£57.97M WINNING EUROMILLIONS TICKET INITIALLY TORN UP

Fred and Lesley Higgins from Laurencekirk in Aberdeenshire, Scotland are celebrating winning a near £58m EuroMillions jackpot but initially they were told their ticket wasn’t a winner and it was torn in half.

The couple won their EuroMillions jackpot in the July 10 draw as their ticket matched 03-08-26-33-45 and the two Lucky Stars 07 and 10. But when Mr Higgins checked his ticket, the store assistant said it wasn’t a winner, tore the ticket in half and threw it in the bin. Then the scanner told them to contact Camelot, so it had to be rescued from the bin.

Fred, 67, rushed home to check the results and when discovering the EuroMillions jackpot win thought it was only £5.7m. He woke up his wife, 57, and she checked the result and they’d won 57,975,367.

Mr Higgins, called Camelot and explained what had happened. A security team had to examine the CCTV footage of the moment a EuroMillions jackpot winning ticket was torn in half.

Meanwhile the couple kept their EuroMillions ticket by putting it in an envelope in a filing cabinet. Mrs Higgins wrote on the envelope in red letters “Money Worries Over!” A recent €4.3m Irish Lotto winning ticket was kept in a plastic bag.

The ticket remained there for a week and the only person they told about their EuroMillions win was their daughter.

Fred is already retired but his account manager wife has now quit her job just like Luis Vela Figueroa from New York who won the top prize in the $2,500 A Week For Life scratchcard game. Vela Figueroa of Brentwood in New York State took over a month to collect his top prize in the $2,500 A Week For Life scratch card game. In Canada, David Primmer said he’s never worked so hard since he won $4m playing Lotto Max.

The EuroMillions winners celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary this month and are looking at buying an overseas property, possibly Gozo where Fred’s niece lives, though France and Barbados are also on the shortlist. It’s the latest big Scottish win but not quite as large as the £161m EuroMillions jackpot won by Colin and Chris Weir.

This couple have already made their first purchase, a brand-new Audi Cabriolet. A bit more glamorous than the Slurpee that $7m Lotto 6/49 winner Wayne Martin bought. More to Mr Higgins taste is adding to his collection of malt whisky.
