      Can lottery winners remain anonymous in the UK?

      Absolutely! Lottery winners can keep their anonymity in the UK.

      There is also a common myth or misconception that remaining anonymous affects the amount of money you win.

      However, this is absolutely false and your decision about whether or not to go public has no bearing on your jackpot.

      ‘Physically sick’ after scooping HUGE £3.8M jackpot

      Diane Bate, 70, was in “total disbelief” after winning the multi-million pound prize in the Lotto draw on December 12. 

      Diane said: “I checked my ticket early on Sunday morning using the National Lottery app when it made a funny sound.

      “I looked at the amount and couldn’t quite believe my eyes, I thought, ‘surely that can’t be right?!’ The most I have ever won before is £100.

      “I was in total disbelief so I woke Michael up to check the ticket – he wasn’t happy but we’ve been married 52 years so he soon got over it!

      “I still didn’t believe it, so I also checked it with my granddaughter too. 

      “I must have checked it about six times in total before I started to believe it was real, and at that point, I was physically sick!”

      Winner, winner, chicken dinner

      A group of NHS dinner ladies who call themselves the “Catering Girls” ditched their jobs after scooping a £25m lottery jackpot in November 2017.

      The lucky six all quit the health service after scooping the EuroMillions prize of £25,476,778.30.

      The “Catering Girls” have been playing together for six years at their hospital in Port Talbot, South Wales.

      They promised to have “one hell of a Christmas”.

      In November 2018 they revealed that despite quitting their jobs, their lives are very much the same despite being millionaires.

        Lucky Leo

        According to the stars, it seems that some of us are much more likely to win than others.

        Before we get to the big reveal of which sign is most likely to pick the right balls and become a millionaire, let’s take a look at some of the other lucky stars in the zodiac.

        • Leo
        • Virgo
        • Scorpio

        Ghosthunters

        A woman who scooped £10,000 a month on the National Lottery Set For Life has quit her job to become a ghost hunter with her husband.

        Part-time paranormal investigator Laura Hoyle, 39, has decided to ditch her day job to pursue her spooky passion with Kirk Stevens, 37, after their big win.

        The 39-year-old is used to shocks – after realising she had landed the life-changing amount of money when she initially thought she had only won a fiver.

        Laura was able to immediately jack in her job at a logistics firm, after realising the cash could allow her to concentrate on her ghost-hunting hobby full-time.

        Lotto ‘winner’ is declared a millionaire live on TV before prize is TAKEN AWAY

        Swiss Andreas Bürkli was the draw's lucky winner just for a few seconds after his win had to be cancelled due to technical problems.

        The draw took place on the Swiss TV show Happy Day back in 2018 when German singer Herbert Grönemeyer pulled Bürkli's name out of a drum.

        For mere seconds it seemed that the winner was about to have his life changed as a ticker-tape fanfare and a briefcase filled with cash were presented.

        But unfortunately, the draw had to be annulled thanks to a technical blunder.

        Swiss public TV channel SRF was forced to issue an apology to the man but he was reportedly a "good sport" about the mistake.

        What is the UK Millionaire Maker?

        The Euromillions millionaire maker is like a backup if you are not successful with matching the numbers. Instead if your ticket has the matching code to the draw you’ll win.

        According to the EuroMillions website, there is a 1 in 1,900,000 chance that a player could win the Millionaire Maker game on a Tuesday.

        This shrinks to 1 in approximately 2,250,000 if there is a rollover – meaning no one has won the previous draw’s jackpot.

        On a Friday, it’s estimated that there is a 1 in 2,950,000 chance of winning a guaranteed £1million.

        If there is a quadruple rollover, the odds could fall to 1 in 3,400,000.

        Winning the game depends on the number of payslips sold so the odds fluctuate from game-to-game.

        The odds can also change if there is a special event.

        In March 2019, EuroMillions created 40 UK millionaires in a one-off special draw.

        Can lottery winners remain anonymous in the UK?

        Absolutely! Lottery winners can keep their anonymity in the UK.

        There is also a common myth or misconception that remaining anonymous affects the amount of money you win.

        However, this is absolutely false and your decision about whether or not to go public has no bearing on your jackpot.

        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.

          Mum scooped £300,000 on Lottery scratch card

          A mum realised she had won £300,000 on a National Lottery scratch card after initially believing her winnings were just £1,000.

          Sandra Davine only discovered her huge winnings after a life-changing phone call to a lottery line operator in December last year.

          Sandra declared that she thought she had won £1,000 – enquiring as to how it could be claimed.

          But unbeknown to her, her day was about a get a lot better as the phone line operator confirmed that she had actually scooped a whopping £300,000.

          A stunned Sandra, of Renfrewshire, Scotland, can be heard saying: “You must be joking. There’s no way.”

          ‘I still 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 happens if no one claims a prize?

            If no UK players come forward within 180 days then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated while it is held in trust, goes to National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

            The National Lottery have said: “Our players change the lives of individuals as well as communities by raising, on average, over £33 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.”
