    ‘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.

    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.”

    Camelot on the age change (continued)

    A Camelot spokesperson said: “Following the government’s decision to raise the age to play The National Lottery from 16 to 18 on October 1, 2021, we carried out a major programme of work to implement all of the changes that were necessary as quickly as possible, while ensuring that we maintained the very high standards demanded of The National Lottery. 

    “As a result of the excellent progress we made, we can confirm that the age to play all National Lottery games changed to 18 years or over on 22 April 2021 – well in advance of the change in legislation, which comes into force today.

    “Since April, those under the age of 18 have been unable to play National Lottery games in a retail store, online or on the National Lottery apps.”

    How old do I need to be to play?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Michael Carroll who blew £9.7Million fortune remarries ex-wife who left him over orgies

    LOTTO Lout Michael Carroll has remarried his ex-wife more than a decade after she left him for romping with prostitutes.

    The self-styled “King of the Chavs” was just 19 and working as a binman when he scooped £9.7million on the Lottery in 2002.

    But he blew his winnings on booze, drugs, sex and friends with ex-wife Sandra Aiken leaving the “big shot” for using prostitutes.

    She now appears to have forgiven Carroll, 38, and the pair have tied the knot for a second time, Daily Record reports.

    The couple wed in a small ceremony last Saturday and are now understood to be living a quiet life together.

    Explained: How long do winners have to claim their money?

    Winners from different countries have different deadlines to claim their prize.

    In Austria, winners have a whole three years to claim the prize before it is returned to the lottery and used to fund boosted prizes.

    Belgian winners, on the other hand, only have around 140 days before the money is returned to the Belgian National Lottery.

    The least amount of time to snap up the jackpot goes to France and Luxembourg.

    Winners from Ireland, Portugal and Spain all have around 90 days to tell the world they’ve won.

      Gran escapes jail after stealing £33k worth of scratch cards

      A gran stole £33,000 worth of Lotto scratchcards from a corner shop while working behind the till, a court heard.

      Trusted shop assistant Sheila Hancock, 60, took thousands of cards from the display without paying for them.

      And if she saw it was a winning card after scratching off the silver foil she took the prize money out of the till, it was said.

      Puzzled owner Virajkumar Patel couldn’t understand why his busy store wasn’t making a profit despite staying open throughout the pandemic.

      So he checked CCTV and was horrified when he saw Hancock repeatedly helping herself to cards and winnings. York crown court heard she had become addicted to the “easy” gambling and got away with the deceit from January 2020 until April of this year.

      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.

      ‘Too much too young’

      Callie Rogers became Britain’s youngest lottery winner when she won £1.9million in 2003. The 16-year-old from Cumbria gave up her £3.60-an-hour checkout job and set about spending her money.

      Within a month Callie, who was in foster care after leaving home when her biological parents split up, had also bought a £180,000 bungalow and a £76,000 home for her mum.

      She ultimately blew thousands on wild parties, three boob jobs and drugs, plus around £300,000 on designer clothes.

      “It was too much money for someone so young,” she told Closer Magazine.

      “Even if you say your life won’t change, it does and often not for the better.”

      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.

      ‘We forgot our ticket – so we won twice’

      Derek and Dawn Ladner, from Redruth, Cornwall, were thrilled when the same six numbers they used every week finally came up in the midweek lottery draw.

      They initially claimed £479,142 from the £2,395,710 jackpot due to bagging the top prize with five other winners.

      However, a week later Derek, then 57, was in for quite the shock when he found a second lottery ticket in his pocket. 

      It was from that same winning draw and thanks to his forgetfulness – when he bet twice with the same lucky numbers – their winnings increased to £958,284.

      In 2007, lottery operator Camelot told the Daily Mail: “[Derek] bought one winning ticket but forgot about it, then he went off to buy another and ended up with two shares.”

      Some star signs are luckier than others

      Well, according to the stars some signs are luckier than others, so read on and see if you should pop out and buy that winning lotto ticket. It could be you!

      Leo – Oh, Leo we knew you’d be one of the lucky ones. You always look good, have a string of admirers and just tend to always be prowling on the bright side of the street.

      Virgo – It’s no coincidence that planner extraordinaire is one of the luckiest signs of the zodiac. Virgos only become successful because they put in the hours and werk, girl.

      Scorpio – Magnanimous Scorpio has definitely got it going on when it comes to luck. They’ll often find themselves in the right place at the right time as if by magic, much to the annoyance of some less fortunate souls.

      ‘Begging for blackcurrant juice’

      Kerri-Ann Robinson, from Stevenage, Hertfordshire, was studying for her college diploma in business when she won the jackpot. 

      The mature student, then 41, was taking care of her three-year-old daughter when she “begged me for a blackcurrant juice” in 2007.

      Kerri-Ann raced out to the shops at lunchtime and “as an afterthought, chose a Lucky Dip for the Lotto draw that night”.

      The next day during a break between classes, she checked the numbers and discovered she had won £2,543,691.

      Why did the ‘King of Chavs’ wife leave him?

      Michael Carroll has reportedly remarried his estranged wife Sandra.

      The self-styled ‘King of Chavs’ was 19 when he scooped £9,736,131 on the National Lottery in November 2002.

      Part-time binman Michael Carroll, who was wearing an electronic tag when he bought his winning ticket, splashed out on a £340,000 on a six-bedroom home in Norfolk. Not content with the swish property, he lavished £400,000 on a series of upgrades including a swimming pool and a car track in the garden.

      Michael also spent around £1million on shares in his beloved Rangers FC and £49,000 on a BMW. Carroll’s wife, Sandra, left him just a month after their wedding in 2003 after being appalled by his incessant partying, accusing him of cheating on her with sex workers.

      She took £1.4million in a settlement – but once she was gone, Michael really dialled up the hedonism with what he called “Roman-style orgies” at his mansion while spending £2,000 on cocaine in a single day.

      “I only started to think about three things – drugs, sex and gold,” he said. “The dealer who introduced me to crack has more of my lotto money than I do.”

      ‘Dying dad gave money for my winning ticket’

      A hospital visit to see her father, led lucky Libby Elliot, from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, to win £2,169,664 on the lottery.

      Shortly before leaving, he gave his grandchildren pocket money and “two pounds pocket money” to his daughter too.

      In 2013, Libby, then 57, told the Daily Record: “On a whim, I put it on the Lucky Dip on my way home.”

      The next day, her dad couldn’t believe the news and was amazed that Libby was in hospital with him rather than planning ways to spend her cash. 

      She recalled him saying: “Look at you, you’re a multi-millionaire and yet you’re sitting here beside me.”
