The lucky UK Lotto winner in this story is a postman from Barry in Wales. He was recently delivered the shock of his life after winning a mighty £2.6 million jackpot prize in the July 8th UK Lotto draw. The postman’s name is Matthew Evans, and he is 35-years-old.

UK Lotto Winner

Matthew bought his winning UK Lotto ticket from a convenience One Stop Shop. He kept the ticket in his trouser until checking the results on the Friday. Like many other unsuspecting lottery winners, Matthew initially thought he had won the sum of £20,000, but, upon checking his results online, he found out that he had actually won the sum of £2,604,015. 

Matthew’s life-changing winning UK Lotto numbers were as follows:


Matthew Evans is the latest postal worker to have become the newest millionaire after past winner Michael Stetar who won a $4 million lottery prize. Fred Morgan from Illinois also won $1 million with the Mega Millions lotto. It is quite astounding to think so many postal workers are so lucky!

Matthew Evans spent his night celebrating his blessed UK Lotto win with his family. The next day, he treated all his friends to breakfast before heading over to watch England beat Australia in a cricket match. Matthew has apparently already decided to buy some equipment for his sister and he also plans on replacing his 16-year-old Lexus he drives. 

Matthew joked: “Mind you I need a house first; I can't be parking a Ferrari on the pavement kerb in Barry.” He has been trying to save up for a deposit on a house, but now he has the means to buy his very own home. He also wants to live closer to the football grounds where he’s been a Cardiff City season-ticket holder for the past 17 years. Matthew is a true sports fanatic! 

This sports-crazy UK Lottery winner also has plans to travel around the world watching his favourite sporting events. These include the Euro 2016 finals (if Wales qualifies), and down under to Australia to watch an Ashes series. Who knows? He might even bump into Euro Millions winner John Taylor who also plans on watching that game. 

He has more on his sports events list, thought. He also wants to see the Lions play rugby in New Zealand, to take his father to the Monaco Grand Prix, and his mother to see the Wimbledon final. 

Matthew Evans is the latest big winner from Wales after Nigel Pickavance snagged £700,000 earlier this year. Matthew mentioned that his UK Lotto win is “for everyone” and will definitely help make a significant difference in the lives of his family and friends. Based on his story, you can tell that Matthew is most definitely a sensible man, and so too he plans to be sensible with his winnings. He plans to make a few investments, perhaps in the Royal Mail, or even his beloved Cardiff City.
