      How much has been raised this week alone?

      A grand total of £11,162,392 has been raised by players this week.

      Since 1994 when the National Lottery was set up, players like you have helped raise more than £45BNBillion for good causes.

      That’s everything from heritage sites like Stonehenge to grassroots organisations working to end loneliness and isolation.

      During 2021, more than 660,000 individual grants were made to good causes across the UK – the equivalent of around 235 in every UK postcode district.

      2021 was also an extraordinary year for National Lottery winners. A total of 360 players joined the exclusive millionaires club last year – that’s nearly 1 new millionaire every single day.

      What prizes can be claimed at the Post Office?

      Prizes up to £500 can be claimed at the Lottery terminal in store.

      For prizes over £500 and up to £50,000, you must take your winning ticket to the Lottery terminal for scanning and then go to the PO counter.

      AND, if you’ve been really, really lucky and won over £50,000, you will need to claim your prize in person.

      ‘Britain’s unluckiest couple’

      “BRITAIN’S unluckiest couple” unfortunately split up after missing out on a huge £3million Lottery jackpot.

      Martyn and Kay Tott were overjoyed when finding out they had bought the winning Lottery ticket back in 2001.

      But their joy quickly turned to “torture” upon discovering the ticket was missing – and a 30-day window to report it had passed.

      Martyn said the near-win “quickly highlighted our differences” and lead to bickering, with the married couple mutually agreeing their relationship had run its course.

      But he now feels the loss was a good thing, saying “there is no guarantee it would have brought me happiness”.

      The couple, who lived in Watford at the time, realised they had won an unclaimed prize six months after buying the ticket in 2001.

      How long do winners have to claim their money?

      Winners from different countries have different deadlines to claim their prize.

      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.

      Tips to help you win

      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 it up – Never play all one-number groups.
      4. Don’t pick all odd or all even numbers.
      5. Don’t play patterns.
      6. Avoid anniversaries, birthday’s and dates.
      7. Don’t Copycat – Avoid playing winning numbers that have been drawn before, because every combination has a chance of coming up once every half a million drawings.

      £1m scratchcard winner refused to give up job

      Winning £1m was sheer luck for Jamie Heavens, who purchased a Millionaire Riches Scratchcard after watching a customer in front of him do it.

      After leaving the petrol station, he pulled into a layby to scratch it off and was gobsmacked when he won.

      However, hardworking Jamie, from Bournemouth, had no intention of quitting his day job.

      Jamie told the Mirror: “It was 7.30 in the morning and I still had a day’s shift ahead… I won a million pounds and earned another £100 for my shift.”

      After that the roofer and his fiance Danielle spent £25,000 on a lavish wedding with “a band, a videographer and a massive marquee”.

      He bought a business but feels rather happy about his new job, adding: “I still work but now I’m my own boss!”

      Top scratchcard to get

      According to Oddschecker, the best scratchcard to snap up is £500 Loaded with odds of just 1 in 3.15.

      For just a fiver you could be in the running for £500.

      In second place, with the same odds, is Full of £500s which also has a top prize of £500.

      Cashword Multiplier follows close behind, which sees punters scratch off letters to reveal symbols to create full words.

        Karen Dakin, 53, won in the draw hours before Mother’s Day, with numbers based on the birth of her son Callum, 14.

        She said: “My son has, in some strange way, helped give me the most amazing Mother’s Day gift of all time!”

        She added: “I’ve always picked numbers special to me, including my son Callum’s date of birth – the year and the time – so I instantly recognised the winning numbers.

        “What an amazing turn of events.”

        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.”

          ‘Being rich doesn’t make you a better person’

          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.

          ‘Gold digger’

          ONE of Britain’s biggest EuroMillions winners has 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.

          But Gareth has now won a battle for a restraining order against his lover that bans her from bringing legal action against him, the Mirror reports.

          She claimed she had a right to publicly speak out on their tryst to defend allegations she was a “gold digger”.
