On Friday 29th July 2016, the EuroMillions jackpot was worth an amazing £61.1 million. Only one lucky ticket correctly matched all 5 numbers as well as the 2 lucky star numbers to win the entire jackpot! The winning ticket belonged to a family syndicate from Wales. The syndicate comprised of 5 family members including Stephanie Davies, her boyfriend Steve Powell, her sister Courtney, their mum Sonia, and Sonia’s partner Keith Reynolds. Splitting their new found fortune, each family member will receive over £12 million!
After recently having a successful operation to remove a parathyroid tumour, mum Sonia was overwhelmed at the news. She had called her daughter Stephanie to say she was feeing lucky just hours before the draw took place– this is the phone call that prompted Stephanie to go to the store to purchase 6 lucky dip tickets that would change their lives forever.
The Davies family and their partners are now the 4th EuroMillions jackpot winners to come from the UK this year!
Although they haven’t decided any firm plans on what to spend their £12 million on yet, Stephanie and boyfriend Steve are interested in a holiday to the sunny Caribbean, and sister Courtney is eyeing up the possibility of a new car!
