Brit couple wins £45 million in lottery

London , Fri, 10 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 10 (ANI): A British man, who works as a painter and decorator, won more than 45 million-pound in Euromillions draw, along with his fiancee.


Matt Topham and Cassey Carrington, both 22, scooped the jackpot on Tuesday draw after "feeling lucky" as Carrington had earlier won a bonus at Iceland, the supermarket where she works as a supervisor.


The couple from Nottingham said that the win, the seventh largest in the UK, had yet to sink in.


However, the pair who plan to marry in September, have already made a list of things to buy and people to help.


While Carrington wants to buy an Aston Martin and design her own home, Topham plans to take flying lessons.


Both want to buy their parents new homes or pay off their mortgages.


Carrington said that she decided to splash out on tickets after staff at her store won a 10,000-pound prize to share.


"I just felt fairly lucky that day so from then on I just thought 'I feel a bit of luck'. Having played (the lottery) not very often - I'd won 10 pounds twice - I thought, 'Seeing as I'm feeling a little bit lucky 10 pounds will help us,' so I decided to give it a go," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.


She set up an online account last Friday with 5 pounds but did not win so she ended up spending remaining 3 pounds on Saturday's Lotto and a line for Tuesday's EuroMillions draw, which turned out to be the winner.


The young couple, who have been together for three years, have been saving for their wedding since June.


"I have often painted these huge houses and wondered what it would be like to live in one, now I can find out," he said.


The couple's wedding will now be a more lavish affair than originally planned, they said, but the bride-to-be said she would not change her engagement ring or her dress because they are so close to her heart.


"We're really happy for them. It couldn't have happened to nicer people, they're a lovely couple," Topham's father, Brian, said.


"He rang yesterday morning to tell me. I believed him straight away because we don't tell lies in this house.


"The night before his washer and computer had broken down.


"He had come round here to get a fuse, he couldn't believe his bad luck because they're trying to save for their wedding in September," he added. (ANI)
