A couple have beaten odds of 283 billion to one to win £1 million twice through the lottery's EuroMillions.
David and Kathleen Long spoke to ITV News Correspondent Rupert Evelyn about their Midas touch.
A UK couple who have won £1 million in the EuroMillions for the second time "just can't believe it".
David and Kathleen Long from Scunthorpe, who won their first £1 million in 2013, scooped the big money prize again on Friday night, beating odds of more than 283 billion to one.
But Mr Long said he "just knew it would be my turn again some day" as the couple become the first people to win £1 million twice who have gone public.
The pair, then known as David Long and Kathleen MacKenzie, previously banked £1,000,000 in the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle draw on Friday July 26 2013.
Mr Long said: "I always knew I'd win, even the first time. I just had a feeling it was going to be me. I tend to play when I know there are lots of prizes on the go.
"Last time I knew I had a good chance because there were 100 prizes of £1 million. Last Friday night I was passing the local shop and saw there were 10 £1 million prizes on EuroMillions and a nice car and thought yeah I'll give that a go.
"Got to be worth a few lines and I got five using my usual numbers.
"On Saturday morning I sat down in front of our telly and started checking the numbers. On one line I'd matched two numbers and one star to get £7.20 and thought that's all right.
"Then I checked the raffle codes - something I've learnt to do automatically since winning last time. After a few moments I very calmly called Kath in and said 'Have a look at this. It's there. Look. Read that line'."
Mr Long said his wife checked the television and went online, adding: "Then she went up right close to our television on the wall, put on her glasses and stared really hard at the raffle numbers. It seemed ages and then she finally said: 'You said you'd do it again and you have!' Everything has been a blur ever since.
"It's definitely taking longer to sink in this time!"
