The Euromillions Prize Draw Changes the Lives of A Scunthorpe Couple

 
 
On the 26 July this year the Euromillions prize draw did not produce a jackpot winner but that does not mean there were no winners at all. Of course there were people who took away between £250,000 and £2.70 in smaller prizes but there were also 100 players who received £1 million in the Euromillions prize draw Millionaires Raffle.

Every week of course someone takes away £1 million as a result of this draw in addition to any other prize they have won in the Euromillions prize draw.

One of the 100 lucky people on 26 July was Dave Long of Scunthorpe. The 58 year old discovered the winning ticket in the waste bin and, despite the inevitable excitement such a win creates, he and his fiancée, Kath Mackenzie, did not touch the money for a few weeks. Wisely they immediately placed the sum in the bank where it accrued interest.

This does not mean they will not use their new wealth however. Following the advice of lottery experts, the couple took a holiday on the Norfolk Broads to plan their future.

Top of the list for the pair, who have been together for 12 years, is a wedding next year. Dave has also decided to leave his lorry driving of 21 years to take early retirement. Although he enjoyed the job he felt the time had come to enjoy what he feels is important in life.

The couple’s plans also include a season ticket for Liverpool football club, a cruise, a new car and a camper van.

We hope their Euromillions prize draw win will be the start of a new and exciting phase of life together.

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.

Latest Lottery News: Lottery Winners Sponsor Sports Hopeful


Winners of lotteries such as the Euromillions prize draw and the UK lottery draw are proving that they can be responsible and help other people change their lives just as their good fortune has changed theirs.

The best example of this are Chris and Colin Weir of Largs, Ayrshire who, you may recall won a £161 million Euromillions prize draw jackpot in July of last year.

At the time of their win, the couple were pretty conservative with their plans but subsequently they began to come up with more definite ideas. One use they found for their fortune was to donate £1 million of their Euromillions prize draw money to the Scottish National Party. They also decided to buy cars for themselves and for friends and buy a new house.

Since that time the couple have also started to sponsor young sports hopefuls. Robbie Mason, also from Ayrshire, started riding in showjumping events only four years ago but has already represented Scotland and has won medals.

His father heard of the Weirs’ generosity and wrote them a letter. The couple rang him back quickly and offered £100,000. The Masons were astonished but very excited too.

Robbie is 14 years old and he used the money to buy a new pony and a new lorry. Where once Robbie had to travel with the horses, they can all travel in comfort. As Robbie said, “This money really has changed our lives.”

Chris and Colin Weir have really shown that a lot of good can be done with money won from the Euromillions prize draw.
