UK builder Steve Thomson wins £ 105 million (over $ 135 million) in the EuroMillions national lottery, Sky News reported on Tuesday, November 26. The draw took place on November 19.
“It seemed to me that I was on the verge of a heart attack,” said Thomson about his emotions when he found out about the win.
42-year-old Steve Thomson is from West Sussex and has three children. His win is the ninth largest in the history of the lottery.
Answering a question about what he plans to spend money on, the man said that his 10-year-old son dreams of a Tesla car, and his 8-year-old daughter asked for a pink iPhone. In addition, the family needs a more spacious house.
“To give each child their own room is a big deal,” he said.
October 9, another resident of Great Britain won £ 170 million (€ 190 million) in the EuroMillions and became the owner of the largest jackpot in the country.
