Ex-conman who became millionaire after lottery win scoops jackpot AGAIN – but does something surprising with cash | The Sun
A FORMER conman who won millions on the lottery has scooped another jackpot win – but this time did something unusual with the money.
Kursat Yildrim, 42, who has done time for robbery and fraud, bagged an £8.72 million lottery jackpot on September 24 last year.
The former crane operator from Dortmund, Germany, has now bagged £2,300 after getting lucky on the lotto again.
After his first win he went on a huge spending spree but this time he decided to give his winning away.
Kursat told German media: “I can’t believe it, it’s crazy.”
Following his big win last year, he splashed the cash on a £392,000 V8 Ferrari 448 Pista and a £178,000 Porsche Turbo S Cabriolet, flash watches and a fancy apartment in Istanbul.

At the time he said: “I continue to play the lottery. I just love the thrill.”
Kursat has become something of a celebrity in Germany, appearing on the cover of BILD three times and doing an interview with Thomas Gottschalk on evening TV.
He has also been shooting a TV documentary in Africa and been involved with aid projects with the Dortmunder Tafel.
Speaking about his plans, the multimillionaire added: "I'd love to go to Africa to dig wells and give presents to the children there.
"Believe me, I'll never forget where I'm coming from. I'm working class, I'll never become an arrogant person."
