One of the best moments after winning a major lotto prize is sharing the good news with your nearest and dearest – at least according to Trevor and Pat Boyce, the winners of a £1.000.000 Euromillions prize. After scooping this extraordinary windfall, the couple had “one of the most surreal Sunday lunches ever” as they told their children they just became millionaires. You could experience the same level of excitement this Tuesday – play Euromillions to take home €51.000.000!
The couple from Addlestone scooped the prize worth over £1.000.000 in Mega Friday drawing on November 27th and described it as “ultimate Christmas”. Mr Boyce was on his way to begin a 12-hour shift at Heathrow Airport when he stopped off to pick up his Euromillions ticket, as he does every Friday.
“I followed my usual routine, putting my ticket in my wallet until I got home at 6 a.m. I put my wallet on the bedside table and fell into bed for a few hours’ sleep after a busy night at work,” explained Trevor.
Two days later, he settled down to listen to football on the radio while his wife Pat was preparing lunch. That was when he remembered to check his Euromillions ticket and after realising that his millionaire code matched the winning one, he forgot about the game completely. What followed was a Sunday lunch that The Boyces will probably never forget.
“Two of our three children still live at home so we had a very enjoyable and noisy Sunday lunch all chatting about the win and what had just happened. It’s not every Sunday you discover you’ve become a millionaire and all your money worries are over,” recalled the lucky winner.
The couple will use the prize money to retire early, help their children with a deposit for a home and fulfil their lifelong dream of moving to the countryside in Dorset.
