    Adrian & Gillian Bayford’s ill fortune

    Adrian and Gillian Bayford from Suffolk won £148.6 million, after exchange rates, on 10th August 2012 because they bought a Lucky Dip from a convenience store.

    When they realised they had won, they celebrated by taking their children out for pizza.

    Age is more than just a number

    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.

    Olympics star stripped of Lotto funding

    CJ UJAH has been stripped of domestic athletics funding following his Olympics drugs violation.

    The sprinter is suspended from the sport after testing positive for banned substances at the Tokyo Games in August.

    The case has gone to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and the GB team that won 4x100m relay silver behind Italy could be stripped of their medals.

    That would mean heartache for Ujah’s Tokyo team-mates Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake.

    Londoner Ujah, 27, was on Olympic Relays funding – between £21,000 and £28,000 – over the past 12 months.

    He insists he is not a cheat and denies any wrongdoing.

    ‘I’m glad I didn’t get the £3M’ says winner who lost ticket

    Martyn and Kay Tott got the shock of their lives when they realised they’d won £3million back in 2001 – six months after buying the ticket.

    By the time they saw an appeal for the winner to come forward, they couldn’t find the ticket.

    After 45 agonising days of deliberating, Camelot told the devastated couple that they weren’t going to receive the cash.

    “Having that money taken away was torture,” Martyn told the Mail on Sunday.

    “For a long time I lost sight of who I was and what I believed in. But I can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t get the £3million now.

    “There is no guarantee it would have brought me happiness.”

    Spending a penny

    Dennis and Shirley Banfield knew how to relieve their local community how to spend their £18million National Lottery win in 2018.

    The couple from Winterbourne, Bristol, paid for new lavatories at a local community centre after discovering they needed replacing.

    In 2019, Denis told the Mirror: “When we read that it needed new toilets, we donated £20,000 for the work and cut the ribbon outside the Ladies and Gents ourselves at an official ceremony

    “We joined a lunch at the centre… and a man got up to use the loo [and] said, ‘I’m just off to use the Banfields’ which really made our day!”

    Mo money mo problems

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

    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.

    Where money raised by National Lottery ticket sales went last year

    Other than money towards operating cost and a small profit, Camelot operates primarily as a social entreprise and gives away the money raise to good causes.

    Take from data of total ticket sales of £8,373.9 million in the year ending 31 March 2021, here is a breakdown of where the money goes:

    • £1,887.5 million was raised for National Lottery projects
    • £4,854.7 million was paid to players in prizes
    • £1,004.8 million went to the Government in Lottery Duty
    • £275.9 million was earned by retailers in commission

    Tale of the EuroMillions couple and the ‘lottery curse’

    Colin and Chris Weir won £161million on the EuroMillions in 2011 – making them the 22nd richest people in Scotland and propelling them onto the Sunday Times Rich List.

    They splashed out on a stunning mansion and their humble first buys included a checked sports jacket, a computer and a tractor.

    The Scottish couple initially bought Knock House near Largs, but they sold their mansion in favour of an even bigger pad in Troon. They donated much of their money and set up The Weir Charitable Trust in 2013.

    Sadly, in April 2019, the pair announced they were divorcing. They had been married for 38 years before being hit by the lottery curse, and shared two grown-up children, Carly and Jamie.

    Just three months later, Colin tragically died of kidney failure and sepsis aged 72.

    Winning couple buy dog it’s OWN field

    Dogs are often described as “man’s best friend” but it seems lucky rescue Lucy may appreciate that more than most. 

    She was found “starving and terrified” by Faye and Richard Davies after being “abandoned on the mountainside” in Brecon Beacons, Wales, back in 2018.

    Just weeks late the couple won £1million on the EuroMillions and they decided to spend some of it treating the poor pooch.

    After recognising Lucy was too scared to go out for walks, they paid £20,000 for a private field for her to play in.

    Faye told the Mirror: “She was terrified of people, of other dogs and water, so dog walks were a nightmare.

    “Then, weeks after our win, a half-acre field came up for sale just down the road [and] we bought it for Lucy.”

      Family drama

      In 2016, the Davies family won £61million on the EuroMillions.

      Stephanie Davies, then 23, reluctantly bought a ticket after mum Sonia phoned from Florida and begged her to buy one.

      Sonia, who worked as an administration assistant, was in the US having vital keyhole surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from the parathyroid glands in her neck, and had a feeling she would go on a winning streak after the op was a success.

      But even this happy family couldn’t avoid controversy as it was reported father of the family Keith, of Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, would share his cash with his daughters with ex Mandy – but his wife’s son was allegedly snubbed.

      Keith’s partner Sonia’s estranged son Spencer Pugh claimed he would not see a penny of the £61million EuroMillions win.

        EuroMillions winner wins order to gag former mistress

        ONE of Britain’s biggest EuroMillions winners won a bid to gag his former mistress after she wrote a book about their holiday romance.

        Gareth Bull, 50, was married to wife Catherine when he scooped almost £41million in 2012. Donna previously revealed how Gareth, who told her he was separated, splurged on taking her to glitzy events and luxury holidays.

        She claimed he told her their relationship had to be kept secret as he didn’t want to give his wife ammunition if they were to divorce.

        But Catherine spotted the pair on TV at an Anthony Joshua fight in 2017 and they separated later that year. Donna later said she felt “wounded” when the relationship ended and Gareth stopped talking to her.

        She was previously slapped with an injunction banning her from spilling the beans in her memoir.

        Man won £250,000 on Lottery scratchcard – but tried to con MUM out of her share

        A man who won £250,000 on a lottery scratchcard later conned his OAP mum out of tens of thousands of pounds.

        Barry Perryman, 41, won the six-figure sum with his parents seven years ago.

        But within months he was abusing his role as his mother’s carer to transfer money from her bank account, a court heard in June this year.

        Perryman, who arrived at court in a wheelchair with his leg in plaster, admitted a four-year long fraud when he appeared at Plymouth Crown Court.

        He was in a syndicate with dad Roy and mum Christine Perryman when they won £250,000 on a scratchcard bought from a Londis store in Keyham, Devon in September 2014.

        National Lottery ball number 27 is the most likely to help punters win a jackpot, researchers say.
