The second biggest EuroMillions winner from the United Kingdom blew his £40million at a rate of £100,000 before passing away.
The news was revealed after a document about the winning was released to the public.

At the time, it was the largest win ever, but last year, an unnamed player in Italy landed £193million.
In December of last year, the man passed away at the age of 71 and his share of the windfall had shrunk by £40million.

Not only that, but it was revealed that he used his fortune with Friends and Charitable trusts.
He also gave away some of the money to his 2 kids, 32-year-old Carly and 30-year-old Jamie.
Weeks after passing away, Colin threw his friends and family a trip on a luxury £1million event at the Trump Turnbery.

1 month before he passed away, the man bought 55 percent stake of the team that he loved, he did it so he could donate the club to the fans and put its future in the hands of the local community.
Colin and Christine divorced after staying together for the last 38 years.
