Speaking at a celebratory press conference on Wednesday, David remarked that he “just knew it would be my turn again some day....I just had a feeling it was going to be me.” Having seen an advert for the recent Mega Friday draw, which also offered the winner a luxury car, David decided to buy five lines with his regular numbers. Checking the results on Saturday, he noticed that he won £7.20 - and then checked the Millionaire Maker codes to discover that he had it indeed won it big once again.

In the time between winning their first seven-figure windfall and their second payday, the Longs have gotten married, bought a car and made sure to treat their families. They hope to take a cruise using some of their new winnings.

Camelot officials have referred to the couple’s incredible luck as an “extraordinary situation”, while David mentioned that “it’s definitely taking longer to sink in this time”.
