Tesco shelf stacker quits minimum wage job after winning £1.3million on £6 bet

A man who stacked shelves in Tesco for a living has quit his minimum wage job after winning more than £1 million on a £6 bet he made when he "felt lucky".

Dad-of-three Jason Mandara scooped £1,305,269 on a Betfred mobile phone slot game, and now plans to set up his own business after leaving his job of 12 years.

He also wants to buy a four-bedroom house, a new car, a posh holiday and an extravagant Christmas for his family.

He told Daily Star : "I can't believe what has happened.

"This kind of money is going to change my life forever.

"My partner Sian, who I've been with for seven years and is a shop assistant who has always worked very hard like me, still doesn't believe what has happened."

Jason, 30, from Bedworth in Warwickshire, had just finished a supermarket shift and was on the school run when he had a go on the Megajackpots Cleopatra.

"I had a spare five minutes after getting to the school to pick up the kids.

"I felt lucky so had a go on the slots because I could see that a £1.3 million jackpot was up for grabs," he said.

"I was panicking at first when I'd won that much and kept it to myself. 

"I went to bed early because I was so tired after my Tesco shift, and when I woke up I noticed that I had a call from Betfred verifying that I had indeed won." 

Jason quit the £1,300-a month job he's had at the Bedworth Tesco store since he was 18, telling his boss he had "just become a millionaire."

"He didn't believe me just like everyone else. I still handed my notice in."
