The pan-European lottery EuroMillions holds a unique position among other games. The word "pan-European" means "uniform for several European countries". This is one of the advantages of EuroMillions: several states form its prize pool. That’s why its ultimate prize is so big. So, how much is EuroMillions Jackpot today? It can range from 17 to 190 million euros! Isn’t it impressive?
We already wrote about EuroMillions here. In this article, we’re going to tell you some interesting, amazing and funny facts about the game, as well as to publish the interview with a lottery winner and answer some essential questions.
Normally, lottery winners don’t like to talk much about their life, except for Matt Myles, a 30-year-old EuroMillions winner from the UK. He interacts with journalists and engages over Twitter and Instagram willingly.
Recently, Matt and his girlfriend Stacy went to India to celebrate the anniversary of the big win. After that, they went on a round-the-world trip. Before the trip, Matt gave an interview to the official representatives of UK Lotto.
Let's find out how the lottery winner is doing now and how the tremendous windfall has changed his life.
— Two days before the trip. How do you feel?
Awesome. We fly to Delhi in the morning. I’m exhausted with impatience.
— By the way, congrats on the anniversary!
Thanks. Every year, I celebrate the anniversary in a special way. In the first year, I went to Dubai. In the past year, I bought a car. This year, I will bring my family and friends together in the very cafe where we celebrated my lottery win. After that, we together with the girl I love will start our a world trip. It's so strange to recall 2014. No one slept that night. Tremendous flashback…
— Your route is terrific: India, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, USA, and South America. The number and diversity of countries is tremendous. Was it difficult to plan everything?
When I turned 30, I decided that I would spend this year traveling. My girlfriend works with children in the National Health Service. This is a very responsible job. A couple of days ago she got a leave and we made a route with a list of places that we want to see in every country. We’re already dying of impatience.
— What do you want to see most?
I was fortunate enough to have a rest in Bali and Thailand already, but I was in Australia only for business purposes. Now I dream to spend a vacation there. Also, I can’t wait to see some places of the Southeast Asia, such as Vietnam. I think the Philippines must be cool. We’ll spend Christmas in Sydney. We’re so happy!
— Are you going to stay in 5-star hotels and stuff?
No, this tour will be low-cost. We will take backpacks and stay at hostels so that I can get the right tourist experience.
