But the winner decided to stay anonymous on their historical win.
In 2011, Colin and Chris Weir won £161million on the EuroMillions.
They splashed out on a stunning mansion and their humble first buys included a checked sports jacket, a computer and a tractor.
The Scottish couple initially bought Knock House near Largs, but they sold their mansion in favour of an even bigger pad in Troon.
They donated much of their money and set up The Weir Charitable Trust in 2013.
In April, the pair announced they were filing for divorce and released a statement.
In December 2019, Colin died after succumbing to a “short illness”.
He saved money away to throw his friends a lobster feast at the funeral.
Adrian and Gillian Bayford from Suffolk won £148.6 million, after exchange rates, on 10th August 2012 after buying a Lucky Dip from a convenience store.
