An English couple won their first EuroMillions win of £1,000,002.70 on the 26th of July, 2013. Shortly after, they tied the knot after being engaged for 12 whole years. Just two years later, luck struck again as they won yet another £1 Million as well as a car. This is due to EuroMillions having a ‘Mega Friday Draw’ - the lottery was offering 10 lots of £1 Million in prizes as well as a car. So, they got to choose their dream car which was quite tough as they wanted either the Range Rover Autobiography or a Jaguar F-Type.
