Ade Goodchild, a factory worker from Hereford, England is the latest EuroMillions jackpot winner scooping a massive £71 million in the March 15 draw.
The lucky EuroMillions winner told lottery officials that he got a sudden urge to double-check the EuroMillions lottery results on Saturday. He said he usually doesn’t check the winning numbers until Monday, but something told him to check.
Like most jackpot winners, he too had a hard time believing it was the actual jackpot and at first, he thought he’d only won a fiver but then believed it was £71,000.
The minute he realised that, hold on, he won the jackpot, he immediately thought to himself that it couldn’t be that good. Another thought that crossed his mind was that there were probably more than a few winners who would share the top prize.
It was only when he finally put on his glasses that he discovered that he was the sole winner of the 71 million.
When asked how he celebrated the win, the elated factory worker said he watched his beloved Wales win the Six Nations title and the Grand Slam. As he hadn’t yet received the winnings, he had his favourite takeaway pizza.
He told lottery officials while claiming his massive EuroMillions lottery jackpot that he has already quit his job of 24 years.
He said that he would be buying a new home, one that has a jacuzzi and a swimming pool.
He said he would also love to have a big garden – big enough for his dogs and a hammock for relaxing in.
Joking, he said that he would be on the look-out for some staff to help him and that the thought of having a driver and a cook definitely appealed to him.
Another dream come true will be some travelling to see the Grand Canyon and the pyramids in Egypt.
Other than that, he said that he would look after his family and that he has already told his parents that “they can stop saving now and can spend my inheritance.”
His prize is the 15th biggest lottery win in UK history and the lucky EuroMillions lottery numbers that saw his dreams come true were 03-15-24-42-46 and the two Lucky Stars 09 and 12.
