There have been several friends winning lottery jackpots recently. Short time ago we brought you the news of two best friends who won £336,277.60 on EuroMillions. That was Carly Wiggett and best friend Becky Witt who took home £168,138.80 each in Friday 22nd March’s draw.
Now it’s the turn of best mates Henry Milne and Joe McKay from Port Glasgow. These guys have been friends for an amazing 38 years. They like nothing more than a pint, a game of darts and to play the lottery together. And it has finally paid off with a win on the National Lottery. The pair now share a lotto fortune of £1.2 million from Saturday 16th March’s draw.
Henry Milne and Joe McKay usually purchase two lines of numbers for the Saturday Lotto draw. On this occasion Henry’s wife Margaret bought them five lines from Cowden’s Newsagent in Greenock. Joe McKay said of their win: “The timing couldn’t be any better. I have worked in the building trade my whole life and it’s only recently that I have found myself unemployed because there’s just nothing out there at the moment. But now I feel as though I can relax a little, knowing that I have some money tucked away to see me and my partner Margaret through.”
And how will the best mates enjoy their new found lottery riches? For Henry Milne it’s a holiday with his wife and for Joe McKay it’s a new car: “I am going to upgrade my car. The old 03 plate Nissan is on its last legs. I don’t know what car I will get, but it will definitely be a much appreciated upgrade.”
We’re guessing they will also celebrate by sinking a few pints as well!
