    But now Laura and partner Kirk Stevens, 37, said their lives had been changed by the mind-blowing win.

    She added:"I was working from home that afternoon and stopped immediately to call Camelot. I was physically shaking as I told the lady, 'I think I've won the lottery!"

    What numbers do most people choose?

    A lot of people doing the EuroMillions pick a lucky dip to get their numbers.

    Lottoland advises that people should avoid popular numbers, like 1-31, as people tend to opt for their birth date.

    This means if these numbers come up more people will have them and the winning amount will be divided between more people.

    They also suggest avoidance of a sequence of numbers.

    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.

    Well, according to the stars some signs are luckier than others, so read on and see if you should pop out and buy that winning lotto ticket. It could be you!

    Leo – Oh, Leo we knew you’d be one of the lucky ones. You always look good, have a string of admirers and just tend to always be prowling on the bright side of the street.

      'I'm glad i didn't get the £3m'

      Martyn and Kay Tott got the shock of their lives when they realised they’d won £3million back in 2001 – six months after buying the ticket.

      By the time they saw an appeal for the winner to come forward, they couldn’t find the ticket.

      After 45 agonising days of deliberating, Camelot told the devastated couple that they weren’t going to receive the cash.

      “Having that money taken away was torture,” Martyn told the Mail on Sunday.

      “For a long time I lost sight of who I was and what I believed in. But I can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t get the £3million now.

      “There is no guarantee it would have brought me happiness.”

      The unluckiest players of all time?

      A young couple missed out on the £182million Euromillions jackpot  when they realised their winning ticket payment hadn’t gone through.

      Rachel Kennedy, 19, and Liam McCrohan, 21, from Hertfordshire were “absolutely heartbroken” when they realised their usual numbers had come up, but they had won nothing.

      The couple, both students, had played the winning numbers of 6, 12, 22, 29, 33, 6 and 11 for five weeks in a row before all seven digits appeared in the draw.

      Rachel’s account was set up to automatically buy a Euromillions ticket with her usual numbers but because her account did not have the right funds, the ticket payment did not go through.

      “I called the number thinking that I had won £182million and they said ‘yeah you’ve got the right numbers but you didn’t have the funds in your account for the payment of the ticket so it didn’t actually go through’,” Rachel said.

      We won the lottery – and then made our friends rich

      A £115million jackpot is probably enough to not just change your life, but the lives of everyone you’ve ever cared about too.

      Which is probably why Frances and Patrick Connolly decided to give over half of their winnings to 175 people.

      “We won £114,969,775.70 and we have given away more than half,” Frances said last year.

      “That’s £60million-worth of love. And the thing that makes me even happier is that every single person we gave money to has passed some of it on to other people. I can’t think of a day since winning the Lottery that I haven’t smiled.”

        Gran who stole £33,000 of scratch cards from corner shop spared jail

        A GRAN stole £33,000 worth of Lotto scratchcards from a corner shop while working behind the till, a court heard today.

        Trusted shop assistant Sheila Hancock, 60, took thousands of cards from the display without paying for them.

        And if she saw it was a winning card after scratching off the silver foil she took the prize money out of the till, it was said.

        Puzzled owner Virajkumar Patel couldn’t understand why his busy store wasn’t making a profit despite staying open throughout the pandemic.

        So he checked CCTV and was horrified when he saw Hancock repeatedly helping herself to cards and winnings. York crown court heard she had become addicted to the “easy” gambling and got away with the deceit from January 2020 until April of this year.

          ‘Lottery curse’

          Colin and Chris Weir won £161million on the EuroMillions in 2011 – making them the 22nd richest people in Scotland and propelling them onto the Sunday Times Rich List.

          They splashed out on a stunning mansion and their humble first buys included a checked sports jacket, a computer and a tractor.

          The Scottish couple initially bought Knock House near Largs, but they sold their mansion in favour of an even bigger pad in Troon. They donated much of their money and set up The Weir Charitable Trust in 2013.

          Sadly, in April 2019, the pair announced they were divorcing. They had been married for 38 years before being hit by the lottery curse, and shared two grown-up children, Carly and Jamie.

          Just three months later, Colin tragically died of kidney failure and sepsis aged 72.
