    ‘We wonn £115m, then gave our winnings away’

    A £115million jackpot is probably enough to not just change your life, but the lives of everyone you’ve ever cared about too.

    Which is probably why Frances and Patrick Connolly decided to give over half of their winnings to 175 people.

    “We won £114,969,775.70 and we have given away more than half,” Frances said last year.

    “That’s £60million-worth of love. And the thing that makes me even happier is that every single person we gave money to has passed some of it on to other people. I can’t think of a day since winning the Lottery that I haven’t smiled.”

    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.”

      How many times can the EuroMillions be rolled over?

      The original rules of EuroMillions allowed the jackpot to roll 11 times before the Must Be Won draw.

      New rules introduced in 2016, stated that the top prize would stay at its cap for four draws before having to be won in the next draw.

      When must a EuroMillions jackpot be won?

      According to the regulations, Euromillions must be won when the jackpot has stayed at £185 million cap for four consecutive draws.

      The fifth draw at the cap is a Must Be Won draw which means that all the prize money will be awarded even if there is no one to match all five numbers and both Lucky Stars.

      In that case, the jackpot money moves to the next tier where there are winners, for example, Match 5 plus one Lucky Star.

      If there are no winners in that category either, the jackpot rolls down to the next category.

      Begging bowl (continued)

      Writing on Reddit's popular 'Am I the A******' thread, she wrote: “My nephew has a fully funded college fund and every material thing he could ever want.”

      The aunt said she told her sister she felt she "was being very generous because I really need all of it." 

      “She actually hung up on me. I texted my nephew and I think he actually blocked me”, she added.

      She continued to make the case for her position, saying: “Here's the thing, I NEED this money. It's a matter of me eating or not eating. He doesn't. 

      “Am I the a******e for thinking he should share the winnings of the gift I gave him?”

      Begging bowl

      A woman has divided opinion online after she bought her nephew a winning lottery ticket – then asked for some of the cash. 

      The aunt shared her situation on Reddit, explaining she’d fallen on hard times, and was living hand-to-mouth as she tried to pay her bills. 

      She said she “scraped together” some change to buy her a nephew a birthday present, and got the only thing she could afford – lottery tickets. 

      She said she was shocked when he won more than five figures.

      But she provoked fury when she said she asked her sister if she could have THREE-QUARTERS of the money.

      The catering girls

      A group of NHS dinner ladies who call themselves the "Catering Girls" ditched their jobs after scooping a £25m lottery jackpot in November 2017.

      The lucky six all quit the health service after scooping the EuroMillions prize of £25,476,778.30.

      The "Catering Girls" have been playing together for six years at their hospital in Port Talbot, South Wales.

      They promised to have “one hell of a Christmas”.

      In November 2018 they revealed that despite quitting their jobs, their lives are very much the same despite being millionaires.

      Happiness to hell

      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.

      Ex trouble

      Bev Doran won £14million on the EuroMillions in 2017.

      But she struggled with the life-changing sum as she feared her ex would launch legal action to get his hands on a share of her £14.5million EuroMillions jackpot.

      The single mum-of-four had split from Sean Priestley just seven months before her win, after 12 years and three kids together.

      Pals explained how she was seeking legal advice amid concerns skint Sean would try to mount a case to stake a claim on her new-found riches.

      One said: "He doesn't deserve a single penny of it. She's getting advice at the moment and that's one area she's looking at."

      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.

      Generous couple celebrated with a cup of tea

      Frances and Patrick Connolly, from County Armagh in Northern Ireland, celebrated an (extremely) lucky dip win with a cup of tea, after first thinking it was a scam.

      Their exact prize pot was £114,969,755.70, shooting the couple towards the upper-half of lottery winners in the country.

      The generous pair – a retired teacher and businessman – said one of the first things they did was sit down and write a list of 50 people they want to share the money with.

      The pair proved the most generous of all winners when it was revealed last year they'd given away more than half of their cash to loved ones, charity and those in need during the pandemic.

      '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.

      Spending a penny

      Retirees Dennis and Shirley Banfield appeared to have gone a little potty when plotting 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.

      They were determined to give something back after visiting the venue for countless celebrations including wedding receptions, anniversaries and children’s parties.

      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!"

      Money can't buy you happiness (continued)

      Jane Parks' excessive spending and the difficulties that came with her riches were laid bare in the 2014 BBC documentary Teenage Millionaire: The Year I Won The Lottery.

      She has since admitted that winning has been a nightmare and that being a millionaire is stressful.

      “I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life?” she told the Sunday People.

      "I thought it would make [my life] ten times better but it’s made it ten times worse.

      "I wish I had no money most days. I say to myself, 'My life would be so much easier if I hadn’t won'."
