EuroMillions Jackpot Winners Holiday in Caravan to Celebrate Success – August 16th, 2012
It has been quite a few days for Adrian and Gillian Bayford since they won £148 (€190 million) on the EuroMillions.
The couple from Suffolk only allowed their names to be made public on Tuesday (August 14th), despite the fact they matched five numbers with two lucky stars for the EuroMillions jackpot on August 10th.
And they are not the only people to have gotten their hands on a life-changing sum of money in the past few days. The US Powerball Lotto jackpot was finally won last night after 14 rollovers by a person fromMichiganand they are now $337 million richer, which represents the fourth biggest top prize in the history of the game.
Rather than indulge in a five-star retreat somewhere exotic thanks to their newfound wealth, the Bayfords have kept their feet firmly on the ground and headed to a caravan park in Scotland for their first holiday as millionaires.
It is believed Mrs Bayford’s parents live at the site and so they jumped on an easyJet flight to see them. Speaking to the Daily Mail, the manager of the Barry Downs site in Carnoustie said: “Yes, they are here but they don’t want to be disturbed. They are not giving interviews but they are here on the park.”
The Bayfords must be looking for some time to acclimatise to their newfound wealth before making any flash purchases. Anyone who wants to follow in their footsteps should play the EuroMillions online at theLotter to be in with a chance of winning Friday’s jackpot of £20 million.
Mr Bayford, who runs his own music shop, seems to have lofty ambitions for the money though, as he told the Sun that he would love to reunite the original line-up of seminal rockers Guns N’ Roses.
It is nearly 20 years since Axl Rose and Slash – the lead singer and guitarist respectively – played together, but Mr Bayford is keen to use a portion of his €190 million winnings to finance the project.
Imagine having enough money to make your wildest dreams come true. One can only wonder what the most popular splurge would be?
