Euromillions Prize Draw Surprises Norwegian Player

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.
 
 

Euromillions Prize Draw Winner ‘Not Bothered’

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.
