In recent months the financial downturn are in its pick and people still have few dollars to spent on Jackpots, gaming, and lucky draws. It may have become a necessity of those who are always seeking financial stability in their lives and spending on jackpots.
A couple from Gloucestershire has been confirmed as Britain’s biggest lottery winners, scooping a jackpot of £56 million in the EuroMillions game. The pair, from near Cirencester, will appear at a news conference in Bath on Monday, said National Lottery organizer Camelot.
The winners came forward to claim the stake on Saturday, it said. A total jackpot of £112m had been on offer. The money was split with the other winning ticket, bought in Spain. It is the fourth time in three months that a British winner has scooped more than £25m in the EuroMillions draw. In November, Les Scadding, 53, and wife Samantha Peachey-Scadding, 38, from Carleton, south Wales, won £45.5m.
A further £45.5m was won in the same draw by a syndicate of seven IT workers at Hewlett Packard in Liverpool. Then in January, four family members from Dorking in Surrey won £26.1m. The winning numbers on Friday were 1, 5, 18, 38, 45, and the Lucky Star numbers were 4 and 6.
Across Europe, the record EuroMillions win is £113m by a single ticket-holder from Spain in May last year. EuroMillions is played in nine countries – the UK, France, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Irish Republic, Portugal and Switzerland.
