    Just keep swimming

    Well, it’s good news if you’re born in February or March.

    According to research from Lott and MailOnline, dreamy Pisces is the luckiest sign of the zodiac when it comes to winning the lottery.

    The data, which was based on those winning the top lottery jackpot, found that 11.6% of the winners were Pisces – meaning, on average, they were more likely to pick the golden ticket.

    Go-with the-flow Pisces will stumble upon extraordinarily lucky breaks and often find themselves effortlessly attracting most things on their wish list.

    So, Pisces, if you’re reading this maybe you should get down to the shops and buy a lottery ticket.

    A very British celebration

    While most lottery winners would be tempted to splash out on fancy Champagne, Anne Canavan had very different plans.

    The mum, from Northern Ireland, couldn’t believe her luck and felt fate had intervened after her £1million EuroMillions win in 2015.

    On the day she picked the winning numbers, Anne joked with a neighbour that it was “about time someone from around here won”.

    Normally she “always waited a week” before checking her lottery ticket but that night things were different. 

    “At 1am, I suddenly had the urge to check the results so I switched my laptop on, when I realised I’d won I woke my daughter up,” she recalled.

    “It took half an hour to convince her that I wasn’t joking, and after that we stayed up all night with cups of tea planning what to do with the money.”

    Anne went on to spend £50,000 renovating her four-bedroom house and funnelled other funds into inventions – including self-sealing gift pouches.

    Lottery with the best odds UK

    The game with the best odds, in terms of winning the top prize, is the Thunderball.

    According to the National Lottery website, the odds of winning the jackpots are:

    • Lotto jackpot: 1 in 45,057,474.
    • EuroMillions jackpot: 1 in 139,838,160.
    • Set For Life top prize: 1 in 15,339,390.
    • Thunderball top prize: 1 in 8,060,598.

    What’s the scratchcard with the best odds?

    According to Oddschecker, the best scratchcard to snap up is £500 Loaded with odds of just 1 in 3.15.

    For just a fiver you could be in the running for £500.

    In second place, with the same odds, is Full of £500s which also has a top prize of £500.

    Cashword Multiplier follows close behind, which sees punters scratch off letters to reveal symbols to create full words.

    Explained: What happens to unclaimed prizes?

    Any cash that isn’t claimed after a total of 180 days from a game played in the UK goes to National Lottery projects across the country.

    Folks in Ireland have just half that time to claim too, with only 90 days before the prize money is off the table.

    Once the claim period is over, the ticket officially expires and the owner of the lottery ticket will no longer be able to claim any of their winnings.

    But after that time has expired, any unclaimed prizes, plus any interest they might have accumulated in that time, are allocated to the National Lottery’s Good Causes fund instead.

    This will usually then go on to help fund things like sport programmes or local community buildings or other projects.

    Lotto tips to help win

    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 it up – Never play all one-number groups.
    4. Don’t pick all odd or all even numbers.
    5. Don’t play patterns.
    6. Avoid anniversaries, birthday’s and dates.
    7. Don’t Copycat – Avoid playing winning numbers that have been drawn before, because every combination has a chance of coming up once every half a million drawings.

    Gifts for the girls (continued)

    Sarah, who said she “loved” her surgically enhanced chest, also went back to university so that her mum could have a “picture of me graduating”.

    Eight years after winning the lottery she decided to quit her job as a social worker and pursue modelling opportunities, where she’s found ultimate happiness. 

    “Up until now there’s no bad part of being a millionaire – I’ve loved every minute,” Sarah added.

      Gifts for the girls

      Sarah Cockings from Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear won a whopping £3million in April 2005 when she was just 21.

      She claimed to “live a very normal life” despite her vast fortune, and after the money dropped in her account she treated her siblings Emma and Alex to matching boob jobs.

      “Just after I won, I bought my two sisters boob jobs but now I’ve had one myself, because mine were wrecked by breastfeeding,” she told the Daily Mail in 2019.

      What happens if no one claims a prize?

      If no UK players come forward within 180 days then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated while it is held in trust, goes to National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

      The National Lottery have said: “Our players change the lives of individuals as well as communities by raising, on average, over £33 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.”

      Lottery fraud

      A RAPIST who scammed millions on the Lotto ten years ago still owns a posh four-bedroom house he allegedly bought with the tainted dosh.

      The home in commuter haven Kings Langley, Herts, just minutes from the M25 has fallen into serious disrepair.

      Docs show it is still owned by convicted rapist and fraudster Edward Putnam who is currently serving nine years for his despicable part in the biggest scam to ever hit the National Lottery.

      He was jailed for seven years in 1993 for raping a terrified pregnant 17-year-old girl.

      Putnam, now 56, “scooped” £2.5 million on the National Lottery in 2009 after conspiring with a Camelot employee to craft a fake ticket.

      Lotto couple robbed at knifepoint

      Dave and Angela Dawes couldn’t believe their luck when they scooped a incredible £101,203,600.

      And shift supervisor Dave and his charity volunteer wife Angela, from Wisbech in Cambridgeshire, ensured they shared the love with their nearest and dearest.

      The pair are reported to have handed out £30million to their family and closest friends, while also setting up a charity.

      Treating themselves, the pair bought a £4 million home, Socknersh Manor, in Burwash, East Sussex – previously owned by the likes of Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck.

      However, they went through hell last year when they were tied up and robbed by a gang at their luxury home.

      The robbers fled with jewellery and around £20,000 cash in the couple’s Range Rover. They later beefed up security at their home to protect themselves.

      Bad numbers

      Britain’s unluckiest woman lost out on the £178mil Euromillions jackpot – because each of her numbers was just one digit away from the winning seven balls.

      Tayla Octave, 19, could not believe it when she checked her lucky dip row against February’s mega draw and saw she had been so close to scooping the top prize – which you only have a one in 139,838,160 chance of winning.

      Marketing apprentice Tayla’s row was 5, 13, 24, 45, 49, with Lucky Stars 6 and 11 and the winning numbers were 4, 12, 25, 46, 48, 7 and 12.

      She told The Sun: “I’m just gutted. It’s a long shot to win the lottery anyway but to be so close is heart-breaking.

      “At first I just saw I hadn’t won anything but then I went through and compared them side by side and that’s when I realised that every single number I had was just one away from the winning ones.”

      ‘Money made my close relatives demanding and greedy’

      Euromillions mum Gillian Bayford is locked in a family feud over her share of a £148million jackpot.

      Gillian, 44, accused her dad Ian McCulloch, 72, of trying to seize control of the fortune she won with her ex Adrian Bayford, 46.

      The Dundee mum of two blasted Ian, mum Brenda and brother Colin, 42, saying: “It made them bitter and greedy.”

      And she told how she gave them a £20million slice of her fortune — only for them to come back for more.

      Gillian, who runs a property firm in Dundee, said: “It’s upsetting and it’s raw. The money was supposed to make everybody happy.

      “But it’s made my close relatives demanding and greedy.”

      Your guide to playing the odds

      Firstly, select the right game. The lottery could mean one of several games – each with different odds and jackpots.

      Playing a game with smaller odds gives you a better chance of winning.

      Secondly, buy more tickets. This sounds obvious, but there are several ways to do this.

      Aside from simply splashing out more yourself, one way of increasing your odds of winning is to join a syndicate or pool.

      This could be made up of friends, family, colleagues or even strangers – it doesn’t matter.

      A syndicate or pool is a group of people who purchase a set number of tickets and agree to share any prizes out equally, whoever wins.

      ‘Being rich doesn’t make you a better person’

      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.
