A DAD has won a £3million home in Somerset in a prize draw - after being told he'd "only win a toaster".

Michael Maher, 53, paid £10 for an Omaze ticket and now has the keys to a mansion and £100,000 cash.

When Omaze officials told him he'd won a prize, his daughter warned him not to get too excited.

She said he'd probably won a toaster - well, the massive house does come with a toaster in the kitchen.

Michael said: “I had a call from Omaze saying I'd won a prize.

''Obviously I was intrigued but my daughter was somewhat sceptical and told me not to get too excited as I've probably only won a toaster.

''Luckily for me it turned out to be a £3million house - that also happens to come with a toaster.

“We went to the pub to celebrate and then on for a nice curry - it was your average Friday night really, apart from the fact we’d just become millionaires.

“When they told us we’d won the house in Somerset, the first thing my daughter said was that she’d had the best kebab in her life last time she was there."

He added: ''I thought she might be more impressed with the tennis court to be honest, but you can never tell with teenagers.

“I’m actually rubbish at tennis, but maybe I'll improve as I've got no excuse not to practice now.

“My son and daughter asked us if they can quit their Saturday jobs now that we own a mansion - we said absolutely not, we want them to stay grounded.

''Going from a rented house in Luton to owning a six-bedroom house in the countryside is just mind blowing."

Michael is free to either live in the house, rent it out or sell it to become a cash multi-millionaire.

If Michael decides to rent it out, local estate agents estimate that the property could achieve a long-term rental value of between £6,000 - £8,000 per month.

Michael and his wife, Amanda, 54, along with their teenage son and daughter have lived in their rented house for eight years.

Michael also has two sons and a grandchild from his first marriage.

He said: “We have family all over the world and plenty of room for them to come and stay now - if we decide to give them the address that is.

“I subscribed to Omaze because it's a great way to support different charities month in, month out. Also, the chance to win a £3million pound house for a tenner isn’t bad either.

“We’re not sure what we’re going to do long term yet - we’ll definitely spend some time here and enjoy it as a family - whatever we decide, it’s going to change all our lives for the better.”

As well as making Michael a multi-millionaire, the Omaze Million Pound House Draw also raised £3,500,000 for the RSPCA.
