couple winning lottery twice

They look like they got married in the meantime…

Lightning really does strike twice—at least it did for David and Kathleen Long, who’ve won the £1 million EuroMillions jackpot for the second time in two years.

In UK gambling news almost too incredible to believe, David and Kathleen Long of Scunthorpe, England, have won their second £1 million EuroMillions jackpot. The lucky lottery winners in UK beat odds of 283 billion to 1 to win the tenth biggest EuroMillions jackpot to be awarded in Great Britain.

A spokesman for UK national lottery company Camelot said that: “This is an extraordinary situation where somebody’s been fortunate enough to win twice. As you can imagine, we see winners who win once who are very, very shocked. It must be even more shocking to win twice.”

While most fans of online casinos in UK are dumbfounded by the Long’s luck, David Long said that he knew all along that he’d win a second £1 million EuroMillions jackpot.

“I always knew I’d win, even the first time. I just had a feeling it was going to be me. I tend to play when I know there are lots of prizes on the go. Last time I knew I had a good chance because there were 100 prizes of £1 million. Last Friday night I was passing the local shop and saw there were 10 £1 million prizes on EuroMillions and a nice car and thought yeah, I’ll give that a go.”

Listening to his gambling intuition definitely paid off!

Lucky Couple Wins GBP1 Million Lottery Prize and a Trip to Australia

Nov 10, 2014
David and Sam Mackie were the first couple to win in the new EuroMillions Mega Friday draw

David and Sam Mackie were the first couple to win in the new EuroMillions Mega Friday draw

After winning GBP1 million at the lottery, a young couple from Basingstoke will finally get the honeymoon they’ve been dreaming about.

Booking a trip to Australia – that’s the first thing David and Sam Mackie will be spending their lottery winnings on. The couple just won the new EuroMillions Mega Friday draw last week, allowing them to take a much-deserved vacation for the first time since they got married two and a half years ago.

David and Sam, who have two young boys, have already started to plan their trip. Since they got married, they haven’t even had a chance to get away for a honeymoon. They’ve been together five years and their last vacation was a week in Cornwall, but now the pair can finally afford to go somewhere special: to Australia. And since Sam is expecting another baby, they also made plans to buy a new house.

The surprising win comes after a chance purchase, on Halloween. It’s usually Sam who buys the ticket, but this time David opened the computer to find the National Lottery website opened, so he went ahead and entered the EuroMillions draw. According to online gambling news, he received good news the morning after.

David received an email saying there was good news waiting for him and urging him to check his account. “I usually joke that I am off to check my million when I get the email, but this time I didn’t. I just said to Sam I was off to look at my GBP3,” he said.

He logged on and checked his balance, but it was the same as the day before. In an interview with local reporters, he admitted it took him some time to notice the message which said he had won GBP1 million.

The 32-year-old IT manager said: “This is an amazing opportunity and the more we found out about the trip, the more we realized what a big deal it was. I have been to Australia a couple of times but recently only got abroad for stag weekends. Sam has only ever been on a plane to Leeds, it really is a once in a lifetime chance and I already have the forms to apply for passports for Sam and our boys.”

The pair considered Las Vegas for a honeymoon trip, but since family comes first they didn’t afford it. “We are really family orientated and now being able to share this trip with our children will be even better,” David explained.

David said his wife didn’t believe him when he gave her the good news. She checked the account herself and saw the message was still there, but it wasn’t until they called Camelot – the company authorized to operate the lottery service, under British gambling laws – that it all started to feel real.

A young couple will finally have their honeymoon after winning GPB1 million in the new EuroMillions Mega Friday draw. David and Sam Mackie got married two and a half years ago, but have not even been on a honeymoon or on a trip abroad. The family from Basingstoke, Hampshire will finally be taking a vacation to Australia, together with their two sons.

David, who works as an IT manager, told reporters: “I called my wife but she didn’t believe me. Once she saw my face, and I think I was shaking by this point, she decided to check. We both logged off and back on again to the account and the message was still there. I then had to wait 15 minutes to call Camelot and that was when it started becoming real.”

Mrs. Mackie is currently on maternity leave and the couple will also buy a house for their expanding family. They already signed the paperwork for a new development which they had previously considered, but had been unable to afford until now.

“They had been going quickly and there were only a few plots left. Luckily the one we wanted was still available and we got it. It is amazing to be in that position. I stress about mortgages and money and it is completely life-changing to not to have to worry any longer,” David explained.

British lotto winner ordered to pay £2m to ex wife of 10 years

Nov 25, 2010
£2 million

Back in February, 44 year old Nigel Page won £56 million playing the Euromillions jackpot lotto game. It was the third largest lottery win in British history.

Nigel Page was recently ordered by courts to pay £2m of his winnings to his ex wife, who left him for another man more than ten years ago. Wendy Page, 43, tried to get £8m from the jackpot winner, but settled out of court for a quarter of that amount.

Mr. Page offered to put the £2m into a trust fund for their 13 year old daughter, but the idea was shot down.

The legal president for the case is a rule called the ‘clean break’ clause. It says that says in a divorce situation where one person pays maintenance to the other, the other can ask for a lump sum of money and a clean break rather than taking ongoing payments. It is suspected that if the case went to court, Mr. Page would have been required to pay much less than £2m, but it seems he settled for the number to avoid the hassle of a legal battle.

Meanwhile, Nigel Page has re-married, moved into a £4million house with a private cinema and an indoor swimming pool, and is known to give regularly to local charities.
