Now that the dust has settled following Friday’s £52.2 million EuroMillions draw it has been revealed that a mystery French ticket holder and a cab driver from the UK shared the EuroMillions jackpot. The lucky cabbie has won the fourth largest single win in UK lottery history after matching the five main lottery numbers and the two lucky stars during last Friday night’s EuroMillions draw.

George Sturt, a 76-year-old cab firm owner and grandad from Dorking in Surrey was one of two lucky EuroMillions ticket holders to share the massive £52.2 million three-time roller jackpot on Friday night. Even though George is now the fourth biggest single winner of any lottery in the UK he says he will continue to work as he meets “too many nice people through it to give it up but he does intend on sharing his new found lottery fortune.

Already, within a few days of realising that he is a multi-millionaire, this kind hearted lottery winner has pledged to help those less fortunate than himself. George said “I don’t care about having a lot of money. I’m just glad my children will be looked after. I really want other people to benefit from this money. George has said that he will make sure that his family are all taken care of for the rest of their days but he also said that he will get great pleasure from assisting those less fortunate than himself by offering charitable gestures to various local and national needy causes.
