  • Where does money raised by the Lottery go?

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

  • ‘Dying dad gave money for my winning ticket’

    A hospital visit to see her father, led lucky Libby Elliot, from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, to win £2,169,664 on the lottery.

    Shortly before leaving, he gave his grandchildren pocket money and “two pounds pocket money” to his daughter too.

    In 2013, Libby, then 57, told the Daily Record: “On a whim, I put it on the Lucky Dip on my way home.”

    The next day, her dad couldn’t believe the news and was amazed that Libby was in hospital with him rather than planning ways to spend her cash. 

    She recalled him saying: “Look at you, you’re a multi-millionaire and yet you’re sitting here beside me.”

  • 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.”

  • Copied customer

    Jamie Heavens, from Bournemouth, won £1million on a Millionaire Riches Scratch card in 2016.

    The roofer, then 26, was waiting to buy a drink at the petrol station when he realised he picked up the wrong flavour.

    He had to go to the back of the queue and noticed the “man in front of me bought a scratch card”.

    Jamie recalled: “So I picked the same card as him.

    “I drove to a layby to scratch it and realised I’d won but it was 7.30 in the morning and I still had a day’s shift ahead.

    “I couldn’t get signal so I climbed onto the roof we were working on and rang Camelot, I won a million pounds and earned another £100 for my shift.

    The big win allowed him and his partner to afford the wedding of their dreams but instead of getting carried away by his fortune, they live a modest life.

  • What is EuroMillions and how to play?

    EuroMillions was launched on February 7, 2004, by lotteries in France, Spain and the UK – with the first draw being held in Paris six days later.

    In October of that year, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland joined.

    Draws are held every Tuesday and Friday evening, with them all taking place in Paris at 8.45pm local time – 7.45pm in the UK.

    You will choose five main numbers and then two lucky stars (numbers), with prizes ranging from around £2.50 up to the jackpot.

    The prize values vary depending on ticket sales and the number of winners in each prize tier.

  • Lottery Adviser says some winners haven’t told ANYONE

    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 said.

  • 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.

  • Tale of $10million lotto winner fatally injected with painkillers by husband

    A LOTTERY winner was killed by her doctor husband who injected her with painkillers after he accused her of squandering the cash.

    Joseph Roncaioli, 72, was found guilty of the manslaughter of his wife Ibi who won $10 million she split with her friend.

    Prosecutors told his trial he may have been have been upset his wife squandered the couple’s fortune leaving them with little money for retirement, the Toronto Star reported.

    Passing sentence, the trial judge said his crime “more resembles a murder than an accidental killing”.

    “It was intentional, not spontaneous,” said Justice Jane Ferguson.

    Hungarian-born Ibi and her friend won $10 million on the lottery in Canada back in 1991 and the pair split the winnings.

    Her husband’s trial heard that she gave away $2 million on a son whose existence was a secret from her other two boys.

  • £2m grant to restore South Downs’ nature-rich chalk grassland

    Rare and nature-rich chalk grassland will be restored with a £2.23 million National Lottery grant for the South Downs, the National Trust has said.

    A partnership led by the charity to restore the ancient landscape and connect people to it will manage land for nature, offer outdoor therapeutic sessions for those with mental health needs and create jobs and volunteering opportunities.

    Some 18 schemes, including returning 60 hectares (150 acres) of golf course to downland and reintroducing grazing to help manage 40 sites, will go ahead over the next four years.

    In total, 815 hectares (2,000 acres) of land will be managed for nature, the National Trust said, while there will be community projects to access green space, and an archaeology project to get people digging for history in gardens and public spaces.

    The 10-organisation-strong partnership will work with communities, farmers, landowners and vineyards, and will provide jobs, apprenticeships and training in Brighton and Hove, Eastbourne and Lewes, as well as new skills for around 2,500 volunteers, the National Trust said.

  • 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.

  • 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.
