      The first man ever to win twice in the same draw

      Derek and Dawn Ladner, from Redruth, Cornwall, were thrilled when the same six numbers they used every week finally came up in the midweek lottery draw.

      They initially claimed £479,142 from the £2,395,710 jackpot due to bagging the top prize with five other winners.

      However, a week later Derek, then 57, was in for quite the shock when he found a second lottery ticket in his pocket. 

      It was from that same winning draw and thanks to his forgetfulness – when he bet twice with the same lucky numbers – their winnings increased to £958,284.

      ‘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.

      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.

      In Austria, winners have a whole three years to claim the prize before it is returned to the lottery and used to fund boosted prizes.

      Belgian winners, on the other hand, only have around 140 days before the money is returned to the Belgian National Lottery.

      The least amount of time to snap up the jackpot goes to France and Luxembourg.

      Winners from Ireland, Portugal and Spain all have around 90 days to tell the world they’ve won.

      Callie Rogers campaigns

      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.”

        What if…

        Euromillions winner Adrian Bayford is “consumed with guilt” as his son fights for life after a horror quad bike smash, friends say.

        The lad, 13, was hit by a car driven by his sister, 15, in the sprawling grounds of their Cambridgeshire mansion.

        The Sun exclusively revealed details of the horror smash as the boy is fighting for his life in intensive care with his family at his bedside.

        His sister raised the alarm after her brother was flung from his machine and through a fence.

        It is understood the car and quad bike were gifts bought for the kids by former postie Adrian, 49.

        ‘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.”

        Top tips for playing the lottery

        Have you ever wondered the secrets to winning big in the lottery? Is it pure luck or is there a system to it…?

        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 up your numbers.
        4. Even it out – Don’t pick all odd or all even numbers.
        5. Split from the crowd, so don’t play patterns.
        6. Apparently, you should avoid anniversaries, birthday’s and dates.
        7. Avoid playing winning numbers that have been drawn before, because every combination has a chance of coming up once every half a million drawings.

        Why do Rollovers happen?

        Rollovers help increase the size of a jackpot, as ticket sales and funds from the previous draw are added to the value of the top prize.

        As the advertised prize rises, more people tend to buy tickets as they hope for a huge win. Playing for the same amount week after week won’t create the same amount of excitement – or ticket sales – as a rapidly-growing jackpot.

        Lotto has a rollover limit rather than a jackpot cap, ensuring that the top prize is won on a regular basis. The jackpot is only permitted to roll over five times in a row and it must then be won in the next draw.
