National Lottery results LATEST: Winning EuroMillions numbers for £14.1m jackpot revealed ahead of Lotto draw tonight

TONIGHT'S National Lottery jackpot has rolled over to an estimated £20million after no-one claimed the top prize on Wednesday.

Last night's EuroMillions draw saw a eye-watering jackpot of £14.1million and one lucky Brit is yet to claim it.

The EuroMillions numbers last night were 5, 7, 13, 29 and 25; with the lucky stars being 3 and 7.

A National Lottery winner is yet to claim a potentially life-changing £120,000 prize from the Set for Life draw in August.

A lucky ticket holder is missing out on £10,000-a-month for a whole year after their five main numbers were drawn on August 19.

National Lottery winners’ adviser Andy Carter said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings. This amazing prize could really make a massive difference to somebody’s life.

"We’re urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding."

    THE MOST COMMON EUROMILLIONS WINNING NUMBERS REVEALED

    For EuroMillions, you pick five main numbers and two Lucky Stars, with draws taking place every Tuesdays and Fridays.

    The five most drawn main numbers since EuroMillions launched in February 2004 are 23, 44, 50, 19 and 37.

    The two most drawn Lucky Stars are 2, 3 and 8.

    The least drawn numbers are 33, 36, 22, 40, 18.

    The original Lucky Stars were 1 to 9 – of those, the least drawn are 4 and 1.

    The more recently added Lucky Stars 10, 11 and 12 have been drawn less.

    In the UK, a single entry to a EuroMillions draw costs £2.50.

    EuroMillions is different to the main Lotto draw.

    HOW LONG DO WINNERS HAVE TO CLAIM THEIR PRIZE 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.

    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.

    MUM WINS LOTTO JACKPOT JUST THREE WEEKS AFTER SHE STARTED BUYING TICKETS

    The mum from Sydney scooped the whopping cash prize after buying a ticket for the Lotto Strike draw.

    She had only played the lotto a few times before her $302,379 (£162,000) win and was stunned when an official confirmed the prize.

    She said: “I only started playing about three weeks ago. I’ve been playing a few games and thought I’d give Lotto Strike a go.

    “You think your chances of winning are small – you don’t expect to win!”

    ILL FORTUNE

    They say that money can’t buy happiness – as those who’ve experienced the “lottery curse” know all too well.

    Despite hitting the jackpot, countless lotto winners have suffered astonishing tragedies from the breakdown of their marriages to losing everything they own.

    One of the very first lottery winners, 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.

    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.”

      PIE ROLLER

      They say money can’t buy you love – and it appears it can’t buy you a decent Cornish pasty in Scotland either.

      Lottery jackpot winner Adrian Bayford has quit his home in Scotland — because he missed the iconic pasties and the English pub.

      The ex-postie, 49, had relocated north of the border, having abandoned his £12million English country estate after a string of failed romances.

      But pals say the friendly millionaire — who scooped £148million in 2012 — got fed up with the fancy Scottish pies and neeps and tatties.

      The final straw came when lockdown ended and the dad-of-two realised how much he was missing English pubs — with Scottish drinking focused on bars and hotels.

      Friends said he was so bored without a decent village boozer he took up archery.

      Pals thought his country pile in Cambridgeshire had been sold, when in fact he had taken it off the market and moved back in.

      EUROMILLIONS WINNER MARGARET LOUGHREY GAVE RELATIVES £1M EACH AND JUST FINISHED DREAM HOME WHEN SHE WAS FOUND DEAD AT 56

      The 56-year-old, who claimed a £27million win eight years ago, said the money had “destroyed her” before her sad death this week.

      Neighbours say Ms Loughrey – known as ‘Maggie Millions’ – had recently transformed a derelict property nicknamed ‘the barn’ into a stunning home for herself.

      Paul Gallagher told the Belfast Telegraph: “She had been living in a bungalow next to it and the barn was just finished, I believe.

      “It’s a pity she didn’t get to enjoy her new home.”

      And he said people were “shocked” by her death.

      “Margaret was well-known and did a lot of good, charitable work around the town,” he said.

      Ms Loughrey bought the winning ticket from shop SuperValu when she was walking back home from the Job Centre.

      Margaret Loughrey handed cash to friends and family after her Lottery win.

      MAN SCOOPS £680,000 LOTTO JACKPOT BUT NEARLY MISSES OUT ON PRIZE AFTER THINKING WIN WAS ‘HOAX’ AS WIFE ‘DIDN’T BELIEVE HIM’

      The lucky winner, from Darwin, almost didn’t collect the money after being left in total disbelief when he saw all six of his numbers on the lottery app.

      “Usually, I get an email straight after the draw that tells me how close I am to winning division one,” the winner told Daily Mail Australia.

      “But this time, I didn’t, so when I woke up on Sunday morning, I logged into The Lott app and I saw I had all six numbers.

      “I thought ‘well, that’s strange’ and then I saw the prize amount, and I thought it must be some kind of hoax.”

      He was one of five winning entries in the TattsLotto draw with each person taking home £680,000 ($1,304,946.92).

      The man, who wished to remain anonymous, said it took some time for him to believe that he had scooped the massive prize.

      Cameron was fighting for life and friends of the family last night said he now faces a lengthy recovery.

      One pal said: “Cameron has been taken out of the induced coma by doctors but there is still a long way to go.”
