Sometimes the most mysterious happenings can lead to a lottery win. This was definitely the story of a recent EuroMillions winner who won big thanks to her forgetfulness. Read further for the full Euromillions lotto story.
This winner got to experience double delight after she doubled her Euromillions win. Thanks to her forgetfulness, she bought two tickets with the same winning numbers. She got to secure two full prizes! The woman is from Westmeath and she cashed in two prizes of €21,449 each.
She managed to match five main numbers from the main draw that took place on the 9th of February. The Euromillions player had in fact already bought a ticket into the draw the previous Sunday, but she forgot and went to pick up another entry. She made a very smart choice, though. She played the same numbers!
She had been playing the Euromillions lottery with her close friend since the beginning of 2016. She seemed perplexed that something like that led to her winning big. “I don’t know what made me forget we’d already played!” she laughed. Both tickets were also bought from the same place, funnily enough. They were bought from the Monksland Retail Centre in Athlone.
In total, the woman walked away with a total of €42,898. She said that the money will be put towards a joint holiday to France with her closest friends. They also want to go to Portugal and Eastern Europe. She also wants to get rid of a few bills first too. Because of their good fortune, the friends have all vowed to keep playing Euromillions lotto.
Tuesday’s Euromillions jackpot was won by a UK player. The top jackpot prize has now reset to €15 million.
