Not every winner decides to reveal their identity but we do get told some amazing stories, sometimes even in those cases. Here’s three of the best.

Tahiti Triumph

We don’t know who won €220 million in October 2021 but it’s the only EuroMillions jackpot win in Tahiti. It’s part of French Polynesia and the winner was a young woman playing for the very first time. The anonymous winner wanted to go travelling and see snow for the first time. No fancy shoes though as she wished to remain barefoot.

Going Public

Their £184.26 million win was the largest in the UK at the time. Joe and Jess Thwaite from Gloucester, England, took the brave decision to go public with their win. They simply didn’t want to “burden” their friends with keeping their secret. Purchases include a £650,000 new home and a second-hand Volvo.

Fighting climate change

The first ever winner of a €200 million EuroMillions jackpot put his win to good use. The French winner known simply as “Guy” set up Anyama which is a foundation set up to fight climate change.
