When luck comes to us it comes with great compassion. This is what happened in Europe’s lucky draw games.
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.
