Charlotte Peart from Whittlesey near Peterborough in England played a prank on her husband a few weeks ago claiming she’d won a £250,000 lottery prize. Now there’s no need to be joking because she won £1m in the August 28 EuroMillions HotPicks draw.
When finding out about her EuroMillions HotPicks win, Mrs Peart, 28, quickly got on the phone to tell her husband the big news. He answered and said, “I can’t talk to you right now love,” and handed the phone to his brother. Eventually she got to speak to her husband, Daniel Peart, 27, who recalled the moment when Charlotte called him with the news of her EuroMillions HotPicks win. He said: “I didn’t believe her at all because we like to wind each other up.”
It was only when his wife showed him a screenshot of the message from the National Lottery that told her of the EuroMillions HotPicks win that he realised she was telling the truth. When Welshman Wayne Rowles won a £1m EuroMillions prize he thought his brother had planted a fake ticket in his house.
Mr Peart is a self-employed carpenter just like Aaron Fawden from Warwickshire in England, who recently won £1m in a EuroMillions draw. Leonardo Pizzara from Canada is a retired carpenter and he landed the $50,000 top prize in the Quest for Gold Crossword scratch card game.
The EuroMillions HotPicks win came about when Mrs Peart used the last £1.50 in their online lottery account. Taryn and Grant Hawes from Cornwall used the last £2 in their account to win £1m playing UK Lotto.
The couple, who have three children together and own a three-bedroom home, now plan to use some of their EuroMillions HotPicks win to buy a larger house in the area. In Ireland a family who won €7m playing the Irish Lotto draw said they wanted to buy a dream house with an indoor slide. David Pouchelu from Canada bought a mobile home after his $1m Lotto Max win.
“With a family of five it gets a little cramped. All the kids have earned their own bedrooms, they’re all excited about that and we’re looking forward to the next adventure in our lives,” said Daniel.
“The biggest thing for us is we get to spend more time as a family and we don’t have to worry so much as what we’re used to now,” he added.
