  • Mum scooped £300,000 on Lottery scratch card

    A mum realised she had won £300,000 on a National Lottery scratch card after initially believing her winnings were just £1,000.

    Sandra Davine only discovered her huge winnings after a life-changing phone call to a lottery line operator in December last year.

    Sandra declared that she thought she had won £1,000 – enquiring as to how it could be claimed.

    But unbeknown to her, her day was about a get a lot better as the phone line operator confirmed that she had actually scooped a whopping £300,000.

    A stunned Sandra, of Renfrewshire, Scotland, can be heard saying: “You must be joking. There’s no way.”

  • The star signs that are luckier than others

    According to the stars, some signs are luckier than others…

    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 work!

    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.

  • Explained: How does the National Lottery work?

  • ‘Most boring’ winners

    Gareth and his wife Catherine joked they were the most “boring multimillionaires” when they won £40.6million the EuroMillions in 2012.

    She said she wanted a new carpet for the six-bedroom home he had just built and have her hair done twice a year.

    But he eventually splashed out on a huge hospitality box at Old Trafford and another at Wembley.

    They also bought a holiday villa in Tenerife. She gave up her job and he wound down his building company.

    While it seemed to be going well for the pair, they ended up splitting up and Gareth started dating a woman named Donna Desporte, who he seduced by telling her to “Google him” in a bar in Tenerife.

    They had a nine-month fling – which ended with him ignoring and avoiding her, according to Donna.

  • Bad luck lotto winners

    Dave and Angie Dawes couldn’t believe their luck when they won £101million in 2011.

    And the generous couple decided to share their wealth by giving their friends £1million each.

    “We’ve drawn up a list of 15 to 20 people that we’re going to make millionaires,” former Premier Foods supervisor Dave told The Guardian at the time.

    “Anyone who has helped us through our lives.”

    But despite their generosity, Lady Luck soon turned on the couple.

    In 2017, the couple’s son, Michael, sued them for more cash after he blew through gifts of £1.6million in two years.

    The Navy veteran tried to argue that he was led to believe that he would be given cash from the couple on an ongoing basis.

    But a judge ultimately dismissed the case after hearing of Michael’s “astonishing” level of expenditure, which included a £1,000 weekly grocery bill.

    After celebrating his 28th birthday on Monday, footage emerged of Kennedy anxiously clutching his lucky ticket and speaking to what appears to be a member of the lottery to confirm his winnings.

  • Explained: Odds of winning the EuroMillions

    The life-changing jackpot is hard to scoop. With between 80 to 100 million people purchasing a ticket for a EuroMillions draw each week, it proves stiff competition.

    In order to win the cash prize, players need to match all five main numbers and both lucky star numbers.

    But punters only have a 1 in 139,838, 160 chance of bagging the top prize.

    Matching five numbers and one star has odds of 1 in 6,991,908.

    There is a 1 in 22 chance of matching two numbers in the draw.

    The approximate overall odds of winning a prize in EuroMillions are 1 in 13.

    According to the EuroMillions website, the chances of winning the UK Millionaire Maker game can be estimated as 1 in 1,900,000.

    But winning in this game depends entirely on the number of the payslips sold, so the odds therefore fluctuate.

  • What are the most popular EuroMillions numbers?

    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.
