    Callie Rogers campaigns

    Callie is now campaigning for the government to raise the age limit for the National Lottery.

    Gambling is now more popular among children than skateboarding and campaigners believe an age limit of 16 entices young people into a habit of betting.

    Callie feels she was too young to cope with the pressure and wants to stop other kids going through the same problems she faced.

    She told the Mirror: “You are only a 16, with all that responsibility. At that age, you can get the best advice ever. But you are not in a position to listen. I was too young.

    “I suffer from such bad anxiety when I am going to meet new people. It preys on my mind, what a new partner’s family will think of me, or even new friends. I still get abuse just because of who I am.”

    First home

    Jane Park was Britain’s youngest EuroMillions winner when she scooped her £1million jackpot in 2013.

    The Edinburgh socialite moved out of the council house she shared with her mum after buying a three-bed home.

    Jane took pride in transforming it with dazzling décor, including flowers in many rooms, mirrored furniture, and coloured with cool greys and monochrome tones.

    With a fabulous, open plan kitchen complete with a lavish marble island, the cooking area lead to patio doors which opened into the garden.

    However she sold the house in 2016 to move back in with her mum after admitting she was lonely.

    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.

    What if…

    Euromillions winner Adrian Bayford is “consumed with guilt” as his son fights for life after a horror quad bike smash, friends say.

    The lad, 13, was hit by a car driven by his sister, 15, in the sprawling grounds of their Cambridgeshire mansion.

    The Sun exclusively revealed details of the horror smash as the boy is fighting for his life in intensive care with his family at his bedside.

    His sister raised the alarm after her brother was flung from his machine and through a fence.

    It is understood the car and quad bike were gifts bought for the kids by former postie Adrian, 49.

    Best numbers to pick for EuroMillions

    For the Euromillions, the most popular number is 50, followed by 44, 19, 4 and 30.

    The most common extra numbers have been 8 and 3. 

    Many players therefore use these same numbers, despite no set of number being mathematically more (or indeed less) likely than any other combination to come out of the machine.

    Big winner

    The biggest EuroMillions jackpot win so far this year in the UK was in April when nine rollovers took the jackpot from its starting value of £14m to over £122m before it was won by one anonymous ticket holder

    Camelot says

    No one won the mega-bucks EuroMillions jackpot on Friday night (8 September) – meaning the cash prize has now rolled over to a whopping £184 MILLION.

    The huge £184 million scoop will now roll over to Tuesday’s draw, meaning a new record of £184 million could be collected by a single UK ticketholder.

    Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “Tuesday’s massive EuroMillions jackpot is an estimated £184 million.

    “If one UK winner banks the lot, they would instantly become the UK’s biggest ever National Lottery winner. Players are urged to get their tickets early to be in with a chance of winning this fabulous prize.

    “National Lottery players make a huge difference to National Lottery Good Causes across the country generating more than £30 million every week.

    “Thanks to National Lottery players, over £1.2 billion has been distributed to date across the UK to help tackle the impact of coronavirus.”

    Tuesday’s jackpot could make one lucky Brit

    If someone scoops Tuesday’s jackpot, it would make them the largest lottery winner after beating the current record win of £170million.

    That was won by a player who wanted to remain anonymous on October 8, 2019. They walked off with a cool £170,221,000.

    Count your lucky stars

    Well according to the stars, it seems that some of us are much more likely to get it than others.

    Before we get to the big reveal of which sign is most likely to pick the right balls and become a millionaire, let’s take a look at some of the other lucky stars in the zodiac.

    • Leo
    • Virgo
    • Scorpio

    From mansion to homeless

    Ex-jailbird Lee Ryan scooped the £6.5million jackpot just 17 weeks after the lottery was launched on November 14 1994. He made headlines when it emerged he was accused of handling stolen cars and was imprisoned for 18 months after his huge payout.

    Lee then spent a decade living the high life and splashed his car on luxury cars, a helicopter and a £2million mansion.

    But Lee ended up penniless, spent two years living on the street and shacked up in a tiny flat in London he shared with homeless pals.

    “The money was cursed because I took the p**s out of God when I asked him to make me a multimillionaire. My cellmate warned me to be careful what I wished for,” he said.

    Lee ended up splitting with Karen Taylor, his girlfriend of eight years, and moved to London where he met a 25-year-old from Kyrgyzstan.

    They took an ill-fated trip to the Central Asian country where Lee attempted to invest the last of his winnings in property.

    But he returned empty-handed, claiming to have been stitched up by investors following the Kyrgyzstan revolution in 2010.

    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.”

    ‘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.

      Where does money raised by the Lottery go?

      In the year ending 31 March 2021, the funds were shared as follows:

      • Health, education, environment and charitable causes – 40%
      • Sport – 20%
      • Arts – 20%
      • Heritage – 20%

      ‘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.”

      Biggest jackpot in the history of EuroMillions

      The biggest ever jackpot to be won is €190million, which has been won by four different people – including two from Great Britain.

      Adrian and Gillian Bayford scooped the €190m (£148.7m) jackpot on August 10, 2012.

      Adrian, 41 and 40-year-old Gillian from Haverhill in Suffolk became instant multi-millionaires, but their winnings was only the second highest in Britain thanks to the conversion rate.

      What numbers do most people choose?

      A lot of people doing the EuroMillions pick a lucky dip to get their numbers.

      Lottoland advises that people should avoid popular numbers, like 1-31, as people tend to opt for their birth date.

      This means if these numbers come up more people will have them and the winning amount will be divided between more people.

      They also suggest avoidance of a sequence of numbers.

      Last night’s results

        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.

        The masters of manifestation, this sign is often found dream journaling and asking the universe for their heart’s desires.
