February Proves a Lucky Month for UK EuroMillions Players
4th March 2016 10:20 AM
The £24.6 million EuroMillions prize on offer in the draw on Tuesday 23rd February has been claimed by a player from the UK. The lucky Brit scooped the prize after matching all five main numbers and the two Lucky Stars on the night and has chosen to remain anonymous.
February may be the shortest month, but it has proved to be one of the luckiest for UK players as the latest winner has become the second successful jackpot claimant from the country in less than two weeks after a similarly-sized top prize was claimed in the draw on Saturday 12th February. The win also narrows the gap on the winners table as the UK, now with 57 wins, now finds itself within one EuroMillions jackpot win of Portugal, currently on 58. There still remains quite a gap to the top, however, as Spain (77) and France (79) are way out in front.
For many people, winning a prize of this size would be what dreams are made of, but what can a jackpot of £24.6 million actually buy the winners? The most expensive car in history, a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, could be purchased for £22.8 million, or maybe they’d like an Italianate villa in St John’s Wood, London, available for just over £18 million. Perhaps they’d spring for a piece of British history in the form of a copy of the Magna Carta, which could be bought for around £10.6 million - which would even leave enough to buy an International Space Station toilet for a mere £11 million.
As Tuesday’s jackpot rolled over, tonight’s EuroMillions top prize will be an estimated £19 million, a prize that could potentially be the key to unlocking all of your desires. To be in with a chance of winning this incredible jackpot, tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer in participating countries. Best of luck!
