EuroMillions Winner Neil Trotter
Neil Trotter - EuroMillions winner
The EuroMillions Superdraw in March 2014 turned into a massive rollover. The 674th Euro Millions game was a Superdraw and took place on Friday 7th March 2014. The winning numbers drawn were 5, 10, 38, 40 and 41, while the Lucky Stars were 1 and 8. By matching five numbers and a single Lucky Star six other players won an impressive £316,429.80 (€453,509.31). However, the £82,990,000 (€100,000,000) jackpot rolled over twice before being won the following week by a single UK ticket holder who took home an impressive £107.9 million.

From Reliant Robin to Racing Cars
The aptly named Neil Trotter was the lucky winner, and had apparently told staff at his father's office on Friday lunchtime, "this time tomorrow" he would be a multi-millionaire. The car mechanic’s father Mr Trotter Snr, is a director of a cat litter company worth more than £2million with a substantial property in south London and sports cars on the drive. Neil is a self-confessed motor racing fanatic having taken part for many years in Hot Rod and Stock Hatch racing, and most recently competed in the BMW Compact Cup. His heart is now set on competing in the high profile British Touring Car Championship.
