    WHAT WAS THE FIRST HOUSE EUROMILLIONS WINNER JANE PARK BOUGHT?

    Jane Park was Britain’s youngest EuroMillions winner when she scooped her £1million jackpot in 2013.

    The Edinburgh socialite moved out of the council house she shared with her mum after buying a three-bed home.

    Jane took pride in transforming it with dazzling décor, including flowers in many rooms, mirrored furniture, and coloured with cool greys and monochrome tones.

    With a fabulous, open plan kitchen complete with a lavish marble island, the cooking area lead to patio doors which opened into the garden.

    However she sold the house in 2016 to move back in with her mum after admitting she was lonely.

    EXPLAINED: HOW LONG DO WINNERS HAVE TO CLAIM THEIR PRIZE 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.

      LOTTERY CHANCES: 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.

      EUROMILLIONS WINNER MARGARET LOUGHREY GAVE RELATIVES £1M EACH AND JUST FINISHED DREAM HOME WHEN SHE WAS FOUND DEAD AT 56

      The 56-year-old, who claimed a £27million win eight years ago, said the money had “destroyed her” before her sad death this week.

      Neighbours say Ms Loughrey – known as ‘Maggie Millions’ – had recently transformed a derelict property nicknamed ‘the barn’ into a stunning home for herself.

      Paul Gallagher told the Belfast Telegraph: “She had been living in a bungalow next to it and the barn was just finished, I believe.

      “It’s a pity she didn’t get to enjoy her new home.”

      And he said people were “shocked” by her death.

      “Margaret was well-known and did a lot of good, charitable work around the town,” he said.

      Ms Loughrey bought the winning ticket from shop SuperValu when she was walking back home from the Job Centre.

      ‘I’M GLAD I DIDN’T GET THE £3M’

      Martyn and Kay Tott got the shock of their lives when they realised they’d won £3million back in 2001 – six months after buying the ticket.

      By the time they saw an appeal for the winner to come forward, they couldn’t find the ticket.

      After 45 agonising days of deliberating, Camelot told the devastated couple that they weren’t going to receive the cash.

      “Having that money taken away was torture,” Martyn told the Mail on Sunday.

      “For a long time I lost sight of who I was and what I believed in. But I can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t get the £3million now.

      “There is no guarantee it would have brought me happiness.”

      BOLTON’S DEAF COMMUNITY SAYS THANK YOU

      Charity worker reveals how the National Lottery funding helped transform his life.

      Imagine growing up unable to understand the people around you, and having no way of communicating except through gestures.

      This was the world Philip Bridge faced as a child after being born with a genetic disorder called Waardenburg syndrome, which left him profoundly Deaf.

      “My family didn’t know sign language, so they’d be talking to each other and I couldn’t join in,” Philip says. “Mum did her best to talk to me, but it was hard for us to understand each other. I wanted to get involved but felt left out.

      “I ended up playing on my own a lot – I was frustrated, and really struggled. I went to a mainstream school where making friends for me was difficult, so I’d just play football with the kid next door.”

      Philip, now 42, was 16 when he started to learn British Sign Language, which is when he began to blossom.

      “I was learning sign language at Bolton College when a friend recommended that I join the Bolton Deaf Society (BDS),” he says. “It was quite a shock for me at first, as I hadn’t had much connection with the Deaf community before, but it was fantastic to suddenly make friends. We’d go out as a group to pubs and other Deaf clubs and feel safer together.”

      WHAT NUMBERS DO MOST PEOPLE CHOOSE?

      A lot of people doing the EuroMillions pick a lucky dip to get their numbers.

      Lottoland advises that people should avoid popular numbers, like 1-31, as people tend to opt for their birth date.

      This means if these numbers come up more people will have them and the winning amount will be divided between more people.

      They also suggest avoidance of a sequence of numbers.

      HOW DID JOHN ROBERTS LOSE HIS MONEY?

      John Roberts, from Edinburgh, won a massive £3.1million back in 1998.

      But just three years later the security guard was penniless after blowing his money on cars, houses and luxury holidays.

      One of his first big buys was a massive Tudor mansion in Blackpool, which he moved his wife, Linda, and five children into.

      The five-bedroom detached home was worth around £160,000 when he bought it – and was a far cry from their council flat in Pilton, Edinburgh.

      The seaside house was called Balmoral, after the couple’s favourite Scottish beauty spot.

      In 2001, John moved out of the home and moved in with his cousin. At that time, it was worth £250,000

      John is now rumoured to be living on handouts from friends and family after his marriage fell apart, and was said to be living in a caravan at one time.

        WHAT ARE THE BEST TIPS FOR WINNING THE LOTTERY?

        Obviously, there is no way to predict the winning numbers in the lottery. Each draw is completely random.

        But there are ways to increase your odds.

        Firstly, select the right game. The lottery could mean one of several games – each with different odds and jackpots.

        Playing a game with smaller odds gives you a better chance of winning.

        Secondly, buy more tickets. This sounds obvious, but there are several ways to do this.

        Aside from simply splashing out more yourself, one way of increasing your odds of winning is to join a syndicate or pool.

        This could be made up of friends, family, colleagues or even strangers – it doesn’t matter.

        A syndicate or pool is a group of people who purchase a set number of tickets and agree to share any prizes out equally, whoever wins.

        WHICH STAR SIGN MOST LIKELY TO PICK THE RIGHT WINNING NUMBERS?

        The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Which sign is most likely to win the lottery? Well, it’s good news if you’re born in February or March.

        According to research from Lott and MailOnline, dreamy Pisces is the luckiest sign of the zodiac when it comes to winning the lottery.

        The data, which was based on those winning the top lottery jackpot, found that 11.6% of the winners were Pisces – meaning, on average, they were more likely to pick the golden ticket.

        Go-with the-flow Pisces will stumble upon extraordinarily lucky breaks and often find themselves effortlessly attracting most things on their wish list.

        So, Pisces, if you’re reading this maybe you should get down to the shops and buy a lottery ticket.
