If there is a perfect time to win the lottery, it would be the time when an Irish family hit the £350K Euromillions win earlier this month. Luck struck on the 15th January when the lucky family matched all five main numbers plus one lucky star. The EuroMillions ticket they bought was a quick pick ticket bought in the town of Middleton, Co. Cork – famous throughout the world as being the home of Middleton whiskey.
Luck couldn’t have chosen a better moment to knock on their door as the father was left with just £22 on the night before the draw. He is a lucky man, though, and a story from 12 years ago proves it – back then he won about £917 but he was absolutely sure even then that this was not going to be his biggest lottery win.
“I have always been quite lucky and have won a number of small amounts on the EuroMillions in recent weeks. I even won about £917 on the Lotto 12 years ago and I always said I would win big again. It’s still a huge shock to the system – I haven’t slept properly since I found out we’d won on Saturday night. I checked my numbers online and just couldn’t believe my eyes – my numbers were the same as the ones on my screen!”
It was a regular Saturday night for the family when all family members were relaxing at home while the father checked his EuroMillions results online. When he first saw the winning numbers, he couldn’t even believe his eyes. “I rang my mom”, he remembers, “and asked her and my dad to check the numbers for me again. Of course they thought I was joking at first and then total hysteria broke out.”
Needless to say, the family is very excited about their win, especially after the father’s worries about how they were going to get through the next couple of weeks on the night prior to the life-changing EuroMillions draw. The happy winner said he hadn’t been able to sleep much after the big win, but who would want to sleep when there are so many plans for the bright future to be made!
The family’s plans for celebrating the EuroMillions win include a memorable party, and a holiday trip to Spain with sunbathing, sightseeing, and some golfing… Besides, they are planning to buy a new home, “mortgage free”!
It’s a shame that just one Lucky Star is what kept them away from winning the enormous £61 Million EuroMillions jackpot, isn’t it? Get your chance to win big on the next EuroMillions draw, worth £87 million, by playing online your lucky numbers here!
