Millionaire Raffle Winners Go Public
8th December 2011 7:42 AM
On 25 November the Millionaire Raffle game in the UK created 18 winning tickets worth £1,000,000 each. So far the owners of three of those winning tickets have decided to share their stories with the general public, and we are therefore delighted to now tell you a little more about each one. Those of you who play EuroMillions in the UK will no doubt be inspired to get involved in the next special Millionaire Raffle game on 23 December, which will create another 25 winning tickets. And for those of you who play EuroMillions in any other country, the following stories may inspire you to buy tickets for the EuroMillions game this Friday 9 December, which will offer a jackpot of around €26 million (around £22 million).
The only individual winner among the three that have gone public at the time of writing is 41 year old Paul Turton from Sheffield. Paul doesn’t usually play EuroMillions on a regular basis, but he decided to do so on 25 November and a few hours later he had won a £1,000,000 Millionaire Raffle prize. Paul now intends to buy a new home and will be using some of his cash to enjoy an extra special Christmas.
A syndicate of 25 people who work at or visit the Beech Tree public house in Cheadle won their £1,000,000 prize after playing the EuroMillions game for the very first time. Each member now has £40,000 to enjoy as they please, and shopping lists include new cars, holidays and – as you would expect at this time of year – quite a few extravagant Christmas presents.
Beginners’ luck was also experienced by a syndicate of 15 workers at BAT in London, which had only been playing EuroMillions for three weeks when it landed £1,000,000 in the Millionaire Raffle game on 25 November. The syndicate buys its lottery tickets online, which proves once again that – if luck is on your side – you can win yourself a fortune from the comfort of your own home!
We would like to congratulate all of the winners mentioned here and also anyone else who has managed to win a EuroMillions prize in recent weeks. We also wish everyone the best of luck in the €26 million EuroMillions game this Friday 9 December. Play EuroMillions online today and the next big winner could be you!
