News has finally reached the world about who exactly won the massive £91 million Euromillions Lottery on Friday evening. One ticket belonged to a lottery syndicate from Liverpool, the other a couple from Newport in South Wales and it’s these lottery winners who will make the rich list, the biggest every lottery win by a single player in the UK making them as rich as the DJ Chris Evans.
The draw on Friday evening was one of the biggest ever seen on the Euromillions Lottery and after rolling over five times had hit a staggering £91 million. Two winning tickets shared the jackpot, the biggest ever won by a UK Lottery winner and now the winners have come forward and in a great move for us, created a news story by both opting for publicity.
The first ticket was part of a syndicate by a group of management workers in Liverpool, each on will receive over £5 million in a classic case of sharing the wealth but it’s the second ticket we’re interested in because it’s this winner that has become the winner of the biggest every UK lottery jackpot.
The ticket was sold in Newport in South Wales and tomorrow the winners are to appear in a press conference and receive their cheque. This winner instantly hits the Sunday Times rich list becoming one of the richest people in the UK.
News has been released to show that Newport in Gwent is one of the UK’s luckiest lottery towns, producing seven lottery millionaires in the last three years. Could Newport become the UK’s luckiest lottery town? At this rate it soon may be.
No doubt money advice and counselling will be offered by Camelot to help this player cope with instant stardom and tomorrow we are going to see exactly what a £45 million lottery winner looks like.
