    How to play tonight's Thunderball

    Players must pick five main numbers from 1 to 39 and one Thunderball number which ranges from 1 to 14.

    Prizes may be won by matching the main numbers, but those who also match with the Thunderball will win a larger prize.

    If a player matches with the Thunderball only, they could win £3, but if they have match all five numbers and the Thunderball, they could scoop £500,000.

    Draws take place at 8.00pm four times a week – on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays – and are shown on the National Lottery website and YouTube.

      Holidays on their way for NHS workers syndicate

      A SYNDICATE of 53 NHS workers won £118,044 on EuroMillions earlier this month.

      They matched five numbers and one lucky star in the October 8 draw.

      The syndicate members are mostly pharmacy staff at Morriston Hospital in Swansea and aged between 20 and 63.

      They have been working flat out during the pandemic.

      Pharmacy technician Kim Owen, 61, said: “It’s been a scary time for all of us so the win is extra special.”

      Members of the syndicate, which is called the Pharmily Crew, will each receive £2,227. Most say they will spend their share on sunshine holidays.

      Explained: 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.

        Lotto blow out

        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's the cap?

        The maximum jackpot prize is capped at €200 million – before conversion – and can alter depending on which country the winner lives in and the value of their currency.

        In the UK, the winner’s prize would be capped around £181.5million.

        That’s an eye watering sum of money.

        Earlier this month, a French ticket holder bagged an estimated £184m.

        What's the secret?

        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.

        Keeping their lips sealed

        The man who looks after lottery winners says he has advised some people who have never told a single soul, and that he will “never know” himself how it feels to win big.

        Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, has seen “all sorts” of reactions in his 15 years dealing with lucky ticketholders.

        “I’ve seen people be sick with excitement, I’ve seen people resign their job on the spot, I’ve seen people jumping up and down, I’ve known husbands who haven’t told wives and wives who haven’t told husbands, I’ve been to homes where there’s literally a party going on already,” he told the PA news agency.

        Hairdresser to pig farmer

        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.

        Lottery fraud

        A RAPIST who scammed millions on the Lotto ten years ago still owns a posh four-bedroom house he allegedly bought with the tainted dosh.

        The home in commuter haven Kings Langley, Herts, just minutes from the M25 has fallen into serious disrepair.

        Docs show it is still owned by convicted rapist and fraudster Edward Putnam who is currently serving nine years for his despicable part in the biggest scam to ever hit the National Lottery.

        He was jailed for seven years in 1993 for raping a terrified pregnant 17-year-old girl.

        Putnam, now 56, “scooped” £2.5 million on the National Lottery in 2009 after conspiring with a Camelot employee to craft a fake ticket.

          ‘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!”

          Hopes become reality

          Like many people who play the lottery, Patrick and Frances Connolly “always hoped” they would win but didn’t have high hopes.

          But two years ago, on New Year’s Day, they scooped £114,969,775 on the EuroMillions after playing every week for years. 

          When the couple, from County Armagh, Northern Ireland, found out about the “life-changing” sum, they modestly celebrated with “a cup of tea and a hug”.

          They told ITV: “I always hoped we would win the lottery one day, but when we did, it would be just our luck that lots of others would win on the same day with the same numbers too.

          “Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would ever win almost £115 million.”

          Winning couple buy dog it’s OWN field

          Dogs are often described as “man’s best friend” but it seems lucky rescue Lucy may appreciate that more than most. 

          She was found “starving and terrified” by Faye and Richard Davies after being “abandoned on the mountainside” in Brecon Beacons, Wales, back in 2018.

          Just weeks late the couple won £1million on the EuroMillions and they decided to spend some of it treating the poor pooch.

          After recognising Lucy was too scared to go out for walks, they paid £20,000 for a private field for her to play in.

          Faye told the Mirror: “She was terrified of people, of other dogs and water, so dog walks were a nightmare.

          “Then, weeks after our win, a half-acre field came up for sale just down the road [and] we bought it for Lucy.”
