Peter Fry, 90, his wife Mary, 86, and their three daughters play in a family syndicate and enter five lines in every draw to boost their chances of winning without having to splash out more cash. Daughter Margaret had previously snapped up £20,000 on the Lotto Millionaire Raffle last year, while Peter’s cousin Annette Brown scooped a £1.1 million share of the Lotto jackpot back in October 2010, but their latest big win has still been warmly received.
Peter and Mary’s large family includes six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, and they will all now be able to look forward to an even brighter future. As they were presented with their cheque earlier this week, Margaret said: “My mum and dad will be able to buy their house and make changes which will help my mum who struggles to get about. I think my sisters and I need to let it all sink in a bit more before we even start thinking about what we're going to buy."
Cousin Annette, 82, also admitted that it was quite remarkable for someone else in the family to win such a lot following her good fortune six years ago. She said: “I'm so happy for Peter - it couldn't have happened to a better man and talk about keeping it in the family. Winning the National Lottery made my life so much easier and I hope it's the same for him. I can't wait to see him and celebrate our luck together in person."
The Lotto Millionaire Raffle guarantees that at least one player will win £1 million in every draw even if the jackpot rolls over. The Lotto jackpot has not been given away since the draw on Wednesday 18th May when a single ticket holder snatched £6.1 million. There will be £15 million up for grabs this Saturday, plus more great prizes in the Lotto Millionaire Raffle. Millions of players are sure to get involved, possibly even more members of Peter and Mary’s family, and you can buy tickets online or from authorised retailers. Good luck!
