    ‘Money made my close relatives demanding and greedy’

    Euromillions mum Gillian Bayford is locked in a family feud over her share of a £148million jackpot.

    Gillian, 44, accused her dad Ian McCulloch, 72, of trying to seize control of the fortune she won with her ex Adrian Bayford, 46.

    The Dundee mum of two blasted Ian, mum Brenda and brother Colin, 42, saying: “It made them bitter and greedy.”

    And she told how she gave them a £20million slice of her fortune — only for them to come back for more.

    Gillian, who runs a property firm in Dundee, said: “It’s upsetting and it’s raw. The money was supposed to make everybody happy.

    “But it’s made my close relatives demanding and greedy.”

    Your guide to playing the 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.

    ‘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.

    Explained: What happens to unclaimed prizes?

    Any cash that isn’t claimed after a total of 180 days from a game played in the UK goes to National Lottery projects across the country.

    Folks in Ireland have just half that time to claim too, with only 90 days before the prize money is off the table.

    Once the claim period is over, the ticket officially expires and the owner of the lottery ticket will no longer be able to claim any of their winnings.

    But after that time has expired, any unclaimed prizes, plus any interest they might have accumulated in that time, are allocated to the National Lottery’s Good Causes fund instead.

    This will usually then go on to help fund things like sport programmes or local community buildings or other projects.

    Lotto millionaire dubbed Mr Sensible for investing with Queen’s bank

    Rule shake up means have to be 18 for scratch cards

    A major rules shake-up to National Lottery tickets and scratch card will change who is able to buy tickets from October this year.

    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.

    The new rules come into effect from today after being announced as part of a major crackdown on gambling laws last year.

    Online sales of lottery tickets and scratch cards have already been banned – this came into force in April this year.

    Some of the UK’s richest winners

    Frances and Patrick Connolly: £114,969,775

    The grandparents, from County Armagh in Northern Island, saw in the year 2019 in style after scooping the enormous jackpot on New Year’s Day.

    In December 2020, the selfless pair revealed they’d given away half their winnings after making a list of 50 friends and family they wanted to help.

    The pair, who won the jackpot after buying a Lucky Dip ticket online, checked their numbers on several websites before it sunk in that they were the winners.

    When they realised, they celebrated with a cuppa and a hug.

    Sliding back in his chair in disbelief, he then turned to partner of 30 years Frances, and asked her: “Do you want the good news…?”

    Speaking at a press conference three days later, Patrick said: “We really didn’t know what to do or how to react and we didn’t sleep a wink that night.

    “We rang Camelot at 8am in the morning to verify the win. Then it started to dawn on us that it was true even though it still hasn’t really sunk in.”

    Top tips for playing the lottery

    Have you ever wondered the secrets to winning big in the lottery? Is it pure luck or is there a system to it…?

    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 up your numbers.
    4. Even it out – Don’t pick all odd or all even numbers.
    5. Split from the crowd, so don’t play patterns.
    6. Apparently, you should avoid anniversaries, birthday’s and dates.
    7. Avoid playing winning numbers that have been drawn before, because every combination has a chance of coming up once every half a million drawings.

    Just keep swimming

    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.

    Rolling in it

    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.
