Recent EuroMillions Winner Looking Forward to No More Shift Work

The recent EuroMillions winner of £71m jackpot from the March 15 draw has been revealed as Ade Goodchild, a factory worker from Hereford, England.

15th Largest UK Win

It was on Saturday when he had a sudden urge to check the EuroMillions results, something he usually doesn’t do until Monday. Initially, he thought he’d only won a fiver but then believed it was £71,000.

After seeing his ticket had matched all the numbers drawn, his next thought was that there had been plenty of players sharing the jackpot. Only when he put his glasses on to double-check, did he realize he was the £71m EuroMillions jackpot winner.

The recent EuroMillions winner celebrated by watching his beloved Wales win the Six Nations title and the Grand Slam. Instead of a slap-up meal, he stuck to his favourite takeaway pizza.

Time to Relax in a Hammock

He’s already quit his job at the local metal factory for the past 24 years. The lucky winner plans to buy a new home, one that has a jacuzzi and a swimming pool. It’ll have a big garden too, that’s for his dogs and him to relax in a hammock. He’ll be on the look-out for some staff to help him. He joked that he could “get used” to having a driver “and even my own cook.”

The £71m EuroMillions jackpot winner won’t be spending all his time relaxing at home. The EuroMillions winner plans on doing plenty of travelling. On his bucket list are watching rugby and cricket along with trips to see the Grand Canyon and the pyramids in Egypt.

Caring for his Family

Looking after his family is also important to him. He’s already told his parents “they can stop saving now and can spend my inheritance.” His overall prize was £71,057,439 and that makes it the 15th biggest lottery win in UK history. The winning ticket was successful in matching 03-15-24-42-46 and the two Lucky Stars 09 and 12.
