    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.

    • £633.76 million (Powerball draw) from a winner from Wisconsin

    TOP TIPS FOR PLAYING THE LOTTERY

    High-low split

    It has been shown that winning tickets will usually have a spread of numbers across the Lottery’s number field.

    If the Lottery has a number field of 1-50, then 1-25 would be in the lower half while 26-50 would be in the higher half.

    It is unlikely that all numbers will be either from the lower or higher half, therefore your numbers should be a split of both.

    Don’t play popular numbers

    If you play number sequences that get played all the time like multiples of 5 (10, 15, 20, 25) or lucky number 7 (14, 21, 28, 35) then you are more likely to end up dividing the prize with other people.

    So for a chance to win big, avoid playing popular numbers.

    Mix odd with even numbers

    To give yourself a better chance of winning, mix odd and even numbers.

    Draws with just odd or even numbers are extremely rare.

    Check your numbers

    Check through your numbers thoroughly as you may have made a. mistake in writing down the winning numbers.

      WHICH STAR SIGN MOST LIKELY TO PICK THE RIGHT WINNING NUMBERS?

      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.

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

      ‘I’M GLAD I DIDN’T GET THE £3M’

      Martyn and Kay Tott got the shock of their lives when they realised they’d won £3million back in 2001 – six months after buying the ticket.

      By the time they saw an appeal for the winner to come forward, they couldn’t find the ticket.

      After 45 agonising days of deliberating, Camelot told the devastated couple that they weren’t going to receive the cash.

      “Having that money taken away was torture,” Martyn told the Mail on Sunday.

      “For a long time I lost sight of who I was and what I believed in. But I can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t get the £3million now.

      “There is no guarantee it would have brought me happiness.”

      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.

      LOTTO LIES

      A man who scooped £680,000 in an Australian lottery nearly missed out on the prize after thinking the win was a hoax.

      The lucky winner, from Darwin, almost didn’t collect the money after being left in total disbelief when he saw all six of his numbers on the lottery app.

      “Usually, I get an email straight after the draw that tells me how close I am to winning division one,” the winner told Daily Mail Australia.

      “But this time, I didn’t, so when I woke up on Sunday morning, I logged into The Lott app and I saw I had all six numbers.

      “I thought ‘well, that’s strange’ and then I saw the prize amount, and I thought it must be some kind of hoax.”

      He was one of five winning entries in the TattsLotto draw with each person taking home £680,000 ($1,304,946.92).

      EUROMILLIONS WINNER MARGARET LOUGHREY GAVE RELATIVES £1M EACH AND JUST FINISHED DREAM HOME WHEN SHE WAS FOUND DEAD AT 56

      The 56-year-old, who claimed a £27million win eight years ago, said the money had “destroyed her” before her sad death this week.

      Neighbours say Ms Loughrey – known as ‘Maggie Millions’ – had recently transformed a derelict property nicknamed ‘the barn’ into a stunning home for herself.

      Paul Gallagher told the Belfast Telegraph: “She had been living in a bungalow next to it and the barn was just finished, I believe.

      “It’s a pity she didn’t get to enjoy her new home.”

      And he said people were “shocked” by her death.

      “Margaret was well-known and did a lot of good, charitable work around the town,” he said.

      Ms Loughrey bought the winning ticket from shop SuperValu when she was walking back home from the Job Centre.

      Margaret Loughrey handed cash to friends and family after her Lottery win.

      HOW DOES THE NATIONAL LOTTERY WORK

      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.

      INSIDE MARGARET LOUGHREY’S VINTAGE CAR SHOWROOM AT NEW HOME SHE NEVER LIVED

      The 56-year-old, who scooped a £27million (€31million) fortune, built a six-bay showroom for the vehicles even though she did not drive.

      She was found dead at the £130,000 bungalow where she had been staying temporarily in Strabane, Co Tyrone, on Thursday.

      The little house is next door to the showroom and the barrel-roofed converted barn where she planned to live alone.

      Police said there were “no suspicious circumstances” after Ms Loughrey’s body was discovered.

      MUM WINS LOTTO JACKPOT JUST THREE WEEKS AFTER SHE STARTED BUYING TICKETS

      A young mother who only started playing lottery games three weeks ago has won $300,000 on the lottery.

      The mum from Sydney scooped the whopping cash prize after buying a ticket for the Lotto Strike draw.

      She had only played the lotto a few times before her $302,379 (£162,000) win and was stunned when an official confirmed the prize.

      She said: “I only started playing about three weeks ago. I’ve been playing a few games and thought I’d give Lotto Strike a go.

      “You think your chances of winning are small – you don’t expect to win!”

      The mother used a combination of birth dates and special numbers to pick her lucky numbers.

      'WE WON THE LOTTERY THEN GAVE WINNINGS AWAY BY MAKING PALS RICH & FLUSHING CASH DOWN THE LOO AFTER FIVE BOTTLES OF CHAMPAGNE’

      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.”

      CALLIE ROGERS CAMPAIGNING TO RAISE LEGAL AGE LIMIT TO PLAY THE LOTTERY

      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.”
