Britain’s Biggest Ever Lottery Winner Has Come Forward to Claim £170m
A lucky ticket holder in the UK has hit the headlines after claiming a record-breaking win of £170m, after the EuroMillions rolled over a total of five times. Back in October, a single winner managed to match all five main balls drawn and the two lucky stars to become the largest ever winner in the UK. The lucky numbers were 07, 10, 15, 44, 49 and the stars: 03, 12 and this win has made them wealthier than Adele who has amassed a fortune of £150m throughout her singing career and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle!
Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “What an amazing win – the biggest ever on The National Lottery. The team will now support and help guide the ticket holder as they begin their adventure with this life changing win. By buying a ticket for EuroMillions or any other National Lottery game, every player is helping to raise money for good causes.”
Another big winner was Steve also from the UK who only discovered he’d won £105,100,701.90 after going to work! Steve said, “I am not sure I even looked at the first 2 lines, the third one just jumped out and I could instantly tell they all matched. I started shaking a lot. I knew it was a really big win but didn’t know what to do. I went out to my van, walked back in, thought about knocking on a neighbour’s door, went back to the van – I think I was on the verge of having a heart attack.”
Speaking on his win with the National Lottery, the lucky fella has revealed that his wife originally thought he had won £105K and requested they go away for Christmas, but he had to instantly point out there were far more zeros on the confirmation app than she expected! His children have put in very modern requests with his oldest son asking for a bedroom to himself, his daughter is hoping for a pink iPhone and their other 10-year old son is requesting a Tesla – yes, the real deal!
