Lottery winners. Love them or hate them but we all want to be them! Open your browser and there’s the latest lotto winner, in all their glory. Smiling from ear to ear, popping champagne, holding the great big cheque and telling the world how they are going to spend their millions.
It’s these lottery players that went out of their way to buy lotto tickets. Whether they bought their lotto tickets online or at the local corner store while picking up a pint of milk, the fact is, they had a lotto ticket and the chance to win all that money.
So where do they come from? How did they choose their numbers? And where did they stash the winning lotto ticket?
Where would you stash your cash?
Just how many times have you looked at these lotto winners and thought, “Why couldn’t that be me?” The simple truth is, it can be. You just have to give yourself the opportunity to stand a chance of winning and there’s no other way than to buy a lotto ticket. We’re not saying that you have to spend your last dime on the lotto. Not at all. But if you have a few quid to play a line here and there, then do so.
Let’s take a look at lottery winners and their lucky lotto stories:
Lottery winners are immediately faced with figuring out how to spend more cash than they have ever been able to fathom having, and the way that some winners choose to spend their windfall is unusual, to say the least.
From legalising pot, celebrating with a shiny new trouser press, creating an all-girl wrestling show to a new pair of hips for your wife or hiding the winning ticket in the microwave, lottery winners have done it all.
Choosing those elusive numbers
It’s not all about winning the lotto due to your postcode as there is the small matter of picking the right numbers on a normal lottery. While some simply refuse to spend too much time thinking about which numbers to play and play a Quick Pick, many online lotto players prefer to choose the same numbers, all of which mean something very special to them, every draw.
Then there are those lottery players who swear that they have to play their lucky numbers, whether it’s a loved one’s birthday, a squad number of their favourite sportsman or in some cases a set of lotto numbers they dreamt of.
I have to agree, if I dreamt of winning the lotto and remembered each and every number, I would definitely go out of my way to play those numbers! This is exactly what happened to 58-year-old engineer Terry Vigus last year. He scooped a massive £1.1million on the Lotto after dreaming his numbers just a few weeks before!
He said: "I saw the balls drop and one by one they matched the numbers on my ticket.”
"In my dream I had matched five and was waiting for the sixth ball to fall when I suddenly woke up!"
It's written in the stars
Some lotto players think there is a formula to winning big on the lotto but others rely solely on lady luck herself or a sign from above.
We just have to look at best friends Carly Wiggett and Becky Witt. These ladies won £336,000 on the EuroMillions in 2013. How? Carly's mother read their horoscopes in the daily newspaper which suggested they were in for a huge windfall. The immediately bought a lotto ticket. While getting ready to go out, a friend of their texting them and told them that they had won big. They naturally thought their friends was just having them on but soon discovered that they had in fact won £118,000 apiece. I bet that was a good night out!
I guess now would be a good time to let you know that the August lottery horoscope is live. You never know what the stars are trying to tell you…
Is today your lucky day?
For those you don’t know your Leo from your Libra, and prefer getting your hands dirty building something rather, we have good news as the jobs with the most lotto luck show that the building trade have had the most lottery wins than that of any other vocation. For those into manufacturing, driving and administration you too are in with a good chance.
Where to hide your winning ticket
Can you believe it - one tiny piece of paper can be worth millions. It’s no wonder that those who have just found out that they won the lottery get seriously paranoid about where to keep the winning lotto ticket safe.
These tickets have been stored in some bizarre places. One winner actually hid the winning lotto ticket in the dog’s basket, while another under the snake tank.
Let’s face it. Lottery winners have their work cut out for them. It’s not for the faint hearted and keeping your cool is definitely hard. From stories of people splashing their millions without a second thought to purchasing a new pair of hips for your wife, buying a tarantula, these winners are at least all doing what makes them happy.
Don't forget, anyone can win with lotto, so, if you're a builder with a dog basket fit for a winning lotto ticket, then it might be in your best interest to buy a Lotto ticket this week!
