Unless you are record-breaking Euromillions winner Adrian Bayford, who prefers celebrating with Dominos pizza, then it’s expected that a bottle of bubbly feature in the lotto winning celebrations. Drinking it is of course optional...
Nothing says “I’m King of the World” more so than a bottle of Champagne being sprayed in joyous celebration, whether it's on the podium for a Grand Prix victory or in a photo shoot for a lottery win. There can be no better way of congratulating yourself for a job well done than a good old fashioned hose-down with champagne. On the odd occasion some lotto winners might even manage to drink a few glasses in all the excitement.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 champagne moments from lotto winners around the UK.
Nigel Page and partner Justine celebrate their amazing £56 million Euromillions lotto win with a very admirable spray-fest! Nigel officially became the UK's 980th richest person after the enormous jackpot win. He later went on to make headlines after his ex-wife sued him for a portion of his winnings.
Dave and Angela Dawes
Although he might be more comfortable with a pint of Lager, that never stopped Dave Dawes from giving the bubbly a good seeing to. The couple took home an unbelievable £101 million on Euromillions back in 2011 and promptly made many of their friends instant millionaires.
Colin and Chris Weir
These 2 legendary winners need little introduction to the readers on PlayHugeLottos.com. Colin and Chris Weir were the biggest lottery winners in Europe at the time of their amazing £161 million jackpot win. They have gone on to become charitable angels in their home country of Scotland, donating thousands of Pounds to needy causes.
Ok, so we made a joke in the beginning of this news item about Adrian and his love of Pizza but that didn’t stop him and his wife Gillian from partaking in some Champagne shenanigans of their own. The couple had every right to smile and spray as they had just taken home the world’s biggest Euromillions jackpot win ever, a whopping €190 million.
Adrian’s efforts to continue his day job were eventually destroyed by a constant influx of customers asking for charitable donations. Adrian is now content to stay at home and dream of a Guns ‘n Roses reunion.
Matt and Cassey Topham
At the time of winning £45 million on Euromillions, she was still known by her maiden name Cassey Carington. Thankfully the sudden windfall ensured this loving couple the wedding of their dreams and Cassey took on a new name. The Tophams are now in the process of building their dream home whilst travelling across the USA on a very long vacation.
As its clear to see, nothing goes together quite like a giant jackpot win and a celebratory bottle of champagne. But remember, before you can spray, you have to play!
Give tonight’s $189 Mega Millions jackpot draw a go and you could be popping the bubbly in style.
