    ‘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.”

    ‘I was made an example of after winning the Lottery’

    Former chip shop worker Leah Sumray won £1million in 2007 — but ended up behind bars less than a year later for failing to testify at someone else’s trial.

    She ignored a witness summons to give evidence in an assault case, instead jetting off on a £2,000 luxury holiday to Fuerteventura.

    Sumray, who was 21 at the time of her win, was jailed for 14 days for contempt of court.

    “I know I did something wrong and I’m sorry,” she told The Mirror in 2008.

    “But I feel I was made an example of because I was a Lotto winner.”

    The couple who won lottery twice after losing their son to Covid

    A couple won two lottery prizes in two weeks, just months after tragically losing their son to Covid.

    Susan Slater and her husband won more than £30,000 on the People’s Postcode Lottery twice in July of this year.

    They now want to use the cash to remember their son Steve, who died with coronavirus.

    Susan, 74, said she couldn’t believe it when she found out that she had won again: “When I got the phone call for this, I’d told quite a few people that I’d won £1,000 and I thought ‘this is a wind-up, someone is winding me up!’

    “Nowhere in my imagination did I think I was going to be lucky enough to win £30,000.”

    Got to be in it to win it

    Euro-millions.com says the odds of picking five numbers and the two Lucky Stars is 1 in 139,838, 160.

    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.

    Crazy spending

    A LUXURY holiday, an expensive shopping spree, a flashy new motor – the possibilities are endless when you’re a new millionaire. 

    But such vast wealth is not something to be foolishly frittered away, as recently skint Michael ‘Lotto Lout’ Carroll will attest to after blowing £9.7m on drugs and sex parties.

    However, not everyone has such frivolous plans when it comes to spending their lottery money.

    Here we reveal some of the most unusual ways people have celebrated their newfound wealth.

    Money doesn’t buy happiness

    For many, winning the jackpot means mass celebrations and ultra-expensive cars – but not for Susan Hardman.

    When the mum-of-one’s numbers came up in January 2010 she worked as a hairdresser in Eardisley, Hereford, and was “struggling financially”.

    Instead of splashing out when the £1.2million win landed in her bank account, she traded in her scissors for overalls and became a pig farmer.

    Susan claimed to be happier than ever knee-deep in mud and said bringing a piglet into the world brought her “more satisfaction” than winning the lottery.

    Can lottery winners remain anonymous in the UK?

    Absolutely! Lottery winners can keep their anonymity in the UK.

    There is also a common myth or misconception that remaining anonymous affects the amount of money you win.

    However, this is absolutely false and your decision about whether or not to go public has no bearing on your jackpot.

    What prizes can be claimed at the Post Office?

    Prizes up to £500 can be claimed at the Lottery terminal in store.

    For prizes over £500 and up to £50,000, you must take your winning ticket to the Lottery terminal for scanning and then go to the PO counter.

    AND, if you’ve been really, really lucky and won over £50,000, you will need to claim your prize in person.

    The UK’s biggest unclaimed lottery win

    The UK’s biggest unclaimed win was from June 2012, when a Euromillions prize worth £63.8 million.

    The prize money was never picked up by its unfortunate owner.

    The ticket was bought in the Stevenage or Hitchin areas of Hertfordshire but, after the allowed time period to claim expired, the money was instead distributed among charitable causes.

    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.”

    NHS worker syndicate bagged £118,044 on EuroMillions

    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.

    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.

    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.

      Too much too young

      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.

      Winner, winner (continued)

      Speaking at the time, syndicate leader Julie Saunders, 56, said she found out they had won the jackpot while visiting her father in a care home the day after the EuroMillions draw.

      Julie, who worked at the hospital for 12 years, said: “Dreams really do come true.

      “This win is life-changing for us all and the win is still sinking in.

      “We are all so emotional but very, very happy.

      “We will celebrate properly together after the excitement has died down.

      “I’m not sure we will carry on playing as a syndicate – it is time to give someone else a chance of winning.

      “We used to be dinner ladies — now we’re winner ladies.”

      Winner, winner, chicken dinner

      A group of NHS dinner ladies who call themselves the “Catering Girls” ditched their jobs after scooping a £25m lottery jackpot in November 2017.

      The lucky six all quit the health service after scooping the EuroMillions prize of £25,476,778.30.

      The “Catering Girls” have been playing together for six years at their hospital in Port Talbot, South Wales.

      They promised to have “one hell of a Christmas”.

      In November 2018 they revealed that despite quitting their jobs, their lives are very much the same despite being millionaires.
