    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.

    How did John Roberts lose his money?

    John Roberts, from Edinburgh, won a massive £3.1million back in 1998.

    But just three years later the security guard was penniless after blowing his money on cars, houses and luxury holidays.

    One of his first big buys was a massive Tudor mansion in Blackpool, which he moved his wife, Linda, and five children into.

    The five-bedroom detached home was worth around £160,000 when he bought it – and was a far cry from their council flat in Pilton, Edinburgh.

    The seaside house was called Balmoral, after the couple’s favourite Scottish beauty spot.

    In 2001, John moved out of the home and moved in with his cousin. At that time, it was worth £250,000

    John is now rumoured to be living on handouts from friends and family after his marriage fell apart, and was said to be living in a caravan at one time.

    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.

    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.”

    Lucked out

    A WOMAN has divided opinion online after she bought her nephew a winning lottery ticket – then asked for some of the cash. 

    The aunt shared her situation on Reddit, explaining she’d fallen on hard times, and was living hand-to-mouth as she tried to pay her bills. 

    She said: “I have had a really rough year, laid off from my job and I’m out of unemployment options. 

    “I do own my house and managed to scrape by to pay my property taxes and insurance with odd jobs but I am eating ramen just about every meal.”

    But as it was her nephew’s birthday earlier this month, she “scraped together” some change to buy him a present, and got the only thing she could afford – lottery tickets. 

    To her shock, he won a substantial amount of money, saying: “The second one was actually into the middle 5 figures”

    She explained her sister and her husband were quite well off so she asked if she could have some financial help.

    £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.

    • Arts – 20%

    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.

    ‘We forgot our ticket – so we won twice’

    Derek and Dawn Ladner, from Redruth, Cornwall, were thrilled when the same six numbers they used every week finally came up in the midweek lottery draw.

    They initially claimed £479,142 from the £2,395,710 jackpot due to bagging the top prize with five other winners.

    However, a week later Derek, then 57, was in for quite the shock when he found a second lottery ticket in his pocket. 

    It was from that same winning draw and thanks to his forgetfulness – when he bet twice with the same lucky numbers – their winnings increased to £958,284.

    In 2007, lottery operator Camelot told the Daily Mail: “[Derek] bought one winning ticket but forgot about it, then he went off to buy another and ended up with two shares.”

      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.

      ‘I won £250,000 on a scratchcard – and celebrated win on first date’

      Luke Ashman, 22, from Dudley, West Midlands, bought the scratchcard before heading out for a drink with a woman that night after pubs reopened.

      The couple had been speaking and seeing each other for about a year but were yet to go on a proper date due to the Covid restrictions.

      They are still together after Luke’s big win.

      The young man said: “That night we went out for a meal, I ordered a bottle of Prosecco and we celebrated an amazing day of both a lottery win and a first date. You could say I’d won twice in one day.”

      Number 27 most likely to help punter scoop a jackpot

      National Lottery ball number 27 is the most likely to help punters win a jackpot, researchers say.

      It has made more appearances than any other in 3,071 draws in the past ten years.

      The number came up 399 times in the UK National Lottery, Thunderball, EuroMillions and Irish Lotto.

      That is 141 more times than number 57, the unluckiest number, which was drawn just 258 times.

      The second luckiest is 54, which appeared 387 times. It was followed by 29, 42, 52 and 58 in joint third on 381 times.

      The next luckiest was number 20 with 378. Then came 23, with 372.

        Michael Carroll who blew £9.7Million fortune remarries ex-wife who left him over orgies

        LOTTO Lout Michael Carroll remarried his ex-wife more than a decade after she left him for romping with prostitutes.

        The self-styled “King of the Chavs” was just 19 and working as a binman when he scooped £9.7million on the Lottery in 2002.

        But he blew his winnings on booze, drugs, sex and friends with ex-wife Sandra Aiken leaving the “big shot” for using prostitutes.

        She now appears to have forgiven Carroll, 38, and the pair have tied the knot for a second time, Daily Record reports.

        The couple wed in a small ceremony last Saturday and are now understood to be living a quiet life together.
