very stressful, it has costed me finances I did not have to fund the court case, it has been a gruelling battle.
‘It has been stress which has made me very unwell at times.
‘I had to pay for things like having the case heard, hotels to stay here for the case.
‘If I had lost it would have bankrupted me, I would have lost the house, my vehicles, everything.
‘The last three years, it has been a mental battle in my own head, but all the time I thought I had done nothing wrong.
‘I felt all along I was in the right and for the last week I did have a feeling the judge was going to find in my favour.
‘I couldn’t believe it was finally over after three and 릴게임 a half years.
After it was announced, I actually couldn’t sleep last night because so much was going through head.
