Joe and Jess Dwight, who have been struggling with the cost of living so far, can finally ‘dream’ after winning இங்கிலா 184m (CHF222m), the UK’s largest EuroMillions prize money, and have decided to come out of the unknown.
The couple, a 40-year-old couple from the south-west of England, parents of two primary school children, won exactly செவ்வ 184,262,899 on Tuesday, May 10, with the winning numbers being the randomly selected ticket. Some winners want to be prudent, they revealed their identities live on TV.
“This winning result gives us time to dream, which is not before us,” says Jess Dwight, 44, who runs a hair salon with her sister.
He talked about the “biggest relief” and noted that like many others his family had struggled with their bills so far.
‘This is big for us,’ admits her husband Joe, 49, a sales engineer, who usually plays when he’s risking large sums. ‘I turned on the water heater the next day (…) thinking everything was fine. This is unprecedented, ”he said, noting rising energy prices in the United Kingdom.
He discovered that they were the lucky winners of the biggest EuroMillions jackpot ever won in the United Kingdom and the second lucky winner of this lottery, which is offered in ten European countries.
The next day after the shake-up I checked the lottery app and said, ‘I saw the amount. I put the phone down and picked it up again and saw the amount again (…). I started counting the numbers and at that moment I thought it was unusual but unreal.
The couple, who live in a dilapidated house surrounded by many animals including pony, dogs and geckos, explained that they decided to come forward to better share with family and friends.
Jess and Joe Dwight ‘will probably’ buy a new car and take their kids to Hawaii for the holidays, where they will always want to go.
An anonymous player won £ 170m in the UK in October 2019, while the largest Euromillions jackpot was won in October 2021 in France at 220m.
