Euromillions happenings 2012
Record-Jackpot of over 190 Millionen Euro cracked
In the 510th draw on August 10, 2012, Adrian and Gilian Bayford cracked the greatest euromillions jackpot of all time, the eighteen-million-euromillion jackpot.Tthe British couple and only them had the correct numbers – 11, 17, 21, 48 and 50 as well as lucky 9 and lucky 10 on their lottery ticket. However, because the euro had a very weak exchange rate to the British pound at that time, the winnings amounted to 148.656.000 GBP – which the Bayfords could easily get over with considering the huge sum.
The lucky couple have two children and run a second-hand record store in the small village of Haverhill, which is located in the county of Suffolk. Adrian Bayford bought the winnning ticket in addition to some more tickets and different sweets for his two children in a small shop, which is only a few steps away from his own business. He announced he wanted to invest part of the profit in the expansion of his record store.
