Belfast couple win £12.9m Euromillions jackpot

A couple from Belfast have won a massive £12.9m Euromillions jackpot.

The lucky lottery winners have become multi-millionaires after last Friday's draw - scooping a whopping £12,935,936.30.

The Northern Irish pair are set to go public on Tuesday.

The National Lottery is this week celebrating 20 years - and there have been 81 millionaires created in the province since the first draw on November 19, 1994.

The most recent big Lottery winner to go public was Margaret Loughrey.

Last December the Strabane woman's spur of the moment decision to do a Lucky Dip on her way home meant she became Northern Ireland's biggest-ever Lotto winner.

The 48-year-old from Carlton Drive struck gold when she triumphed in the £27m EuroMillions draw.
