The first retailer to win £5,000 through EuroMillions HotPicks has been revealed as Tariq Perwez from Cardiff.

Tariq has worked in his shop, a family business originally owned by his father, in Cardiff for the last 38 years.

Saying he was over the moon with this win, Tariq commented: “It’s still not really sunk in, I didn’t believe it at first. I even tried to ring back to double-check!”

Retailers can still win £5,000 in the next draw that closes on Tuesday 19 December – five retailers will win £1,000 and one lucky retailer will walk away with £5,000.

January 2018 will see another ten £1,000 winners and a grand prize of £20,000.
