    Explained: How does the National Lottery work?

    The National Lottery raises money to go to many ‘good causes’ and have helped give out numerous grants to those that need it most.

    On their website they state: “We retain around just 1% of revenue in profit, while around 95% of total revenue goes back to winners and society. More so, we run one of the most cost-efficient major lotteries in Europe, with around 4% of total revenue spent on operating costs.

    “To date, National Lottery players have helped to raise over £43 billion for Good Causes, with more than 635,000 individual awards made across the UK – the equivalent of more than 225 lottery grants in every UK postcode district.”

      ‘Most boring’ winners

      Gareth and his wife Catherine joked they were the most “boring multimillionaires” when they won £40.6million the EuroMillions in 2012.

      She said she wanted a new carpet for the six-bedroom home he had just built and have her hair done twice a year.

      But he eventually splashed out on a huge hospitality box at Old Trafford and another at Wembley.

      They also bought a holiday villa in Tenerife. She gave up her job and he wound down his building company.

      While it seemed to be going well for the pair, they ended up splitting up and Gareth started dating a woman named Donna Desporte, who he seduced by telling her to “Google him” in a bar in Tenerife.

      They had a nine-month fling – which ended with him ignoring and avoiding her, according to Donna.

      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.

      Life-changing Lotto win

      An ex- Championship footballer who was forced to retire due to injury has bagged himself a life-changing £1million on the National Lottery.

      Terry Kennedy, who played for Sheffield United and Harrogate Town, has gone viral on social media after a video was posted of him being informed of his sensational win.

      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.

      The magic winning formula

      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.
