So what will they spend their latest jackpot on? Along with a big celebration with close friends, David Long said that while not being "a huge fan of travelling," he hopes to take Kathleen on a lavish honeymoon.

The U.K. national lottery has a number of jackpot games, including the national Lotto jackpot and EuroMillions, which takes place twice a week across a number of European countries.
The National Lottery creates more than six million UK winners each week, and 3,700 individuals have been made millionaires or - even better – multimillionaires, since its founding in 1994, according to its official site.
On top of that, the state-franchised lottery generates £33 million weekly towards National Lottery-funded Projects, which help fund UK community projects.
