EuroMillions' youngest jackpot-winning player, Jane Park, is planning to sue the UK’s National Lottery because she believes that winning the jackpot at only 17 years of age has ruined her life.
At the time, Park managed to win $1.25 million, but she feels that a person of 17 years is too young to be able to handle it properly. She is now 21 years old.
Park said that while a lot of people wish to have that kind of money, they do not realize the extent of her stress. Among the grievances that she's experiencing, she listed not being able to find a romantic partner who isn't after her money, being sick of shopping for designer clothes, as well as the general stress of being a millionaire.
Among the luxuries that she decided to spend her money on was a new Rolex watch, quite a few extravagant nights out, a purple Range Rover, and some designer clothes. She also admitted to spending an enormous amount of money on traveling the world.
Soon after winning the jackpot, she decided to get in touch with British lottery firm Camelot. Camelot gave her some financial advice, and put her in touch with other jackpot-winning lottery players. Still, she believes that she was too young to be given such a large amount of money, saying that she is struggling to find a purpose in life as no one is in the same boat as her.
Park believes that the legal age of playing the lottery should be 18. Currently, the legal age of doing so is 16, which she believes is far too young.
She is currently in the process of seeking legal assistance. By suing the UK's National Lottery, she wishes to accomplish her goal of raising the legal lottery age.
