Clive Osborne has followed the Silver Lotto System method of playing the same numbers every week.
Playing identical numbers for many years has paid off for a 52-year-old Welshman last week when he won £1,564,628 on the National Lottery.
Clive Osborne, a carer and former warehouse worker, has always had an ambition to travel and see the world.
"I was totally shocked when I realised that I’d won, I haven’t slept for days," he told Wales Online.

“My parents thought I was joking and didn’t believe me until the winners advisor from Camelot came to confirm my winnings."
“The news hasn’t really sunk in yet, so I haven’t had a chance to decide what I’ll spend my money on but one thing this money will give me is the freedom to travel around Asia – I would love to visit India and Thailand.
Clive is looking forward to traveling to many parts of the world.
“I have travelled a bit in the past but now I’m looking forward to seeing more of the world."
A keen amateur photographer, Mr Osborne is also planning to treat himself to a state-of-the-art camera and a new tablet computer.
Clive Osborne talked about his feeling after the win - then followed it up with a sign for the deaf.
And his relatives certainly won’t be left out. He plans to splash out on gifts for his close family.
"It's great to be able to treat people to something special and everyone is working on their lists at the moment,” he said.
"There is a bottle of champagne in the fridge but we haven’t celebrated the win just yet, I want to wait until the money is in my account and I know it’s real."
