    How old do I need to be to play?

    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.

    Gambling is illegal for under-18s, but until now anyone 16 or over has been able to play National Lottery games.

    What is EuroMillions and how to play?

    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.

    Odds of winning the Millionaire Maker?

    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.

    What is UK Millionaire Maker in EuroMillions draw?

    For every EuroMillions line played, players automatically receive a UK Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket.

    The draw guarantees one lucky player will win a sum of £1million.

    A code consists of four letters and five numbers.

    It's then entered into a raffle and selected at random.

    There used to be two guaranteed millionaire raffle winners per EuroMillions draw, but this was reverted to one in January 2019.

    What happens to the EuroMillions money if no one claims it?

    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."

      Some star signs are luckier than others

      Well, according to the stars some signs are luckier than others, so read on and see if you should pop out and buy that winning lotto ticket. It could be you!

      Leo – Oh, Leo we knew you’d be one of the lucky ones. You always look good, have a string of admirers and just tend to always be prowling on the bright side of the street.

      Virgo – It’s no coincidence that planner extraordinaire is one of the luckiest signs of the zodiac. Virgos only become successful because they put in the hours and werk, girl.

      The unexpected win

      Like many people who play the lottery, Patrick and Frances Connolly “always hoped” they would win but didn’t have high hopes.

      But two years ago, on New Year’s Day, they scooped £114,969,775 on the EuroMillions after playing every week for years. 

      When the couple, from County Armagh, Northern Ireland, found out about the “life-changing” sum, they modestly celebrated with “a cup of tea and a hug”.

      They told ITV: “I always hoped we would win the lottery one day, but when we did, it would be just our luck that lots of others would win on the same day with the same numbers too.

      “Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would ever win almost £115 million.”

      ‘I sill shop in Primark despite winning £1.8m’

      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.

        Some Lottery winners haven’t told ANYONE about their money

        The man who looks after lottery winners says he has advised some people who have never told a single soul, and that he will “never know” himself how it feels to win big.

        Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, has seen “all sorts” of reactions in his 15 years dealing with lucky ticketholders.

        “I’ve seen people be sick with excitement, I’ve seen people resign their job on the spot, I’ve seen people jumping up and down, I’ve known husbands who haven’t told wives and wives who haven’t told husbands, I’ve been to homes where there’s literally a party going on already,” he told the PA news agency.

        Callie rogers campaigning to raise legal age limit

        Callie is now campaigning for the government to raise the age limit for the National Lottery.

        Gambling is now more popular among children than skateboarding and campaigners believe an age limit of 16 entices young people into a habit of betting.

        Callie feels she was too young to cope with the pressure and wants to stop other kids going through the same problems she faced.

        She told the Mirror: "You are only a 16, with all that responsibility. At that age, you can get the best advice ever. But you are not in a position to listen. I was too young.

        "I suffer from such bad anxiety when I am going to meet new people. It preys on my mind, what a new partner’s family will think of me, or even new friends.

        "I still get abuse just because of who I am.”

        When did Callie Rogers win the Lottery and how much did she win?

        Callie won just under £1.9million in 2003.

        Callie forked out £11,500 on two boob jobs, £300,000 on clothes, make-up and tattoos, £85,000 on top-of-the-range sports cars, and a quarter of a million pounds on cocaine.

        Callie spent a further £250,000 on holidays to locations including Mexico and EuroDisney, £118,000 on gifts to former boyfriends, £190,000 in un-returned loans to friends and family members, and £50,500 on solicitors' fees.

        Callie says she believes she was too young to bag such a huge sum – leaving her with nothing but trouble.

        She added: “It was too much money for someone so young. Even if you say your life won’t change, it does and often not for the better.”

        Callie insists she is much happier now she lives a "normal" life.

        She said: “The pressure to splash out and live a glam party life has gone – and I prefer it.”

        Team GB star CJ Ujah stripped of National Lottery funding over failed drug test

        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.
