One lucky ticket holder from the United Kingdom has just won a life-changing jackpot in the EuroMillions lottery. After matching the five main numbers and also the two lucky start numbers, the winner walked away with a £54,957,242.50 prize. The National Lottery’s senior winners’ advisor, Andy Carter stated that it was a brilliant light for the ticket holder who had managed to win the £54 million jackpot in the EuroMillions draw.
Biggest Winners of EuroMillions Lottery
He urged all EuroMillions players to check their tickets and to get in touch with them to claim their prize. This win comes after Joe and Jess Thwaite became the biggest winners of the EuroMillions lottery. Hailing from Britain, the couple managed to scoop a prize of £184,262,899 on May 10th, thanks to a Lucky Dip ticket. However, the happy couple from Gloucestershire are quite ‘down to earth’ and have not let the lottery win go to their heads.
Volvo V60 Becomes Their First Purchase
It would be perfectly acceptable if the couple was out there living a high life, but it emerged that the first big purchase the couple made from their win was that of a Volvo V60, which is valued at £38,000. Almost £30 million is generated by National Lottery players on a weekly basis, which are contributed to good causes and numerous charities. To date, almost £1.2 billion has already been given to various charities in order to help with the coronavirus pandemic.
