Keighley man who wins £100,000 car and £20,000 in cash declares: "I feel like a celebrity!" {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A KEIGHLEY man says he “feels like a celebrity” after winning a £100,000 car – plus £20,000 in cash.

Mohammed Ali, 22, scooped the Audi RS7 Sportback and money in an online competition – for just a £4.65 ticket.

He has only been playing the BOTB ‘spot the ball’ game for a few months.

And Mohammed revealed that he’d just ordered a new car when he got the news of his win!

He said he couldn’t believe it when BOTB presenter Christian Williams turned-up outside his home in the Audi.

“I was shaking when I saw him!” he said.

“I put my hands on the steering wheel but I was all over the place.

“I played for three cars that week and I wouldn’t have minded any of them!

“All I can think is how lucky I’ve been.

“Like a lot of people I’m working from home at the moment, from my bedroom, but as soon as the news got out I had my brother and my cousins sitting with me – talking about cars constantly! I feel like a celebrity with all the good wishes coming in.”

Mohammed likened being in the car to “sitting in a five-star hotel”.
“It’s the most incredible car,” he added.

“It looks so mean from the outside, with wheels to die for, but the inside is ultimate luxury.

“I only ordered a new car a couple of weeks ago – an Audi Q2 Black edition – so now I’m going to have to cancel that and think about this instead.”

Since BOTB was founded in 1999 by William Hindmarch, it has given away over £34 million worth of prizes – including supercars, cash and holidays.

But the 600hp RS7 is one of the most sought-after cars in BOTB’s line-up, which also features everything from Porsches and Ferraris to Lamborghinis and BMWs.

Mohammed is the 535th winner.

Christian said he was thrilled to deliver the prize – and to see Mohammed’s reaction!

“I have the best job in the world – surprising winners with the cars of their dreams – and you could see what it meant to Mohammed,” he said.

“The RS7 is an amazing car and it just happens to have found a home with a man who’s as passionate about cars as I am! Everyone at BOTB wishes him all the best.”

BOTB, a company listed on the stock market, began life at Heathrow Airport.

Now based in Fulham, its online game has had winners from across the world.

It clocked-up its 500th winner last year.

Former professional footballers judge the competition independently each week, alongside current and former referees.

Mr Hindmarch said: “The idea of BOTB is quite simple – to give people a great chance to win the car of their dreams.”
