Some people are just plain lucky, no other way to say it. Jane Park, from Midlothian, managed to win the Millionaires Raffle jackpot with her very first EuroMillions ticket on Friday, July 26 at the tender age of 17.
The membership development assistant at the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organizations, just “decided” to go over to a local newsagent for a lucky dip ticket. To make it more interesting, right after purchasing her ticket, she began telling friends that she could be sitting on a million pounds. When her prophetic statement came true, even she had a hard time believing the stroke of luck that came her way.
Now she plans to buy a house, a customized range rover, and a Hibs season ticket. She is level-headed enough to know she wants to continue working.
Here’s hoping she manages her fortune well.
