I won TWO lottery jackpots after my husband left me for my best friend – then I got a really cheeky phone call | The Sun

A WOMAN whose husband ditched her for her best friend had the last laugh when she scooped the lotto jackpot TWICE.

The anonymous winner from Barranquilla, Colombia, came out on top following the double betrayal.


She explained she was about to lose her home after becoming a single parent in wake of the split from her unfaithful spouse.

A year before her big win, her husband had left her for her best pal with a huge mortgage on her home to fork out for.

The skint mum had spent all her savings from her job as a seamstress on the property and ended up defaulting on her loan payments.

She was also unable to stump up the cash for the latest installment of her daughter's tuition fees.

Reports claim it is also the largest sum ever claimed on 'The Double Chance Millionaire' game she entered.

Unbelievably, the woman revealed her former husband was the first person to call her after news of her win spread.
