If you’re from the UK, you may have heard the name Jane Park, but who is she? Meet the youngest ever EuroMillions winner.
Imagine winning the lottery at just 17-years-old. Sounds great right? Well, for one girl that was a reality, but she actually wishes she never won it at all.
Jane Park won a pretty big sum of money back in 2013, and she recently jetted off to Dubai for lockdown. However, after returning to her home in Edinburgh, she’s now making Liverpool her full-time home.
Let’s explore exactly who she is…
Who is Jane Park?
Jane Park is a 24-year-old girl from Edinburgh, Scotland.
She was shot into the limelight when she became the youngest person to ever win the EuroMillions in 2013 at just 17-years-old.
Before she won the money, she had an £8-an-hour job as an office assistant and lived in a council flat with her mum.
Now, she’s a social media influencer with 212,000 followers on Instagram.
How much did Jane Park win?
Back in 2013, Jane won £1 million in the EuroMillions, and it was the first lottery ticket she’d ever bought.
Straight after her win she quit her job and booked a two-month holiday in Magaluf before buying a three bedroom house and a pet chihuahua.
She’s always been very public about her lottery win in the media, and she spoke about it on This Morning and Loose Women as well as appearing in a BBC documentary called Teenage Millionaire: The Year I Won The Lottery.
Over the past seven years, she’s splashed out on cars, holidays, plastic surgery and designer fashion items.
Jane says the lotto win ‘ruined her life’
Jane has often spoken about how lonely winning the lottery at such a young age made her feel.
According to The Sun, she has even considered suing Lotto, claiming that winning the jackpot ‘ruined her life’.
She told Sunday People: “I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life? I thought it would make [my life] ten times better but it’s made it ten times worse.”
Jane thinks that young people shouldn’t be allowed to win the lottery, believing that 18 should be the minimum age.
