 Jacket Potatoes & Cheese For £2.2m UK Lotto Winners

Some players like to do outlandish things after a win, but this couple chose to keep it simple and homey. This winning couple won over £2 million with the UK Lotto in the 16th of September draw. Read further to find out the full details of their story. 

The winners are Peter and Claire Occardi from Yorkshire, England. Peter is 48-years-old and he plans on buying a plane with his UK Lotto winnings! Peter, being the happy and excited winner that he is, has started calling his wife Claire, “Rodney” after the “Only Fools and Horses” character. He is in such high spirits that he can’t stop saying to his wife, “This time tomorrow, Rodney, we’ll be millionaires,” a famous line from the TV show. 

Only Fools And Horses

This big UK Lotto win is the latest win to have taken place in the area. The last win came from Lewis Gill who won £100,000 with the UK National Lottery. Peter Occardi, the winner in this story, is a design engineer by profession and he said he recalls getting an email from the famed National Lottery asking him to kindly check his account because something wonderful was waiting there for him. 

This email arrived the week before he only managed to win £25, so at the time he thought nothing of it and thought he had won another small prize. “Initially I thought it would be another of the same so I didn’t really think much of it,” explained Peter. 

Peter eventually got around to checking his results on his phone and initially thought they had won the sum of £2,000 like many other past winners. “I looked again and noticed there were too many digits to be possibly right. ‘What’s wrong?’ my wife Claire asked as all the color drained from my face,” said Peter. 

In total, the lucky couple won £2,237,824. Their life-changing winning UK Lotto numbers were:

12-14-21-22-37-43

Claire, 44, works as a marketing consultant and told reporters: “We still didn’t believe it. So we carried on with life as usual. Peter went to work and I carried on working at home. We didn’t even have an exciting tea or anything. I made us jacket potatoes and cheese.”

This is similar to another previous winner, Maureen Wilkinson from Belfast who went to work even though she had just won £300,000 with the UK National Lottery. 

Peter Occardi has been looking at investing in a small aircraft for some time now after getting his pilot’s license two months ago. He joked, “I think I’ll buy myself one. Nothing too fancy, just something with two wings!” You can see that Peter is the jokester in the family. The family also plans on using their UK lotto winnings to start their own business and give their two-year-old the “best upbringing” possible.
