    Lucky fishes

    People born under the sign of Pisces are the most likely to win the lottery, according to research from Lott and MailOnline.

    The data, which was based on those winning the top lottery jackpot, found that 11.6% of the winners were Pisces.

    This means 1/12th of the population make up between 1/9 and 1/8 of all lottery winners.

    The fish sign – for those born between late February and late March – is more likely to 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…

    Man won £250,000 on Lottery scratchcard – then conned his own mum

    A MAN who won £250,000 on a lottery scratchcard later conned his OAP mum out of tens of thousands of pounds.

    Barry Perryman, 41, won the six-figure sum with his parents seven years ago.

    But within months he was abusing his role as his mother's carer to transfer money from her bank account, a court heard in June this year.

    Perryman, who arrived at court in a wheelchair with his leg in plaster, admitted a four-year long fraud when he appeared at Plymouth Crown Court.

    He was in a syndicate with dad Roy and mum Christine Perryman when they won £250,000 on a scratchcard bought from a Londis store in Keyham, Devon in September 2014.

    The defendant bought the winning ticket, matching four numbers on a Winning 7s card.

      Daughter’s nagging

      Lucky Kerri-Ann Robinson, from Stevenage, Hertfordshire, was studying for her college diploma in business when she won the jackpot. 

      The mature student, then 41, was taking care of her three-year-old daughter when she “begged me for a blackcurrant juice” in 2007.

      Kerri-Ann raced out to the shops at lunchtime and “as an afterthought, chose a Lucky Dip for the Lotto draw that night”.

      The next day during a break between classes, she checked the numbers and discovered she had won £2,543,691.

      In 2019, the mum-of-two told the Mirror: “When I realised I had won everything went blurry. 

      “I put my ticket in my pencil case, rang my mum and burst into tears. She thought something terrible had happened.”

      Kerri-Ann used some of the money to fund her “dream wedding” in 2010 and described walking down the aisle as “one of the most magic moments of my life”.

      Dad's pocket money

      A hospital visit to see her father led lucky Libby Elliot, from Aberdeenshire, Scotland, to win £2,169,664 on the lottery.

      Shortly before leaving, he gave his grandchildren pocket money and “two pounds pocket money” to his daughter too.

      In 2013, Libby, then 57, told the Daily Record: “On a whim, I put it on the Lucky Dip on my way home.”

      The next day, her dad couldn’t believe the news and was amazed that Libby was in hospital with him rather than planning ways to spend her cash. 

      She recalled him saying: “Look at you, you’re a multi-millionaire and yet you’re sitting here beside me.”

      Libby said that memory “still makes me cry” and since then her life has changed drastically.

      She went on to lose 11 stone and went “travelling the world on dream trips – from Jerusalem to Route 66 to Buenos Aires”.

      Lottery fairytales gone wrong

      Not all lottery winners have such modest tastes including Lotto lout Michael Carroll who bagged £9.7million in 2002.

      The former binman, who was branded the ‘King of Chavs’, blew his hefty fortune on “drugs, sex and gold”.

      Callie Rogers, who at 16 became Britain’s youngest lottery winner in 2003, spent thousands of her £1.9m jackpot on wild parties, three boob jobs, designer clothes and drugs.  

      And Lee Ryan, who scooped £6.5m in 1995, ended up penniless and spent two years living on the street after blowing his cash on luxury cars, a helicopter and a £2m home.

        A plumber screamed for joy after discovering he had won £300,000 on a scratchcard.

        Sean Irwin bought the £3 National Lottery Ruby Doubler Scratchcard during a quick run to the shops for him and his workmate.

        The 36-year-old was only halfway through scratching it when he realised he had matched two number 22s and revealed the prize symbol for £300,000.

        He could not believe his luck so he asked his boss Bill to double check the ticket.

        Incredible video then showed the screaming pair in Sean’s car calling Camelot, who confirmed the whopping win.
