A young couple from Great Britain almost became a multimillionaire on February 26. Rachel Kennedy, 19, and her boyfriend Liam McCrohan, 21, had been playing the same numbers at EuroMillions for five weeks: 6, 12, 22, 29 and 33, with the two stars, 6 and 11.
It is this combination that allowed a Swiss to win the 210 million euros at stake that day. The two Britons have, in fact, not touched a penny. And for good reason, the young woman forgot to play that day, reports the media LADbible, relayed by Capital. Not very resentful, his companion posted this message on his Twitter account: “When your partner decides not to play Euromillions … and her usual 7 numbers come out”,
accompanied by a photo.
Forgetting due to stress
A post that quickly went viral and liked 35,000 times in two days. The young woman explained that she usually played this combination, but that she had lived a complicated week: “I was stressed by work at the university, so I completely forgot to buy a ticket”.
The newspaper Mirror indicates for her part that she did not have enough money in her online lottery account, which allowed her to automatically purchase a lottery ticket with the same combination. “Everything happens for a good reason, we are not richer or poorer than this morning. I hope it will be for someone who desperately needs it, ”said Rachel Kennedy philosophically.
