UK couple David and Kathleen Long have beaten odds of 283 billion to 1, and win EuroMillions lottery for a second time in two years.
In astonishing UK gambling news, the lucky couple from Scunthorpe won £1 million in the EuroMillions lottery for a second time last Friday, having won their first big prize back in 2013. It is the tenth biggest EuroMillions jackpot to be won in Great Britain.
A spokesman for Camelot, the company which runs the UK national lottery, said: “This is an extraordinary situation where somebody’s been fortunate enough to win twice. As you can imagine, we see winners who win once who are very, very shocked. It must be even more shocking to win twice.”
David and Kathleen Long knew they’d win EuroMillions lottery a second time
David Long was always confident that he’d win EuroMillions lottery a second time. He told online gambling sites in the UK that he “just knew it would be my turn again someday.”
Continued Long: “I always knew I’d win, even the first time. I just had a feeling it was going to be me. I tend to play when I know there are lots of prizes on the go. Last time I knew I had a good chance because there were 100 prizes of £1 million. Last Friday night I was passing the local shop and saw there were 10 £1 million prizes on EuroMillions and a nice car and thought yeah, I’ll give that a go.”
Despite his assurance that he’d win another million, Long is still having a slightly hard time believing his incredible luck, saying that “it’s definitely taking longer to sink in this time.”
