Watch Worthing man’s reaction to £10,000 cash win

May 2019

Worthing volleyball player Gary Savage was in Croatia at a bootcamp when he received a surprise call telling him he had won £10,000.

His reaction to the Facetime call from BOTB presenter Christian Williams was priceless.

Gary, 48, said afterwards: “I’m still shaking. When Christian appeared on my phone, it really blew me away.”

He was picked for the cash prize in lifestyle competition BOTB, which has winners across the world every week.

It was a complete shock, as Gary had forgotten he had even entered.

The avid player revealed he was in Croatia for a volleyball bootcamp with 30 of his teammates and he was just about to start his second match of the afternoon when he received the video call.

Lost for words at first, Gary then announced he would be taking the whole team out for dinner and drinks that evening.

Gary said: “I couldn’t remember what I’d entered for, so you can imagine my surprise when Christian told me I’d won £10,000.”

Since it was founded in 1999 by William Hindmarch, BOTB has given away more than £29million worth of prizes. It has high-profile stands at airports and in shopping centres, though 75 per cent of punters play online.

Gary, who works as an IT manager, was training for seven hours a day during the bootcamp.

He said: “The guys have been so great about the win, so I’d love to take them out on Friday as it will be our final day at the boot camp. I like to give back as much as possible and the team really deserve it.”

Gary also plans to give some of his winnings to his family, as well as funding his next few volleyball trips.

He added: “It’s a huge weight off my shoulders knowing that I can afford the next few trips with ease. I’m just thrilled, it all feels like a dream.”

Christian was thrilled to speak with Gary and give him the good news.

He said: “There’s nothing better than our work allowing people to give back to their friends and family and it’s great to know that the cash will go towards Gary’s passion. I hope the team will have a great time throughout the rest of bootcamp.”

TESTIMONIAL

I’ve been playing the car competition regularly for about the last 4 or 5 months, mainly because I have had terrible luck with lots of different car purchases recently! I then also discovered the lifestyle comp and entered that a few times too - I thought 25p for £5k and 50p for £10k was amazing value so I’d entered a few times for these amounts but generally just £5 a week.

After my morning session of volleyball camp abroad last Monday I went back to my hotel room and checked my calls/messages and there were none, so I thought “oh well” it’s not my week. After lunch, I went back and checked the phone again (it was charging in my room) and there was a WhatsApp message from Christian saying he had great news about my entry! This was when my heart started racing and I couldn’t actually remember for sure entering it that week and definitely didn’t know whether I’d done £5k or £10k!  

As you can tell from my reaction I was absolutely over the moon, I couldn’t believe my luck (I still can’t!) I can’t thank BOTB enough, it’s such a fantastic website and real value for money, giving ordinary people a skilled based chance to win fantastic sums of money or car prizes etc for a very small entry fee... it’s such a great business, coupled with a no-nonsense transfer of the money within days! Better than any lottery in my opinion! 

I’ve passed some of the money on to my parents for a “rainy day” as well as buying, what seems, to have been 100 beers for my friends! Thanks again to the whole team! Keep up the good work and tell those judges they rock!!!
