We told you last month about a French and a Spanish lottery player who shared a EuroMillions jackpot of €130 million. Matching all of the numbers in the lottery draw on Tuesday, 7th January 2014, each winner took home a massive €65 million to end the European lottery’s run of 10 consecutive draws without a winner.
At the time of writing, neither of the lucky lottery players has come forward to claim their prizes; however the French winner has now gone public about what he plans to do with his lottery winnings.
Starting off the New Year with a bang, the man, whose name has not been disclosed, says that his first plan with the lottery money is to buy a new home for himself and his family, as well as a farmhouse or holiday home in Provence, one of the most beautiful parts of southern France. Going from making less than the minimum wage in France, the lottery winner is now one of the 500 richest people in France, so there is no doubt that buying a luxury holiday home will be well within his means.
But that isn’t all that he plans to do with his lottery fortune. Taking advantage of the fact that he is no longer compelled to work, the mystery French lottery player says that he is planning to buy a luxury campervan and take his family on a holiday following the next Tour de France. That will mean a visit to the UK, as the 2014 Tour de France will start in Yorkshire on July 5th before taking in parts of Belgium and taking in the South of France, finishing on Sunday, 27th July 2014 in the Paris Champs-Élysées.
Fancy taking a luxury trip such as this one? You’ve got to be in it to win it, the EuroMillions jackpot currently stands at £12 million for the next draw on Tuesday, 18th February. Could it be a lucky lottery draw for you? Purchase your EuroMillions lottery tickets online at Lottery24.com.
