British couple win £1m EuroMilllons lottery twice

David and Kathleen Long, from Scrunthorpe have won £1 million in the EuroMillions lottery for the second time in 2 years.

The couple won their first million in the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle draw on July 26 2013 and struck lucky again in the 27 March Mega Friday draw.

Mr Long said: "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.”

Lottery organisers Camelot said it is an "extraordinary situation" for someone to be fortunate enough to win twice.

Meanwhile, one UK ticketholder won Tuesday night's £53 million EuroMillions jackpot but has yet to claim the prize. Check your EuroMillons tickets…it could be you!
