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.
 

Three Exploding Rockets in a Firework Display

 
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 Winner ‘Not Bothered’

 
 

Bottle Of Champagne In The Snow

 

We all scan the Euromillions results hoping that we have purchased a winning ticket. I suspect that we would be somewhat excited if we found we had actually won a major prize in the Euromillions prize draw.

45-year-old George Traykov of Ilford in Essex however claims to be not that bothered about his latest win.

Mr. Traykov, a property developer originally from Bulgaria, won £160,873 in the Euromillions prize draw earlier this year. It took him two months to claim his prize however and it brings his total winnings up to £1.2 million after also winning in September 2011.

He sounded a little disappointed that he had not won the top prize of £12 million and told the press that winning in the lottery did not compare with the thrill of skydiving, his first love.

A former member of the Bulgarian national skydiving team, Mr. Traykov said, “nothing compares to skydiving.” With his first win he sent his daughter, Elaine, to private school and booked her skydiving lessons.

The single father has no plans to move away from Ilford. He has lived in the town for almost 20 years, says he has “lovely neighbours” and he feels safe in the area. He plans to renovate his home with the money he has won.

He is teetotal and had to practise spraying champagne for photographers. Earlier this year he did have holiday in Cancun to get used to his new situation but feels he has always had enough money in his life. “I’ve always worked hard and never spent more than I have so money has never been a major problem for me,” he said.

Mr. Traykov could still win more money; he has three more tickets he has not yet checked and, in any case, still intends to play the Euromillions prize draw.

Young Sussex Man Is A UK Lottery Winner



Being young these days brings with it more and more challenges with student debts, pressure to buy expensive products and the difficulty in buying a home but one young man from Brighton has solved the problem by becoming a UK lottery winner.

Computer programmer Alex Wheatley, who lives with his parents and sister, regularly plays the UK lottery draw but only plays theEuromillions prize draw when the jackpot rolls over. He bought a ticket for the Olympic celebration draw on Friday 27 July 2012 as the jackpot had built to an exciting £118 million. Playing online, he noted he had £6 in credit so he used that to buy three Euromillions prize drawtickets.

He tends to forget that he has bought the tickets so it was Sunday evening before he remembered to check the winning numbers. There was a message about a win on his tablet but he was not worried, as he has won between £2.60 and £10 before. He investigated further and found he had not only recovered his £6 stake but that he was one of 100 Millionaire Raffle winners on Friday.

Not believing what he saw, Alex double checked on his laptop and then calmly walked into the living room where his parents were watching television and said, “I don’t want to jump the gun but I think I’m a millionaire!”

Family and friends all helped him celebrate the win that evening and a few tears were shed.

Like so many winners, Alex is very sensible about being a UK lottery winner and happily went back into work the next day. Oddly he was thinking of asking for a pay rise! He is quite content about staying at work but, not surprisingly, a house is top of his shopping list. Alex has also promised to pay off his parents mortgage and his sister will move into the house with him.

Winning the Euromillions prize draw has set Alex Wheatley up nicely for life.
