The mystery tradesman, who purchased his entry online prior to the draw, was one of five ticket holders on the night to overcame odds of 1 in 6,991,908 and land the sizeable six-figure sum. Upon collecting his cheque, an elated Mr C informed lottery officials that he would be using his newfound wealth to pay off his mortgage and surprise his family with cash gifts.
Andy Carter, The National Lottery’s Senior Winners’ Advisor, was quick to praise the ecstatic electrician: “Huge congratulations to Mr. C for winning this fantastic prize without even touching a ticket. After a few simple clicks he has become over one hundred and forty thousand pounds richer!”
Mr C’s victory came during what proved to be a prosperous month for EuroMillions enthusiasts. A total of three jackpots were won during July, with players from Ireland, Portugal and the UK all joining the illustrious list of top prize winners.
A joyous July also resulted in another lucky ticket holder collecting a huge prize from National Lottery headquarters. Mr O, an anonymous IT worker from Bedfordshire, matched one of the two UK Millionaire Maker codes drawn on Friday 21st July to bag £1 million. The winning player didn’t give much away, but did hint that he would be treating his loved ones with gifts and purchasing a new home.
July may have ended, but there is no reason why August can’t be just as joyful. Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot is a sensational £25 million, a total that would suit any bank account. For your chance to become the first top prize winner of the month, simply pick your numbers online or play through any authorised retailer. Best of luck!
