    From mansion to homeless

    Ex-jailbird Lee Ryan scooped the £6.5million jackpot just 17 weeks after the lottery was launched on November 14 1994. He made headlines when it emerged he was accused of handling stolen cars and was imprisoned for 18 months after his huge payout.

    Lee then spent a decade living the high life and splashed his car on luxury cars, a helicopter and a £2million mansion.

    But Lee ended up penniless, spent two years living on the street and shacked up in a tiny flat in London he shared with homeless pals.

    “The money was cursed because I took the p**s out of God when I asked him to make me a multimillionaire. My cellmate warned me to be careful what I wished for,” he said.

    Lee ended up splitting with Karen Taylor, his girlfriend of eight years, and moved to London where he met a 25-year-old from Kyrgyzstan.

    They took an ill-fated trip to the Central Asian country where Lee attempted to invest the last of his winnings in property.

    But he returned empty-handed, claiming to have been stitched up by investors following the Kyrgyzstan revolution in 2010.

    How does the National Lottery work?

    The National Lottery raises money to go to many ‘good causes’ and have helped give out numerous grants to those that need it most.

    On their website they state: “We retain around just 1% of revenue in profit, while around 95% of total revenue goes back to winners and society. More so, we run one of the most cost-efficient major lotteries in Europe, with around 4% of total revenue spent on operating costs.

    “To date, National Lottery players have helped to raise over £43 billion for Good Causes, with more than 635,000 individual awards made across the UK – the equivalent of more than 225 lottery grants in every UK postcode district.”

    ‘I sill shop in Primark despite winning £1.8m’

    A NATIONAL Lottery winning dinner lady still lives in her council house, shops in Primark and drives a Kia despite bagging £1.8million.

    Trish Emson, 51, explained money or her millionaire status did not change her or her partner Graham Norton, also 51, who still works as a decorator.

    The down-to-earth pair have even managed to keep their teenage son Benjamin, 17, in check – and don’t even give him pocket money.

    The modest mum, from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, said: “Being rich doesn’t make you posh or a better person.

    “I don’t like showing off and bragging about money and I can’t be posh anyway.

    “To look at me you wouldn’t think I was a millionaire, but if I have to dress up I feel fake, I prefer my jeans,” she told The Mirror.

    Where does money raised by the Lottery go?

    In the year ending 31 March 2021, the funds were shared as follows:

    • Health, education, environment and charitable causes – 40%
    • Sport – 20%
    • Arts – 20%
    • Heritage – 20%

    ‘We won, then gave our winnings away’

    A £115million jackpot is probably enough to not just change your life, but the lives of everyone you’ve ever cared about too.

    Which is probably why Frances and Patrick Connolly decided to give over half of their winnings to 175 people.

    “We won £114,969,775.70 and we have given away more than half,” Frances said last year.

    “That’s £60million-worth of love. And the thing that makes me even happier is that every single person we gave money to has passed some of it on to other people. I can’t think of a day since winning the Lottery that I haven’t smiled.”

    Biggest jackpot in the history of EuroMillions

    The biggest ever jackpot to be won is €190million, which has been won by four different people – including two from Great Britain.

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

    Adrian, 41 and 40-year-old Gillian from Haverhill in Suffolk became instant multi-millionaires, but their winnings was only the second highest in Britain thanks to the conversion rate.

    What numbers do most people choose?

    A lot of people doing the EuroMillions pick a lucky dip to get their numbers.

    Lottoland advises that people should avoid popular numbers, like 1-31, as people tend to opt for their birth date.

    This means if these numbers come up more people will have them and the winning amount will be divided between more people.

    They also suggest avoidance of a sequence of numbers.

      Unluckiest winner of all time

      That was the case for one young couple this week who missed out on the £182million Euromillions jackpot  when they realised their winning ticket payment hadn’t gone through.

      Rachel Kennedy, 19, and Liam McCrohan, 21, from Hertfordshire were “absolutely heartbroken” when they realised their usual numbers had come up, but they had won nothing.

      The couple, both students, had played the winning numbers of 6, 12, 22, 29, 33, 6 and 11 for five weeks in a row before all seven digits appeared in Friday’s draw.

      Rachel’s account was set up to automatically buy a Euromillions ticket with her usual numbers but because her account did not have the right funds, the ticket payment did not go through.

      “I called the number thinking that I had won £182million and they said ‘yeah you’ve got the right numbers but you didn’t have the funds in your account for the payment of the ticket so it didn’t actually go through’,” Rachel said.

      Camelot says

      No one won the mega-bucks EuroMillions jackpot on Friday night – meaning the cash prize has now rolled over to a whopping £184 MILLION.

      The huge £184 million scoop will now roll over to Tuesday’s draw, meaning a new record of £184 million could be collected by a single UK ticketholder.

      Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “Tuesday’s massive EuroMillions jackpot is an estimated £184 million.

      “If one UK winner banks the lot, they would instantly become the UK’s biggest ever National Lottery winner. Players are urged to get their tickets early to be in with a chance of winning this fabulous prize.

      “National Lottery players make a huge difference to National Lottery Good Causes across the country generating more than £30 million every week.

      “Thanks to National Lottery players, over £1.2 billion has been distributed to date across the UK to help tackle the impact of coronavirus.”

      Sign most likely to pick the right balls

      The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Which sign is most likely to win the lottery? Well, it’s good news if you’re born in February or March.

      According to research from Lott and MailOnline, dreamy Pisces is the luckiest sign of the zodiac when it comes to winning the lottery.

      The data, which was based on those winning the top lottery jackpot, found that 11.6% of the winners were Pisces – meaning, on average, they were more likely to pick the golden ticket.

      Go-with the-flow Pisces will stumble upon extraordinarily lucky breaks and often find themselves effortlessly attracting most things on their wish list.

      The masters of manifestation, this sign is often found dream journaling and asking the universe for their heart’s desires.

      So, Pisces, if you’re reading this maybe you should get down to the shops and buy a lottery ticket.

      Gran escapes jail

      A gran stole £33,000 worth of Lotto scratchcards from a corner shop while working behind the till, a court heard.

      Trusted shop assistant Sheila Hancock, 60, took thousands of cards from the display without paying for them.

      And if she saw it was a winning card after scratching off the silver foil she took the prize money out of the till, it was said.

      Puzzled owner Virajkumar Patel couldn’t understand why his busy store wasn’t making a profit despite staying open throughout the pandemic.

      So he checked CCTV and was horrified when he saw Hancock repeatedly helping herself to cards and winnings. York crown court heard she had become addicted to the “easy” gambling and got away with the deceit from January 2020 until April of this year.

      Some signs are luckier than others

      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
