Euromillions Prize Draw Surprises Norwegian Player

 
 

Norwegian Church Amongst Snowy Trees

 

Winning a lottery jackpot can change lives and so it was with a winner of the Euromillions prize draw on 3 May this year.

Norwegian businessman Yngvar Borgersen had forgotten he had even bought a ticket for the lottery. He and his son watched the lottery draw on television at home when they heard the Euromillions prize draw jackpot had been won by a person in Skien, their hometown. The sum, 102 million Kroner (£11 million or $17 million), was a new record for a Norwegian winner.

63-year-old Yngvar and his wife went to Turkey on a business trip. Sitting in their room in the Orient House hotel, Istanbul, he found he had a missed call from the Norwegian lottery administrators, Norsk Tipping. His wife persuaded Yngvar to call the company as “it could involve a very large sum.”

Finally on Saturday morning they received confirmation of their good luck. Yngvar celebrated the win with a bottle of champagne with his work associates. He returned to work on the Monday.

The family business, Water and Engergiteknikk, works in the drilling industry and Yngvar initially told reporters he was unlikely to buy any of the usual trappings of a lottery winner but was more likely to purchase a drilling rig for the company.

Subsequently, however, the businessman has used £280,000 of his winnings to help his local football team, Odd Grenland, keep hold of their top defender, Fredrik Semb Berge. Interestingly, Yngvar shows how good he is with money as the agreement means he will receive 25% of any future transfer fee the club receives for Berge.

The story of Yngvar Borgersen shows how winners of the Euromillions prize draw can keep a cool head and help the community too.
