Prepare yourself for the most chaotic way to win a £1m EuroMillions prize you’ll read this year. Rachel Bingham from Bourne in Lincolnshire, England, had a day where finding out about her big win was the only thing that went right.
Medical secretary Rachel, 46, had forgotten her mobile, hadn’t brushed her hair and admits to being in a “bit of a daydream.” When she went to McColls to check her August 28 EuroMillions ticket, her legs turned to jelly when she was told to go to the Post Office as her win was too big to pay out.
Bingham did just that and was told her EuroMillions ticket had won £1m and a luxury holiday on a private island, Song Saa in South East Asia. Another luxury holiday winner thanks to the EuroMillions was John Edmond from Scotland. Last October, lottery players George and Sandra Kinghorn also won a trip to a luxury island.
Rachel was advised to sign the back of her ticket, but had also forgotten her glasses. A post office assistant had to put their fingers where she needed to sign. Then she wanted to call her husband but didn’t have her mobile with her and couldn’t remember his work number. “Looking back it was all a bit daft” she said.
Finally she did contact Rob, 46, who works at Towngate Tyres in Market Deeping but the chaos continued. Now Rachel had forgotten where she’d parked her car, eventually she found it and returned home to see her husband.
Lincolnshire is a lucky place to play EuroMillions. David and Kathleen Long have won two £1m prizes playing the EuroMillions lottery game. Lottery winners Malcolm Taylor and Mary Connor won £209,614 in March of this year.
Rachel has two daughters from a previous marriage. Emily, 23, is getting married soon so the couple have bought her a wedding dress and will pay for renovations on her new home. They’ll have a great wedding just like Mark Tyson and Jenna O’Hagan from Newquay, England, who could plan their dream wedding thanks to their lottery windfall.
Louise, 18 has been given a Fiat 500 car and Rachel’s parents have been treated to a holiday. Now the couple want to relax and work out what to buy for themselves.
