    Special win after ‘scary’ pandemic

    A syndicate of 53 NHS workers won £118,044 on EuroMillions earlier this month.

    They matched five numbers and one lucky star in the October 8 draw.

    The syndicate members are mostly pharmacy staff at Morriston Hospital in Swansea and aged between 20 and 63.

    They have been working flat out during the pandemic.

    Pharmacy technician Kim Owen, 61, said: “It’s been a scary time for all of us so the win is extra special.”

    Members of the syndicate, which is called the Pharmily Crew, will each receive £2,227. Most say they will spend their share on sunshine holidays.

    What charities benefit from the money?

    Around £30 million is raised every week by National Lottery players for good causes – so even if you don’t win some of the country’s most vulnerable do.

    Here are some of the organisations they work with:

    • Arts Council England
    • Sport England
    • BFI
    • UK Sport
    • Arts Council Of Wales
    • Sport Wales
    • Arts Council Of Northern Ireland

    Tips to get lucky numbers

    Avoid repeats

    Another top tip is to ensure you are always choosing numbers that weren’t drawn last week.

    While it might seem 3 is a lucky number, just because it appeared in the previous draw, it doesn’t mean it will again next time.

    Odds and evens

    According to expert analysis, all-odd and all-even line-ups are drawn less than three per cent of the time.

    As there are seven gaps to fill, this means it is best to pick three odd and two even, or two odd and three even.

    One of these patterns will occur in 68 per cent of EuroMillions draws.

    Shun same last digits

    Similarly to odds and evens, it’s good to mix things up when it comes to the second digit of your numbers.

    Even if seven might be your lucky number, think twice about choosing 7, 17, 27, 37 and 47.

    Almost 90 per cent of draws have no more than one repeated last digit.

    And your chances of winning with four same final digits drop to less than two tenths of one per cent.

    Woman wins on first time ‘hunch’

    A woman won £184million on her first ever EuroMillion lottery ticket after buying it “on a hunch”.

    The young woman – who wanted to remain anonymous – was presented with the prize at her home in Tahiti after it went unclaimed since October 15.

    According to the EuroMillions website, her ticket was the only entry that matched all seven numbers after the jackpot had hit its cap of €220m (£184m).

    The mystery woman said she had never entered the EuroMillions draw in her life but had grown up watching her grandfather play.

    “I was waiting for the right moment to play, and that day I had a hunch,” she said.

    “Everything is possible, you just have to believe in it. Before checking my ticket, I felt a shiver in my back.

    Boyfriend who stabbed £5.5m Lotto winner had previously knifed boy

    A CONTROL freak who stabbed his £5.5million Lotto winner girlfriend in the face before leaving her to die had previously knifed a child.

    Violent Stephen Gibbs, 45, has been jailed for viciously attacking ex Emma Brown – but it's now been revealed the brute stabbed an 11-year-old boy 16 years ago.

    Gibbs stabbed Luke Hilberg, then 11, five times after his mum Nicola ended their nine-year relationship.

    The court heard how Nicola was the intended victim, but fuming Gibbs instead plunged a kitchen knife into Luke's back before stabbing himself and jumping off a multi-storey car park.

    Luke, now 28, told the Mirror: "I knew he'd attack again. A leopard never changes its spots.

    "When he doesn’t get his own way he’s not happy. He would start smashing things up."

    Lottery with the best odds UK

    The game with the best odds, in terms of winning the top prize, is the Thunderball.

    According to the National Lottery website, the odds of winning the jackpots are:

    • Lotto jackpot: 1 in 45,057,474.
    • EuroMillions jackpot: 1 in 139,838,160.
    • Set For Life top prize: 1 in 15,339,390.
    • Thunderball top prize: 1 in 8,060,598.

      ‘Money made my close relatives demanding and greedy’

      Euromillions mum Gillian Bayford is locked in a family feud over her share of a £148million jackpot.

      Gillian, 44, accused her dad Ian McCulloch, 72, of trying to seize control of the fortune she won with her ex Adrian Bayford, 46.

      The Dundee mum of two blasted Ian, mum Brenda and brother Colin, 42, saying: “It made them bitter and greedy.”

      And she told how she gave them a £20million slice of her fortune — only for them to come back for more.

      Gillian, who runs a property firm in Dundee, said: “It’s upsetting and it’s raw. The money was supposed to make everybody happy.

      “But it’s made my close relatives demanding and greedy.”

      Your guide to playing the odds

      Firstly, select the right game. The lottery could mean one of several games – each with different odds and jackpots.

      Playing a game with smaller odds gives you a better chance of winning.

      Secondly, buy more tickets. This sounds obvious, but there are several ways to do this.

      Aside from simply splashing out more yourself, one way of increasing your odds of winning is to join a syndicate or pool.

      This could be made up of friends, family, colleagues or even strangers – it doesn’t matter.

      A syndicate or pool is a group of people who purchase a set number of tickets and agree to share any prizes out equally, whoever wins.

      ‘Being rich doesn’t make you a better person’

      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.

      Explained: What happens to unclaimed prizes?

      Any cash that isn’t claimed after a total of 180 days from a game played in the UK goes to National Lottery projects across the country.

      Folks in Ireland have just half that time to claim too, with only 90 days before the prize money is off the table.

      Once the claim period is over, the ticket officially expires and the owner of the lottery ticket will no longer be able to claim any of their winnings.

      But after that time has expired, any unclaimed prizes, plus any interest they might have accumulated in that time, are allocated to the National Lottery’s Good Causes fund instead.

      This will usually then go on to help fund things like sport programmes or local community buildings or other projects.

      Lotto millionaire dubbed Mr Sensible for investing with Queen’s bank

      LOTTO millionaire Steve Thomson has been dubbed “Mr Sensible” after investing a chunk of his £105million win with the Queen’s bank.

      Steve, 43, and wife Lenka, 42, put “tens of millions” into two trusts with Coutts & Co.

      A £30million stocks and shares investment could earn the builder £90million in 20 years.

      A pal said Steve, originally from Selsey, West Sussex, “doesn’t want to end up skint”.

      Careful Steve, who won EuroMillions in 2019, took more than a year to leave his council house for a £4.5million pad.

      Rule shake up means have to be 18 for scratch cards

      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.
