    EuroMillions winner celebrated by drinking tea all night

    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.

    Where does National Lottery money go?

    Around £30 million is raised every week by National Lottery players for good causes – so even if you don’t win some of the country’s most vulnerable do.

    Here are some of the organisations they work with:

    • Arts Council England
    • Sport England
    • BFI
    • UK Sport
    • Arts Council Of Wales
    • Sport Wales
    • Arts Council Of Northern Ireland

    Boob jobs for sisters

    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.

    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. 

    Lottery winner became a pig farmer

    For many, winning the jackpot means mass celebrations and ultra-expensive cars – but not for Susan Hardman.

    When the mum-of-one’s numbers came up in January 2010 she worked as a hairdresser in Eardisley, Hereford, and was “struggling financially”.

    Instead of splashing out when the £1.2million win landed in her bank account, she traded in her scissors for overalls and became a pig farmer.

    Susan claimed to be happier than ever knee-deep in mud and said bringing a piglet into the world brought her “more satisfaction” than winning the lottery.

    In 2015, she told the Daily Mail: “I was perfectly groomed, my clothes and make-up were always carefully picked out – now I always smell of pigs.

    “Ironically, these days I buy most of my clothes from second-hand charity shops… Friends think I’m crazy.”

    Susan’s life is now a far cry from her previous struggles, when she was forced to “turn down the thermostat” because she “couldn’t afford the bills”.

    Last year she told the Mirror: “When I won, I think I immediately turned the heating up and I realised I’d never be cold again.”

      Scratchcard winners jumping for joy

      Among those lucky enough to bank a small fortune on a scratchcard is Sean Irwin, who bought a £3 Ruby Doubler while popping to the shops earlier this year.

      The plumber screamed for joy after discovering he had scooped £300,000 after matching two number 22s.

      A furloughed barman and his NHS wife also nabbed a big win on a National Lottery Win All scratchcard.

      Jonny Wright, 40, said his “legs went to jelly” after realising they had bagged a £100,000 golden payout.

      And mum Sandra Davine got the shock of her life when she realised she hand won £300,000 after initially believing her winnings were just £1,000.

      Stunned Sandra said at the time: “You must be joking. There’s no way.”

      What is the UK Millionaire Maker?

      The EuroMillions millionaire maker is like a backup if you are not successful with matching the numbers. Instead if your ticket has the matching code to the draw you’ll win.

      According to the EuroMillions website, there is a 1 in 1,900,000 chance that a player could win the Millionaire Maker game on a Tuesday.

      This shrinks to 1 in approximately 2,250,000 if there is a rollover – meaning no one has won the previous draw’s jackpot.

      On a Friday, it’s estimated that there is a 1 in 2,950,000 chance of winning a guaranteed £1million.

      If there is a quadruple rollover, the odds could fall to 1 in 3,400,000.

      Winning the game depends on the number of payslips sold so the odds fluctuate from game-to-game.

      The odds can also change if there is a special event.

      In March 2019, EuroMillions created 40 UK millionaires in a one-off special draw.

        Passion project

        A woman who scooped £10,000 a month on the National Lottery Set For Life has quit her job to become a ghost hunter with her husband.

        Part-time paranormal investigator Laura Hoyle, 39, has decided to ditch her day job to pursue her spooky passion with Kirk Stevens, 37, after their big win.

        The 39-year-old is used to shocks – after realising she had landed the life-changing amount of money when she initially thought she had only won a fiver.

        Laura was able to immediately jack in her job at a logistics firm, after realising the cash could allow her to concentrate on her ghost-hunting hobby full-time.

        Explained: What is the Euromillions?

        EuroMillions was launched on February 7, 2004, by lotteries in France, Spain and the UK – with the first draw being held in Paris six days later.

        In October of that year, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland joined.

        Draws are held every Tuesday and Friday evening, with them all taking place in Paris at 8.45pm local time – 7.45pm in the UK.

        You will choose five main numbers and then two lucky stars (numbers), with prizes ranging from around £2.50 up to the jackpot.

        The prize values vary depending on ticket sales and the number of winners in each prize tier.

        Money is the root of all evil

        While a few have used their winnings for good, others have suffered heartbreak along the way, as they fall victim to the so-called lottery curse – with marriage scandals, financial feuds, violent robberies, botched cosmetic surgery and tragedy.

        Britain’s youngest lottery winner, Jane Park, received £1million from EuroMillions, but despite winning the least on our list, she made the biggest splurge.

        Just 17 at the time, she treated herself to cars, holidays, clothes and plastic surgery. But she said that winning has been a nightmare and that being a millionaire is stressful.

        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.

        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.

        'Google me'

        Gareth and his wife Catherine joked they were the most “boring multimillionaires” when they won £40.6million the EuroMillions in 2012.

        She said she wanted a new carpet for the six-bedroom home he had just built and have her hair done twice a year.

        But he eventually splashed out on a huge hospitality box at Old Trafford and another at Wembley.

        They also bought a holiday villa in Tenerife. She gave up her job and he wound down his building company.

        While it seemed to be going well for the pair, they ended up splitting up and Gareth started dating a woman named Donna Desporte, who he seduced by telling her to "Google him" in a bar in Tenerife.

        They had a nine-month fling – which ended with him ignoring and avoiding her, according to Donna.

          An Englishwoman's home is her castle

          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.

          Fraudster who swindled £2.5m in fake ticket scam still owns £466k house

          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.
