    Some Lottery winners haven’t told ANYONE about their money

    The man who looks after lottery winners says he has advised some people who have never told a single soul, and that he will “never know” himself how it feels to win big.

    Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, has seen “all sorts” of reactions in his 15 years dealing with lucky ticketholders.

    “I’ve seen people be sick with excitement, I’ve seen people resign their job on the spot, I’ve seen people jumping up and down, I’ve known husbands who haven’t told wives and wives who haven’t told husbands, I’ve been to homes where there’s literally a party going on already,” he told the PA news agency.

    Lotto curse

    A LOTTO winner blew his £6.5million fortune on cars, homes and dodgy business ventures before eventually being made homeless.

    Lee Ryan, who hit the jackpot in 1995, said his win was nothing but a “curse”.

    He scooped the whopping cash prize just weeks before going to jail for handling stolen cars.

    But after years of high living and bad investments, the former millionaire was last known to be renting a two-room flat in south London and earning less than £10,000.

    Ryan insisted in 2014 that he was happier being broke than he had ever been as a millionaire.

    The ex-lotto winner, now in his 60s, scooped the stellar jackpot in March 1995 at the same time he was awaiting trial.

      Is there a lottery draw tonight?

      No, there is no Lottery draw on tonight, or on Sundays every week.

      There are six draws a week on though, Monday – Saturday, so plenty of chances to have a crack at the jackpot.

      How old do I need to be to play?

      Those feeling lucky now have to be over 18 to play, as the minimum age goes up from 16 to 18.

      That means it is illegal for any retailer to sell these goods to anyone under the age of 18 – and will apply to favourite games like Lotto and the EuroMillions.

      Online sales of lottery tickets and scratchcards have already been banned – this came into force in April this year.

      The new age restriction, which was exclusively revealed by The Sun, aims to make sure the lottery is not a “gateway to problem gambling”, minister for sport, tourism and heritage Nigel Huddleston previously said.

      Gambling is illegal for under-18s, but until now anyone 16 or over has been able to play National Lottery games.

      How does Thunderball work?

      Players must pick five main numbers from 1 to 39 and on Thunderball number which ranges from 1 to 14.

      Prizes may be won by matching the main numbers, but those who also match with the Thunderball will win a larger prize.

      If a player matches with the Thunderball only, they could win £3, but if they have match all five numbers and the Thunderball, they could scoop £500,000.

      Draws take place at 8.15pm four times a week – on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays – and are shown on the National Lottery website and YouTube.

      The unexpected win

      Like many people who play the lottery, Patrick and Frances Connolly “always hoped” they would win but didn’t have high hopes.

      But two years ago, on New Year’s Day, they scooped £114,969,775 on the EuroMillions after playing every week for years. 

      When the couple, from County Armagh, Northern Ireland, found out about the “life-changing” sum, they modestly celebrated with “a cup of tea and a hug”.

      They told ITV: “I always hoped we would win the lottery one day, but when we did, it would be just our luck that lots of others would win on the same day with the same numbers too.

      “Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would ever win almost £115 million.”

      Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot now an estimated £8.7m

      The jackpot for Wednesday’s National Lottery draw will be an estimated £8.7 million after no-one bagged the top prize on Saturday evening.

      Some 141 ticketholders matched five numbers to win £1,750, while 8,093 matched four numbers to claim £140.

      Lottery winners biggest prizes

      The first National Lottery draw was held on November 19 1994 when seven winners shared a jackpot of £5,874,778.

      Gareth Bull, a 49-year-old builder, won £41million in November, 2020 and ended up knocking down his bungalow to make way for a luxury manor house with a pool.

      Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Haverhill, Suffolk, picked up £148,656,000 after they played the draw on August, 10, 2012, while Jane Park became Britain’s youngest lottery winner when she scooped up £1 million in 2013.

      The late-Colin Weir and his wife Christine scooped £161million in 2011, making them richer than the Beckhams.

      While Adrian and Gillian Bayford scooped a €190m (£148.7m) Euromillions jackpot on August 10, 2012.

      Odds of winning the Millionaire Maker?

      According to the EuroMillions website, there is a 1 in 1,900,000 chance that a player could win the Millionaire Maker game on a Tuesday.

      This shrinks to 1 in approximately 2,250,000 if there is a rollover – meaning no one has won the previous draw’s jackpot.

      On a Friday, it’s estimated that there is a 1 in 2,950,000 chance of winning a guaranteed £1million.

      If there is a quadruple rollover, the odds could fall to 1 in 3,400,000.

      Winning the game depends on the number of payslips sold so the odds fluctuate from game-to-game.

      The odds can also change if there is a special event.

      In March 2019, EuroMillions created 40 UK millionaires in a one-off special draw.

        Some star signs are luckier than others

        Well, according to the stars some signs are luckier than others, so read on and see if you should pop out and buy that winning lotto ticket. It could be you!

        Leo – Oh, Leo we knew you’d be one of the lucky ones. You always look good, have a string of admirers and just tend to always be prowling on the bright side of the street.

        Virgo – It’s no coincidence that planner extraordinaire is one of the luckiest signs of the zodiac. Virgos only become successful because they put in the hours and werk, girl.

        Scorpio – Magnanimous Scorpio has definitely got it going on when it comes to luck. They’ll often find themselves in the right place at the right time as if by magic, much to the annoyance of some less fortunate souls.

        Team GB star CJ Ujah stripped of National Lottery funding over failed drug test

        CJ UJAH has been stripped of domestic athletics funding following his Olympics drugs violation.

        The sprinter is suspended from the sport after testing positive for banned substances at the Tokyo Games in August.

        The case has gone to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and the GB team that won 4x100m relay silver behind Italy could be stripped of their medals.

        That would mean heartache for Ujah’s Tokyo team-mates Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake.

        Londoner Ujah, 27, was on Olympic Relays funding – between £21,000 and £28,000 – over the past 12 months.

        He insists he is not a cheat and denies any wrongdoing.

        Callie rogers campaigning to raise legal age limit

        Callie is now campaigning for the government to raise the age limit for the National Lottery.

        Gambling is now more popular among children than skateboarding and campaigners believe an age limit of 16 entices young people into a habit of betting.

        Callie feels she was too young to cope with the pressure and wants to stop other kids going through the same problems she faced.

        She told the Mirror: “You are only a 16, with all that responsibility. At that age, you can get the best advice ever. But you are not in a position to listen. I was too young.

        “I suffer from such bad anxiety when I am going to meet new people. It preys on my mind, what a new partner’s family will think of me, or even new friends.

        “I still get abuse just because of who I am.”

        When did Callie Rogers win the Lottery and how much did she win?

        Callie won just under £1.9million in 2003.

        Callie forked out £11,500 on two boob jobs, £300,000 on clothes, make-up and tattoos, £85,000 on top-of-the-range sports cars, and a quarter of a million pounds on cocaine.

        Callie spent a further £250,000 on holidays to locations including Mexico and EuroDisney, £118,000 on gifts to former boyfriends, £190,000 in un-returned loans to friends and family members, and £50,500 on solicitors’ fees.

        Callie says she believes she was too young to bag such a huge sum – leaving her with nothing but trouble.

        She added: “It was too much money for someone so young. Even if you say your life won’t change, it does and often not for the better.”

        Callie insists she is much happier now she lives a “normal” life.

        She said: “The pressure to splash out and live a glam party life has gone – and I prefer it.”
