A single ticket-holder could become the UK's third-biggest National Lottery winner, with a £123 million EuroMillions jackpot up for grabs.
Builder Andrew Clark, from Boston, Lincolnshire, reportedly told family and friends that he will honour all the jobs he agreed to before his £76 million EuroMillions win.
Andrew Clark didn't claim the cash for six weeks after he won, not realising he was a multimillionaire.
A UK ticket holder, who bought their ticket in the Boston and Skegness area, has scooped the £76 million EuroMillions jackpot.
If you bought a ticket for Tuesday’s EuroMillions draw, you might want to check it. Someone in the UK is sitting on a jackpot win of £57.9 million after the draw but hasn’t yet claimed it. Camelot said the jackpot was won by a single UK ticket, which matched all seven numbers, scooping them a fortune of £57,975,367.70.
The EuroMillions lottery is about to get even more expensive for Brits - and it’s going to be even more impossible to scoop the jackpot. The price increase comes despite the fact that participation dropped by a staggering 40% the last time Camelot raised their prices for the National Lottery. In October 2013, ticket prices for the weekly National Lottery draws increased from £1 to £2, with the operator saying at the time that it predicted that the amount of money that it passes on to good causes would increase as a result.
Lottery winner Jane Park likes to keep her man on a tight leash - including when he’s away with the lads in Ibiza. The 20-year-old has posted a list of “Ibiza rules” for boyfriend Connor George on Facebook, under the heading ‘Psycho Jane at it again’. Jane has even designed a special t-shirt for her boyfriend of two months to wear, which includes a lovely picture of them together, as well as one of Jane looking menacing.
Gillian Bayford landed the fortune with husband Adrian in August 2012 and she gave her family £20 million soon after. Mrs Bayford also claims that her “greedy” family still expect her to give them money whenever they need it, despite driving in expensive cars and living in plush houses.
Friday night’s Euromillions draw saw 5 and 8 picked out as the Lucky Star numbers, but ticket holders checking online were told the numbers were 5 and 6. Many were quick to spot the error, prompting enraged tweets to Euromillions bosses, Mail Online reports.
If you chose the last one, the Lady Gaga collection, you’re in good company - that’s what Adrian Bayford, who won £148 million on Euromillions, has treated himself to. A source told The Sun that the lottery winner hoped to open a shop with ‘the biggest collection of Lady Gaga memorabilia in the world’.
