George Muir and his partner of 28 years, Sandra McCormack, say those luxury treats that they have always dreamt about will now become a reality after winning £145,757.50. 

Although the couple do not plan to retire straight away, the win will let them retire much earlier than they had planned.

George, 60, works for a hydrogen renewable energy company. He only purchased his winning ticket online a few hours before the draw took place on Friday, May 3.

He said: “I always play a month in advance and always purchase my EuroMillions tickets online.

“It was 3pm on the Friday when I suddenly remembered I hadn’t bought my ticket.

“I always go for a EuroMillions Lucky Dip so I did just that.”

George and Sandra, 64, who works in a supermarket, returned home the day after the draw as they had been out to celebrate their 28th wedding anniversary and had no idea they had won.

It was the following day that George checked his emails.

He added: “I was just scrolling, as you do, when I came to an email from The National Lottery telling me that there was news about my ticket.

“I just assumed that if I had won something that it would be a few pounds so I didn’t rush to log in and check.

“I actually went on to the National Lottery website to look at the numbers just for the novelty value and then, to my total disbelief, I discovered I had matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number!

“I literally dropped my phone! My heart was beating so fast.”

The winning EuroMillions numbers for the draw Friday May 3, were 6, 9, 10, 30, 49 and the Lucky Stars were 3 and 4. George matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number (3).
