    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.”

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Scorpio – Magnanimous Scorpio has definitely got it going on when it comes to luck. They’ll often find themselves in the right place at the right time as if by magic, much to the annoyance of some less fortunate souls.

      Explained: What is the Double Rollover?

      National Lottery rollovers exist so that jackpots can increase in value when they are not won, which creates more excitement for players as there is a chance to win an even bigger prize in the next draw.

      This means that if a jackpot has rolled over two, three or even four times, it would be referred to it as a double rollover, triple rollover or quadruple rollover.

      Tonight’s draw is a Double Rollover and is worth £7.3M.

      What draw is on tonight?

      Tonight’s draw is the Double Rollover, where players can win £7.3M.

      Players must pick six numbers from 1-59 or go with a Lucky Dip to have their numbers randomly generated.

      The Double Rollover is on Wednesdays and Sundays.

      You can buy Lotto tickets online every day from 6am until 11pm. But remember, to play on a draw day, you’ll need to buy your ticket before 7.30pm.

        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.”

        Lotto curse

        A LOTTO winner blew his £6.5million fortune on cars, homes and dodgy business ventures before eventually being made homeless.

        Lee Ryan, who hit the jackpot in 1995, said his win was nothing but a “curse”.

        He scooped the whopping cash prize just weeks before going to jail for handling stolen cars.

        But after years of high living and bad investments, the former millionaire was last known to be renting a two-room flat in south London and earning less than £10,000.

        Ryan insisted in 2014 that he was happier being broke than he had ever been as a millionaire.

        The ex-lotto winner, now in his 60s, scooped the stellar jackpot in March 1995 at the same time he was awaiting trial.

        ‘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.

          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.

          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.

          Lucky Lotto

          Sandra Devine, 36, accidentally won £300k – she intended to buy her usual £100 National Lottery Scratchcard, but came home with a much bigger prize.

          The biggest jackpot ever to be up for grabs was £66million in January last year (2020), which was won by two lucky ticket holders.

          Meanwhile, a school dinner lady has vowed to carry on working after rustling up a £1million Lottery win.

          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 planned to buy a new house as well as a car for NHS storeman hubby Jeff, 60, who had a serious stroke in 2018.
