Couple wins lottery

They say lightning never strikes twice in the same place; however it appears that when it comes to lotteries, it is all very much possible!

A former truck driver said today he was ‘shocked’ to win again but continued buying a ticket after their first million-pound win because ‘I just knew it would be my turn again someday’. Millionaires David and Kathleen Long have first won the secondary £1 Million prize back in 2013 after David, a truck driver at the time, through the winning ticket to the bin and nearly did not claim the grand amount. He then ‘had the urge to fish it out’ and was shocked to discover it was worth £1 Million. The former truck driver said he was ‘shocked’ to win again but continued buying a ticket after their first million-pound win because ‘I just knew it would be my turn again someday’.

After their first win- David and Kathleen Long

 

Millionaires David and Kathleen Long have first won the secondary £1 Million prize back in 2013 after David, a truck driver at the time, through the winning ticket to the bin and nearly did not claim the grand amount. He then ‘had the urge to fish it out’ and was shocked to discover it was worth £1million. The former truck driver said he was ‘shocked’ to win again but continued buying a ticket after their first million-pound win. The have announced their win at their local pub in Scunthorpe, UK where they put on a free bar for all their family and friends today. So how rare is it to win the EuroMillions secondary prize twice? Odds are 283 BILLION to one! One cannot possibly win though, without buying a Euromillions ticket first.

Millionaire David Long, 57 said earlier today-’I always knew I’d win, even the first time. I just had a feeling’. With their wealth now doubled, they can swap their bungalow for a seven-bedroom mansion with swimming pool and up to 20 acres of land. Mr. Long, who has been previously married, said: ‘We don’t have a champagne lifestyle. We still live in a mobile home. We have been there for 13 years in our caravan. That is changed now though, we are planning on moving somewhere else. We’ve had a bit of luck. It doesn’t have to be a big mansion, it just has to have a games room and a bar for me.’

With their last winnings they bought Mr. Long’s mother a mobile caravan. He said: ‘I bought her a mobile home when we won the first time round. We have lived in one ourselves for 13 years so we bought one so she can live right next to us.’

David and Kathleen Long after their latest win, is it the last of it?

 

The couple, who just got married last year after 18 years together and does not have any mutual children, then checked the numbers on the morning following Last Friday’s draw. Mrs. Long had screamed: ‘You said you’d do it again and you have!’ Mr. Long followed by saying- ‘you never know, they say things come in threes, don’t they?’ he said. ‘Third time lucky and all that…’

Later on added- ‘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. Got to be worth a few lines and I got five using my usual numbers’

The success of the Longs shows that anything is possible for the EuroMillions fans that now have a chance to win a fortune this Friday, when the jackpot will stand at £10 million (€15 million). The top prize was won in Tuesday’s draw as a UK player matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars to land €73 million and ended a run of six rollovers!

The very much content David long later on said-’You never know. You’ve just got to believe that one day you’re going to do it. We’ve done it. To believe we’re going to do it again. It’s happened. Could it be a third time?’
