Many EuroMillions players in the UK forget that if they didn’t win the jackpot, it doesn’t mean that they’ve gone home empty-handed. Most players forget to check their Millionaire Maker code at the back of their ticket. Asda employee, Amanda Lewis, almost forgot to do this and was ready to throw away her ticket before discovering her massive win.
Amanda is from Featherstone in Staffordshire, England. The 49-year-old woman won her EuroMillions windfall in the draw that took place on the 7th of June this year. A few of her colleagues couldn’t make it to work so she offered to help cover for them. As you can imagine, it ended up being a very tiring and long day for her. After she finally got off her shift, she remembered that she needed groceries for the house.
Amanda said that she has experienced good luck when playing the lottery in the past, but no major wins. She said she only won £2 in a previous lottery draw. While at the grocery store, she chose to get herself a EuroMillions ticket with her meagre £2 winnings from the previous draw. She bought the ticket, completed her shopping, went home and didn’t think about the ticket until the following day.
The day after, she checked the results, and saw that her numbers didn’t match any of the winning ones. She forgot to check her Millionaire Maker code, too. She asked a woman at a lottery kiosk in Asda to take another look at her ticket because she was tired of feeling demotivated by no winning numbers and thought her eyes were just playing tricks on her. The woman got the fright of her life when she saw the Millionaire Maker code.
“When she started to smile I went a bit weak at the knees,” said Amanda. She was so glad that she got another pair of eyes to check the ticket before she threw it away. Amanda’s win is the latest won to have been discovered in a supermarket.
Amanda doesn’t know what she’s going to do with all her EuroMillions winnings, but she said she wants to make sure her kids are taken care of first. Her two kids Ryan and Charlotte will be given their own cars. The family want to go on holiday to Cyprus.
“Once everything we need to buy in our lives has been sorted out, I’m just going to have a think, discuss it with my husband Barry ad take it steady,” explained Amanda.
