While Portsmouth FC battle to get promotion this season, a second of their fans has won a big lottery prize. Jason Jagodzinsk has won a £1m prize in the EuroMillions draw following in the footsteps of recent £100,000 National Lottery Red scratch card winner Tanya Smith.
The 38-year-old purchased his winning EuroMillions ticket from the Co-Op on Highlands Road in Fareham, Hampshire. When discovering his win, he was ‘completely stunned’ and then had a little jump around to celebrate with the other shoppers joining in.
The lucky EuroMillions winner has plenty of plans for his windfall. He’s not entirely certain what his next step will be but after his big EuroMillions win, he is excited that ‘whatever I decide, the money is there to give me the freedom and security to do it.’
However, he does plan some ‘silliness,’ in the future. That includes taking his family to Disneyland. That’s what the recent winner of a €500,000 EuroMillions Plus prize also plans to do. He also plans to upgrade his car and wants to get a Ford Focus RS.
The EuroMillions winner is a big fan of English League One side Portsmouth and he’s already looking forward to next season, when he and his brother will be watching them from the posh seats at Fratton Park. Welshman Matthew Evans wanted to attend lots of sporting events after his £2.6m UK Lotto jackpot win.
His EuroMillions win comes just weeks before his birthday at the end of March and he believes his luck increases in the run-up to his big day. ‘This time it’s more than turned, it’s gone through the roof,’ said the EuroMillions winner. In the USA, Claude G from Colorado won a $90m Powerball jackpot just days after his birthday.
Despite finding out about his big EuroMillions win, Jason still went to his job at a local aggregates business. Luis Vela Figueroa from New York State, USA, also went to work after finding out he’d won the $2,500 A Week For Life scratch card game top prize.
The area was hit by heavy snow and his boss decided to finish work early. None of the staff wanted to leave though until he’d received the phone call confirming his EuroMillions win. When the call finally came through, he gave the thumbs up and everyone cheered. “I don’t mind saying I had tears in my eyes,” he said.
