The couple claimed to playing Powerball and Mega Millions since 1975, particularly when the jackpots are very high.

They purchased their winning ticket from a convenience store.  They plan to spend their newly found windfall on an RV, donations to schools and charities, and maybe a sports car.

EuroMillions Winner Goes Three Weeks Without Claiming Prize

EuroMillions Winner Jacqui Shannon
EuroMillions Winner Jacqui Shannon

Charity patron Jacqui Shannon didn’t realize she had won approximately €1.2 million on the EuroMillions lottery for three weeks after ignoring a important prize email.

Jacqui had assumed a “news about your ticket” email only meant she had won a small prize.

Jacqui Shannon, 46 from Witham, Essex said: “I play online and tend to buy a few weeks-worth at a time, which is what I had done on this occasion, using £25 from a previous win.

“When I saw the email telling me I’d had a win I assumed it was something small so just didn’t get around to checking it.
Jacqui Shannon got lucky on the EuroMillions Millionaire Maker game after playing online.

“Had I known I was a millionaire for those weeks, I wouldn’t have had to worry about how we were going to get my car its MoT.”
Jacqui had realized she’d won while going through her emails one morning at her office.

“I was at work one morning, getting ready for the day ahead, when I remembered to log into my account to see what the win was.”
“I was chatting to my colleague and not really paying attention to my lottery account. When I saw the first message in my account was alerting me that I’d won a Lucky Dip I assumed that was the win, until I read the second message which was about a £1million win.

“I calmly said to my colleague, ‘sorry, could you hold that thought’ and ran out of the room into the corridor to ring Camelot.”
Jacqui immediately verified the win and rang her husband of 16 years thereafter. “I have to admit I went a little crazy in the corridor – leaping about and squealing – and then went back to my desk as calmly as possible, deciding I didn’t want to tell anyone until the money really was in my bank account.

“It was certainly one occasion when my schoolgirl drama training came in handy, as I did my level-best to look calm and collected while inside I was screaming ‘I’m a millionaire’.”

Jacqui is already making plans on how to spend the money, she will be visiting her sister in Dubai and she is eyeing a new BMW for hubby Peter, 54, and a Mini for herself.

She added: “I’ve always played the lottery hoping to win but also because I know first-hand how many charities in the UK benefit from lottery funding.

“Never did I dream this would happen but now it has, I fully intend to live the dream.

“I’ve no plans to give up work yet, although I do recognise that this is an opportunity to think about other career options.”

EuroMillions Continues To Make Dreams Come True

Tonight’s Euromillions‘ jackpot draw will be worth €28,000,000, like Jacqui, all it takes is one ticket to turn your luck around. Play consistently and go for the win.
