History of EuroMillions
The idea for EuroMillions began in 1994 to celebrate the launch of the single currency in Europe. Bureaucracy and politics delayed the launch of the EuroMillions until February 13, 2004.
To begin with there were three European organisers – Camelot from the UK, Francaise des Jeux in France and Loterias y Apuestas des Estad in Spain. On October 8, the same year, other European countries including Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland joined the EuroMillions lottery.
Initially the jackpot had no cap but in 2009 a €190 million cap was placed on the jackpot. Due to the EuroMillions enormous popularity, the Tuesday draw was introduced in 2011, although the Friday draw is still the most played.
EuroMillions Lottery Results and Winners
The largest EuroMillions jackpot win was won by a British couple, Adrian and Gillian Bayford on 10th August 2012 – they won a massive €190 million.
Sadly, for the Bayfords their enormous win did not make them happy. Initially Adrian carried on working in the music store he had owned for years and Gillian said she would continue to shop for bargains. They celebrated their win by taking their two small children on a caravan holiday. Adrian finally had to give up his beloved music store because he was tired of people coming in and asking for handouts.
Adrian then employed a very attractive female Polish bodyguard and apparently fell in love with her but she rejected him. Adrian and Gillian have now parted, with Gillian living in Scotland with their two children and a car salesman while Adrian began to live with a stable girl, 16 years younger than him. That relationship eventually came to an end as well. Adrian said, “When you win the lottery, it’s so stressful.” Adrian said he spent so much time doing up the grounds of their £6 million mansion that he barely saw his wife and they just grew apart.
In July 2011 Chris and Colin Weir, again from the UK, won €185 million and because of a favourable exchange rate, they actually won more in sterling than the Bayfords.
