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.
