Twitter’s brilliant reaction to Armagh couple’s £115m EuroMillions win

An Armagh couple have scooped a staggering £115m on the EuroMillions and social media has gone into meltdown…sort of.

The couple, whose identity will be revealed later this morning, after correctly predicting all the numbers in the New Year’s Day draw.

The lucky pair will start 2019 with an additional £114,969,755.70 in their bank.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “Imagine kicking off the new year with an extra £114m to your name.

“What an amazing win and year ahead for one lucky UK ticket-holder. This win ranks at number four in the list of the biggest ever National Lottery winners and we look forward to helping them begin to enjoy their win.”

The biggest UK lottery winners to date are Colin and Chris Weir, who took home more than £161m in 2011.
