Another EuroMillions winner form the UK has come forward to claim the enormous jackpot worth £71 million from March 15th, 2019. The new winner decided to keep from the limelight and will remain anonymous. The lucky numbers that earned the mysterious Brit this huge pot were 3-15-24-42-46/09-12.
This win marks a clear winning spree in the UK, as many of the latest winners in Europe’s favorite lottery were Brits. In fact, on the very first draw of the year, Frances and Patrick Connolly from Northern Ireland scooped a huge £115 million. The couple became very popular with the press after sharing their adorable reaction to becoming millionaires.
While others celebrate such events with champagne or other alcohol-soaked beverages, the Connolly’s brewed themselves a delicious pot of tea and pondered on their striking good fortune. It was Frances who insisted that Patrick buys a lottery ticket. He made the purchase online and he chose the Quick Pick option. It was a completely random selection of numbers that earned them the pot.
Now, with £115 million extra in their bank account, the Connolly’s want to share their good fortune with their loved ones. They said they have a long list of people they intend to make rich. And they seem very determined to do so. “There will be more added to the list, no doubt. The joy for us will be when we tell them all face to face.”
Another Brit who came forward as a lottery winner was 51-year-old Andrew Clark. He was the big winner of a £76 million pot awarded in November 2018, but only found out six weeks later, when he found the lottery ticket in his van.
As soon he discovered the ticket, Mr. Clark went on to collect the big pot. Then, he and his partner, Trisha Fairhurt, started living the lottery life and moved into a four-room house, complete with a luxury indoor pool, a triple garage, and a personal gym. They also upgraded their wheels to match their new status to a £80,000 Mercedes-Benz and a Nissan Qashcai.
The most famous of all the EuroMillions winners are undoubtedly Adrian and Gillian Bayford, who scooped the cap-jackpot back in 2012. Since then, they’ve been all over the press with their lottery adventures. The couple got a divorce soon after their win and since then, they’ve been sought love separately.
The upcoming EuroMillions draw is just around the corner. On Tuesday, March 19th, 2019, the pot will be at £14 million. Play EuroMillions online from anywhere in the world and you could be the next big jackpot winner! Good luck!
