Biggest EuroMillions winners

Biggest Euromillions Winners

Posted by Vicky-Leandra Barnard | winners

A beloved European lottery, the EuroMillions has grown in popularity since its inception in February 2004. And has made many a millionaire. Here we take a look at the biggest EuroMillions winners and where they are now.

The biggest EuroMillions winners

Chris and Colin Weir

In 2011, Colin Weir and his wife Chris won 161million pounds (roughly 2,9 billion rand) from the EuroMillions lottery. The lucky couple immediately splurged on a magnificent mansion, a checked sports jacket, a computer and a tractor. The Scottish locals have now sold the mansion in favour of an even bigger one.

Adrian & Gillian Bayford

Adrian Bayford and his then-wife Gillian won £148 million (roughly R2,7 billion) from the EuroMillions in 2012. While he initially quit his job in favour of opening a film and record memorabilia store, Adrian claimed he was “bored” and went back to work.

Unfortunately for these two, they didn’t really have a happy ever after the way the Weirs did. After getting divorced, things just went downhill for the Bayfords. In February 2017, Adrian’s younger girlfriend left him and in the space of just a few weeks, his house was burgled and he lost £100,000 (roughly R1,8 million).

Meanwhile, Gillian has been accused of being a liar by her own father after he told reporters he “only received £1million" from her, even though she claimed she gave him £20 million (roughly R368 million). "Gillian's whole life is shredded with lies. Her life is a total mess – a fabrication," the 71-year-old Ian McCulloch said.

Catherine & Gareth Bull

After winning £41 million (roughly R756 million) in 2012, the couple joked that they were “boring multimillionaires.” Catherine wanted a new carpet for the home Gareth had just built and to have her hair done twice a year, but Gareth went ahead and splurged on a huge hospitality box at Old Trafford and another at Wembley. Catherine then gave up her job and he closed his building company.

After the couple split, Gareth made headlines when he started dating a woman named Donna Desporte (48). He got her interested in him by telling her to "Google" him when he met her in a bar in Tenerife. However, Donna told the press that after their nine-month fling he completely ignored her and now she doesn’t hear from him anymore.

Jane Park

When 17-year-old Jane Park won £1million (roughly R18 million) in 2013, she became Britain's youngest lottery winner. Although she only won £1million from the EuroMillions, she's definitely the most infamous winner.

After winning, Jane splurged on cars, holidays, houses, clothes and plastic surgery – a far cry from the life she was used to as an admin temp living in a two-bedroom council flat she shared with her mother.

But besides being one of the luckiest young adults in Britain, Jane says that winning the lottery was the worst thing that could have happened to her and that being a millionaire is stressful. “I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life?” she told Sunday People.

"I thought it would make [my life] ten times better but it’s made it ten times worse.

"I wish I had no money most days. I say to myself, 'My life would be so much easier if I hadn’t won'."

The Davies Family

The Davies family won £61millions (roughly over R1 billion) on the EuroMillions in 2016.

53-year-old mum Sonia Davies phoned her daughter Stephanie Davies (23) from the US, where she was having vital keyhole surgery done to remove a tumour, and begged her to buy a lottery card, which Stephanie reluctantly did. Sonia was convinced that she would be on a lucky streak once her surgery was a success.

The Welsh family said they were the "luckiest people on the planet" after winning £61million. But even they could not avoid controversy, as it was believed that father of the family Keith, 55, would share the money with his 3 daughters from a previous relationship. It was also reported that Sonia’s estranged son Spencer Pugh would not get a cent.

Bev Doran

Bev Doran won £14 millions (roughly R258 million) from the EuroMillion early in 2017, but the lucky winner didn’t really have time to enjoy her win amid fears that the broke father of her children would try and lay claim to the winnings. "He doesn't deserve a single penny of it. She's getting advice at the moment and that's one area she's looking at," a friend said.

NHS dinner ladies

A Group of NHS dinner ladies known as The "Catering Girls" quit their jobs after winning a £25 million (roughly R461 million) jackpot in November 2017. The 6 ladies have been playing together for six years at their hospital in Wales. They said they were going to have “one hell of a Christmas.”

The great thing about betting on LottoStar is that no one needs to know who you are – you can keep your win a total secret and stay out of the limelight, avoiding potential leeches. Bet now on the EuroMillions on LottoStar and stand the chance of winning up to R225 MILLION!
