Online car raffle winner vows to buy his mum a new kitchen {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

An IT consultant has promised to buy his mum a new kitchen after winning an online car competition.

Mohsin Nazir entered the BOTB raffle where people pay a small amount for a chance to win a car plus some cash.

The 29 year old said it was the "surprise of a lifetime" when he found out he had won the £30,000 Mini plus £20,000 in cash.

He was at his home in Leicester when BOTB’s Christian Williams turned up to tell him he was this week’s Midweek Car Competition winner.

He said: “I just couldn’t believe it when Christian turned up.

“I’ve been playing BOTB for about a year now and you always dream of winning but never think it will happen to you!”

Mohsin, who paid just just £1.50 for his ticket to enter the competition, said he played for the Mini because of its practicality.

He said: “I drive a lot for meetings with work and I wanted a Mini as they’re fun to drive plus easier to park.

“My dad used to have a Mini years ago and I’ve always liked them ever since!”

But it wasn’t just the car that Mohsin won as £20,000 was waiting for him in the boot.

He said: “I completely forgot about that part of the prize.

“My mum has wanted a new kitchen for years so I’ll be giving her the money so she can finally build it."

BOTB hands over the keys to two cars each week as well as a "lifestyle prize". Other recent winners have bagged a quad bike, a holiday to the Arctic and £15,000 in cash.

The company, founded in 1999, has given away more than £44 million worth of cars so far.

Christian, who surprises the BOTB winners each week, said: “It was a pleasure to meet Mohsin and give him the good news of his win.

"And what a lovely guy helping out his mum with her new kitchen - massive congratulations once again!”
