    Lottery fraud

    A RAPIST who scammed millions on the Lotto ten years ago still owns a posh four-bedroom house he allegedly bought with the tainted dosh.

    The home in commuter haven Kings Langley, Herts, just minutes from the M25 has fallen into serious disrepair.

    Docs show it is still owned by convicted rapist and fraudster Edward Putnam who is currently serving nine years for his despicable part in the biggest scam to ever hit the National Lottery.

    He was jailed for seven years in 1993 for raping a terrified pregnant 17-year-old girl.

    Putnam, now 56, “scooped” £2.5 million on the National Lottery in 2009 after conspiring with a Camelot employee to craft a fake ticket.

    What’s the scratchcard with the best odds?

    According to Oddschecker, the best scratchcard to snap up is £500 Loaded with odds of just 1 in 3.15.

    For just a fiver you could be in the running for £500.

    In second place, with the same odds, is Full of £500s which also has a top prize of £500.

    Cashword Multiplier follows close behind, which sees punters scratch off letters to reveal symbols to create full words.

    Into the golden pond

    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.

    'NO guarantee money will buy happiness'

    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.”

    ‘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.”

    Rolling in the pie

    They say money can’t buy you love – and it appears it can’t buy you a decent Cornish pasty in Scotland either.

    Lottery jackpot winner Adrian Bayford has quit his home in Scotland — because he missed the iconic pasties and the English pub.

    The ex-postie, 49, had relocated north of the border, having abandoned his £12million English country estate after a string of failed romances.

    But pals say the friendly millionaire — who scooped £148million in 2012 — got fed up with the fancy Scottish pies and neeps and tatties.

    The final straw came when lockdown ended and the dad-of-two realised how much he was missing English pubs — with Scottish drinking focused on bars and hotels.

    Friends said he was so bored without a decent village boozer he took up archery.

    Pals thought his country pile in Cambridgeshire had been sold, when in fact he had taken it off the market and moved back in.

    Top tips for playing the lottery

    Have you ever wondered the secrets to winning big in the lottery? Is it pure luck or is there a system to it…?

    1. Avoid computer picks. It lowers your odds of winning.
    2. On scratchcards, try buying 10 of one ticket instead of several different tickets.
    3. Mix up your numbers.
    4. Even it out – Don’t pick all odd or all even numbers.
    5. Split from the crowd, so don’t play patterns.
    6. Apparently, you should avoid anniversaries, birthday’s and dates.
    7. Avoid playing winning numbers that have been drawn before, because every combination has a chance of coming up once every half a million drawings.

    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.

    New rules on scratchcards

    A major rules shake-up to National Lottery tickets and scratch card will change who is able to buy tickets from October this year.

    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.

    The new rules come into effect from today after being announced as part of a major crackdown on gambling laws last year.

    Online sales of lottery tickets and scratch cards have already been banned – this came into force in April this year.

    It's for adults only

    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.

    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.

    ‘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.
