A lucky Londoner has scooped a £100,000 early birthday present in the shape of a brand-new Audi plus £50,000 in cash thanks to competition company BOTB.
Haseeb Mohammadi, who turns 21 in November, learnt of his win when BOTB presenter Christian Williams video called to give him the good news – botb.com/winners/dc3021.
“This is crazy,” he laughed. “I’ve spent the past year asking my dad for a car of my own for my 21st birthday!”
The IT Technician from Middlesex has been sharing an old Polo with his dad for the past few years and has wanted to get his own wheels for some time.
“This will be a huge upgrade,” he laughed, after spending just £1.40 on his competition ticket.
“I’ve only been playing BOTB for a few months,” he added. “I never expected Christian to call me!”
Usually BOTB’s Christian turns up at the weekly winners’ home to surprise them but Haseeb was in Belfast for work.
“I played for the Audi RS3 because it’s just a great car,” he explained. “I’ve watched all the latest YouTube videos and have been speaking about it to all my friends – I can’t believe I’m going to own one.”
The Audi RS3 Haseeb scooped in the competition boasts 395bhp and can reach a top speed of 155mph.
But it wasn’t just the car that Haseeb won as Christian revealed a briefcase hidden in the boot which was stuffed with £50,000 cash, too.
“No way,” Haseeb said in disbelief. “I can’t believe it. I’ll definitely spend the money on car upgrades and then the rest will go to my dad.”
Haseeb said he wanted to treat his dad, Mirwise, to a nice holiday.
BOTB hands over the keys to two stunning cars each week as well as a lifestyle prize. Other recent winners have bagged a quad bike, a holiday to Las Vegas and more.
The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £42m of cars so far.
Christian, who surprises the BOTB winners each week, said: “What a lovely guy Haseeb is. He’s played for a fantastic prize and the timing is perfect as he turns 21 in a few months time. Massive congratulations again Haseeb and enjoy your new wheels!”
