Couple wins jackpot at their third attempt

Some people spend an entire lifetime at trying their lucks at winning the lottery and still never win a dime.  Dave Dawes and his partner Angela Dawes are one of those rare winners who have won the lotto jackpot at their third go at the game only.  The lucky couples have won £101 million ($159 million) in the EuroMillions lottery.

It is with a lot of emotions that that the couple recount the day that they found out they were the winners of the jackpot.  While watching the draw live on television, they could not believe that they were the winners and they did several checks on the TV and internet just to make sure that they got the right number. 

Although it was only the following day that they could confirm if they were the winners, they already made plans as to how to spend the money the same night itself.  Their priority currently is to get married and Angela Dawes, a charity shop volunteer, explains that although Dave already bought her an engagement ring, she intends to buy a new one. 

Apart from their wedding, Dave, a shift supervisor at a food producer, wants to buy a house for his parents in Portugal-where they currently reside- as well as buy a luxurious apartment for themselves close to Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge Stadium in one of London’s most exclusive districts.
