Date: June 3, 2023 Time: 10:14:01

Last Tuesday, January 10, a lucky person validated the winning ticket with ‘El Millón’, an additional EuroMillions draw that is played, randomly, twice a week, in the town of Torrelodones (Madrid). If this Friday there is still no winner, the pot will continue to grow. Let’s remember that the maximum so far has been 230 million euros, but it could be exceeded according to the Euromillions rules.

The chances offered by this raffle each week are vast, although the odds of actually winning are only one in 139,838,160 options. However, there are lucky people who managed to turn their lives around completely. That’s what Ade Goodchild lives for. He is the winner of the European Euromillions draw when in 2019 he managed to win a millionaire jackpot of more than 71 million euros. This prize is very similar to the one that is raffled this Friday, which has reached 65 million euros for a single winner.

His case was surprising since after 24 years working in a metallurgical factory in the British town of Hereford, he chose to leave his job and retire early. Not only that, just a year and a half before he had separated from his now ex-wife, who did not hesitate to say a few words to him after hearing the news.

How the EuroMillions winner will spend the money

The 58-year-old man had only been divorced from his wife for 18 months and told the British National Lottery that he was very happy to be able to change his life with this fortune. “I read the prize amount again and realized it was actually 71 million and only one winner, me,” he said. In fact, he became the 15th biggest winner in UK lottery history.

The first thing Ade Goodchild did was call her relatives who could not assimilate the emotion: “I told my parents that they can stop saving now and spend my inheritance,” they report from the BBC. Later, he told his ex-wife the news, which at first he didn’t believe, thinking it was a joke. Both of them were married for 20 years but after this time I felt that he had become very selfish and did not contribute in basic household chores. Goodchild says he and his former wife are on good terms and don’t have any kind of conflict.

Suzanna Jeffcott said she would now receive more interest from women. Despite this, she does not regret the breakup and she was glad that she would not have to work again in the future. “I’m not going to turn around and say I deserve it too. We’ve had our lives together, we’ve broken up, and now he’s made this money, so good luck to him, but he’s got to watch out for potential gold diggers looking to take advantage “, they pointed out in El Sol.

Ade Goodchild revealed that he wants to spend the money on a new house with a pool, jacuzzi and staff to take care of him, as well as trips, sporting events and four new luxury cars.
