A TESCO shelf stacker quit their minimum wage job after scooping up £1.3million on a £6 bet.
Jason Mandara told his Tesco manager he won £1,305,269 on a Betfred mobile phone slot game.
The dad of three now plans to set up his own roofing business and buy a four-bedroom home, a new car, a luxury holiday, and the most unforgettable Christmas for his family.
The 30-year-old had just finished a shift at the supermarket and was on a school run when he decided to place a bet on Megajackpots Cleopatra.
When he saw he had won he panicked and kept the news to himself, but when Betfred called to confirm he had scored the jackpot he immediately quit his £1,300-a-month job he had since he was 18.
Jason, from Bedworth, Warks., told The Daily Star: “I told my boss I was leaving and he wanted to know why to which I answered that I’d just become a millionaire.
“He didn’t believe me just like everyone else, I still handed my notice in.
“I’m still going to work of course but just not at Tesco.

“I’m going to set up a roofing business which is something I’ve always wanted to do. I might also invest in property.”
Jason’s semi-detached home, owned by his dad, and their 14-year-old Vauxhall Astra are getting upgraded.
Betfred boss Fred Done said: “To paraphrase Tesco’s slogan – Jason has obviously found that his little £6 bet has helped him rather a lot!”
