This Friday’s Euromillions £101 million jackpot was won by a British ticket holder; the 3rd biggest ever UK payout!
Once again a life-changing win will catapult this winner or winners, if a syndicate has won, into the top 1,000 richest people.
This Euromillions jackpot would instantly make the winner the 703rd richest person in the UK; on a par with David Bowie and moving them ahead of celebrity couples such as Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, who all have fortunes of exceeding £50 million.
After 5 draws, the Euromillion jackpot once again built up to this record breaking sum, which is making the Euromillions THE lottery to play twice a week.
Back in July, Colin and Christine Weir were lucky enough to win the biggest UK prize; an incredible £161millon. This unassuming couple from Scotland are now almost as rich as the Beckhams.
Here is how the Weirs have spent their money
- Bought a home for son Jamie, 22, and daughter Carly 24, who is a photography student.
- Provided driving lessons for them both
- Jamie would probably quit his job at a call centre
- Start their own charity
- Travel to Cambodia, Thailand and Australia, as Ayers Rock has always been a goal to visit
We hope Mr Weir was joking when he said he wanted to keep his reliable Suzuki SX4 and six-year-old Suzuki Ignis! however Christine Weir was thinking bigger when she said they were looking into buying a Lexus Prius Hybrid.
A National Lottery spokesman said: ‘This is amazing news – we are absolutely delighted, we have champagne on ice and look forward to welcoming the winner or winners to lottery HQ’. ‘This is the third-biggest winner this country has ever seen and follows hot on the heels of the Weirs. ‘As well as making big winners, EuroMillions contributes to the more than £30million raised every week by The National Lottery for Good Causes here in the UK.’
Lottery bosses said ‘demand for tickets peaked between 5pm and 7.30pm before the draw as punters rushed to try their luck’
