A double-jobbing mum scooped £200,000 from a £1 bet – and is now quitting Britain to live her dream life in Thailand.‌

Araya Curry, 40, was exhausting herself earning minimum wage as hospice cleaner by day and working as a restaurant waitress in the evening while raising two sons.‌

But after winning big on Betfred’s own numbers game the Nifty Fifty she is now planning on going back to her native Thailand where her cash will let her and her family live the high life.‌
