    From luxury splurges to homelessness

    Ex-jailbird Lee Ryan scooped the £6.5million jackpot just 17 weeks after the lottery was launched on November 14 1994. He made headlines when it emerged he was accused of handling stolen cars and was imprisoned for 18 months after his huge payout.

    Lee then spent a decade living the high life and splashed his car on luxury cars, a helicopter and a £2million mansion.

    But Lee ended up penniless, spent two years living on the street and shacked up in a tiny flat in London he shared with homeless pals.

    “The money was cursed because I took the p**s out of God when I asked him to make me a multimillionaire. My cellmate warned me to be careful what I wished for,” he said.

    Lee ended up splitting with Karen Taylor, his girlfriend of eight years, and moved to London where he met a 25-year-old from Kyrgyzstan.

    They took an ill-fated trip to the Central Asian country where Lee attempted to invest the last of his winnings in property.

    Money doesn't buy happiness

    For many, winning the jackpot means mass celebrations and ultra-expensive cars – but not for Susan Hardman.

    When the mum-of-one’s numbers came up in January 2010 she worked as a hairdresser in Eardisley, Hereford, and was “struggling financially”.

    Instead of splashing out when the £1.2million win landed in her bank account, she traded in her scissors for overalls and became a pig farmer.

    Susan claimed to be happier than ever knee-deep in mud and said bringing a piglet into the world brought her “more satisfaction” than winning the lottery.

    Still living in a council house

    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.

      £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!”

      A woman has divided opinion online after she bought her nephew a winning lottery ticket – then asked for some of the cash. 

      The aunt shared her situation on Reddit, explaining she’d fallen on hard times, and was living hand-to-mouth as she tried to pay her bills. 

      She said she “scraped together” some change to buy her a nephew a birthday present, and got the only thing she could afford – lottery tickets. 

      She said she was shocked when he won more than five figures.

      But she provoked fury when she said she asked her sister if she could have THREE-QUARTERS of the money.

      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.

        '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.”

        The unluckiest players of all time?

        A young couple missed out on the £182million Euromillions jackpot  when they realised their winning ticket payment hadn’t gone through.

        Rachel Kennedy, 19, and Liam McCrohan, 21, from Hertfordshire were “absolutely heartbroken” when they realised their usual numbers had come up, but they had won nothing.

        The couple, both students, had played the winning numbers of 6, 12, 22, 29, 33, 6 and 11 for five weeks in a row before all seven digits appeared in the draw.

        Rachel’s account was set up to automatically buy a Euromillions ticket with her usual numbers but because her account did not have the right funds, the ticket payment did not go through.

        “I called the number thinking that I had won £182million and they said ‘yeah you’ve got the right numbers but you didn’t have the funds in your account for the payment of the ticket so it didn’t actually go through’,” Rachel said.

        We won the lottery – and then made our friends rich

        A £115million jackpot is probably enough to not just change your life, but the lives of everyone you’ve ever cared about too.

        Which is probably why Frances and Patrick Connolly decided to give over half of their winnings to 175 people.

        “We won £114,969,775.70 and we have given away more than half,” Frances said last year.

        “That’s £60million-worth of love. And the thing that makes me even happier is that every single person we gave money to has passed some of it on to other people. I can’t think of a day since winning the Lottery that I haven’t smiled.”
