When the Hendry family found out that they’d won the lottery, they did what most players all over the world do to celebrate … they went out to celebrate with McDonalds?! Well, alright, it’s not what most players would do to celebrate a win, but they did find out around breakfast time and where decidedly hungry at the time.
Sales engineer David 45, and his wife Donna 44, hail from Edinburgh and discovered that they were winners around 6.30am last Thursday. David had checked the numbers on his mobile phone and confidently claims:
"I knew immediately I had won the jackpot as I knew the numbers off by heart. I told Donna first who obviously didn't believe me until I showed her our ticket. It's been 21 years in November since we've been putting the numbers on. We've been doing the same numbers since the day it came out and now we've won," he said.
And what exactly are the Hendry’s winning number selection comprised of? A mixed combination of family birthday dates of course. David even claims that he played this series of draws three weeks in advance at his local post office so as to not miss any draws over the Christmas period. The family lives in a 2 bedroom house on the outskirts of Edinburgh and are as yet undecided as to how they will spend their winnings, or whether or not to give up work. What they are sure of is that they do wish to purchase a new family car.
“I don't honestly know at this time what car I'll get next. I've got a family so it might be a family car. It's too early to say what we are going to do with the money, and it's a lot to take in. It's got to look after us for the rest of our lives."
A huge Elvis fan, David would also like a trip to Graceland to visit the King of Rock’s home in Tennessee, and conveniently also won his jackpot on what would have been Elvis’ 80th birthday. So to celebrate the 18 year long married couple sang all his songs in the car on Thursday. Their lucky winning ‘birthday numbers’ were 4, 5, 10, 12, 20, 23, and the Bonus Ball of 24.
