A couple from Luton won 11 Millions playing the UK National Lotto On-Line
Martyn White and wife Sandra were finishing off their packing for a week-long vacation to Italy when they learnt that they had won 10,784,075 Lotto Jackpot in the April 8th drawing.
"It was Saturday and we were leaving for our flight so I switched on my computer first thing to double check our flights and to see whether there were any delays. Whilst looking, I saw there was an email saying I was a winner. I thought lovely - that will go in the holiday kitty. I wasn't going to check but intrigue got the better of me and I logged onto my account. It took me ages to spot the amount and even then I thought the email was wrong. Next I checked the winning numbers and recognised them all... it began to dawn on me that it wasn't a mistake and that we actually hit the Jackpot!”
Martyn, a sales manager for a vehicle electronics company, hopes to take early retirement whilst Sandra plans to swap her pastoral role at her local school for that of interior designer once they have found their dream home. "We are hoping to buy something nearby as we have lived here all our life and have lots of friends locally. I have always wanted a swimming pool and can't wait to start planning the interior decoration of our new pad when we find it."
