The largest EuroMillions jackpot so far this year was worth a huge £108 million (€130 million) and was shared between one ticket holder from France and another from Spain after they correctly matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars in the draw on 7th January. Following closely in second place was the £107 million (€129 million) jackpot won by UK ticket holder Neil Trotter on 14th March. Although Trotter, a car mechanic from South London, claimed his prize almost two months ago, he has recently hit the headlines again as his name is being exploited in a EuroMillions lottery scam.
The email scam, which was highlighted by police last week, informs the recipient that they have been selected by Trotter to receive a share of his win. The email claims to be from Trotter himself and say that, in an effort to alleviate poverty, he has chosen to award 15 people with a £1 million cash sum. Although the scam claims to be from the £107 million winner, police have said that the emails are in no way associated with Trotter. Further details on this latest EuroMillions scam can be found on the WorldLottery.net News page.
