BRITS are in with a chance of scooping a staggering £55million in tonight's HUGE EuroMillions draw.

The draw will take place at 8:45pm and the winning numbers will drop just minutes later. The National Lottery's Thunderball draw will take place shortly beforehand at 8pm, offering players a chance to win £500,000.

It comes after Monday's Set For Life Draw jackpot, which offered a lige changing £10,000 per month for 30 yeards, was not won by anyone.

Although the huge amount wasn't claimed, two Brit ticket holders matched 5 numbers – bagging themselves £10,000 every month for a year.

    The ‘Lotto Angel’ of Sheffield

    Barbara Wragg enjoyed giving her lottery winnings away so much that she worried the pleasure she got from donating was “selfish”.

    Along with husband Ray, former hospital worker Barbara won a whopping £7.6million in 2000.

    The generous couple from Sheffield went on to give away over £5.5million to friends, family, and good causes.

    Their beneficiaries included cancer charities and hospitals.

    But they also included smaller causes – the Wraggs paid for 250 inner-city kids to attend the pantomime for six years running.

    And they covered the travel costs of 60 veterans to attend a reunion of the Battle of Monte Cassino in Italy.

    Bad luck lotto winners

    Dave and Angie Dawes couldn’t believe their luck when they won £101million in 2011.

    And the generous couple decided to share their wealth by giving their friends £1million each.

    “We’ve drawn up a list of 15 to 20 people that we’re going to make millionaires,” former Premier Foods supervisor Dave told The Guardian at the time.

    “Anyone who has helped us through our lives.”

    But despite their generosity, Lady Luck soon turned on the couple. In 2017, the couple’s son, Michael, sued them for more cash after he blew through gifts of £1.6million in two years.

    The Navy veteran tried to argue that he was led to believe that he would be given cash from the couple on an ongoing basis. But a judge ultimately dismissed the case after hearing of Michael’s “astonishing” level of expenditure, which included a £1,000 weekly grocery bill.

    “Michael was provided with the funds to have a comfortable life, but for his own reasons he chose not to take that opportunity,” the judge added.

    Then in 2019, Dave and Angie were tied up and robbed by a gang in their luxurious mansion.

    Lotto cash ‘flushed down the loo’

    One lottery winner made a bit of a splash when she decided to part with her winnings by flushing them down the toilet.

    In 2014, Angela Maier reportedly flushed her €400,000 (around £303,500 at the time) winnings to stop the cash being used to pay for care home bills for her late husband.

    The German jackpot winner was said to have been stumped with a bill from the home that cared for her husband before he passed away shortly after her win.

    But instead of paying, she claims to have drunk five bottles of champagne and tore up all 800 of the €500 notes she won and flushed them down the toilet.

    A court heard it wasn’t technically illegal for her to have destroyed the money.

    But Maier ultimately agreed to pay €4,000 (£3,310) in compensation to settle the case, the Mirror reports.

    ‘We gave away £60m’

    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.

    When the couple’s numbers came up they decided to celebrate with a cup of tea in their modest rented home in Moira, County Down.

    They then set about giving away £60million of their winnings, starting with 50 friends and family.

    “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.”

    Winning couple celebrated with tea

    Frances and Patrick Connolly, from County Armagh in Northern Ireland, celebrated an (extremely) lucky dip win with a cup of tea, after first thinking it was a scam.

    Their exact prize pot was £114,969,755.70, shooting the couple towards the upper-half of lottery winners in the country.

    The generous pair – a retired teacher and businessman – said one of the first things they did was sit down and write a list of 50 people they want to share the money with.

    The pair proved the most generous of all winners when it was revealed last year they’d given away more than half of their cash to loved ones, charity and those in need during the pandemic.

    Whole lotto misery

    A LOTTERY winner was killed by her doctor husband who injected her with painkillers after he accused her of squandering the cash.

    Joseph Roncaioli, 72, was found guilty of the manslaughter of his wife Ibi who won $10 million she split with her friend.

    Prosecutors told his trial he may have been have been upset his wife squandered the couple’s fortune leaving them with little money for retirement, the Toronto Star reported.

    Passing sentence, the trial judge said his crime “more resembles a murder than an accidental killing”.

    “It was intentional, not spontaneous,” said Justice Jane Ferguson.

    Hungarian-born Ibi and her friend won $10 million on the lottery in Canada back in 1991 and the pair split the winnings.

    Her husband’s trial heard that she gave away $2 million on a son whose existence was a secret from her other two boys.

    How does the Lotto work?

    The National Lottery raises money to go to many ‘good causes’ and have helped give out numerous grants to those that need it most.

    On their website they state: “We retain around just 1% of revenue in profit, while around 95% of total revenue goes back to winners and society. More so, we run one of the most cost-efficient major lotteries in Europe, with around 4% of total revenue spent on operating costs.

    “To date, National Lottery players have helped to raise over £43 billion for Good Causes, with more than 635,000 individual awards made across the UK – the equivalent of more than 225 lottery grants in every UK postcode district.”

    If you win tonight you can follow your dreams like this winner

    A WOMAN who scooped £10,000 a month on the National Lottery Set For Life has quit her job to become a ghost hunter with her husband.

    Part-time paranormal investigator Laura Hoyle, 39, has decided to ditch her day job to pursue her spooky passion with Kirk Stevens, 37, after their big win.

    The 39-year-old is used to shocks – after realising she had landed the life-changing amount of money when she initially thought she had only won a fiver.

    Laura was able to immediately jack in her job at a logistics firm, after realising the cash could allow her to concentrate on her ghost-hunting hobby full-time.

    She said she could barely focus on her work when she learned of her good fortune.

      Mum begged for a winning ticket

      In 2016, the Davies family won £61million on the EuroMillions.

      Stephanie Davies, then 23, reluctantly bought a ticket after mum Sonia phoned from Florida and begged her to buy one.

      Sonia, who worked as an administration assistant, was in the US having vital keyhole surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from the parathyroid glands in her neck, and had a feeling she would go on a winning streak after the op was a success.

      But even this happy family couldn’t avoid controversy as it was reported father of the family Keith, of Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, would share his cash with his daughters with ex Mandy – but his wife’s son was allegedly snubbed.

      Keith’s partner Sonia’s estranged son Spencer Pugh claimed he would not see a penny of the £61million EuroMillions win.

      How likely am I to scoop the prize?

      Euro-millions.com says the odds of picking five numbers and the two Lucky Stars is 1 in 139,838, 160.

      Matching five numbers and one star has odds of 1 in 6,991,908.

      There is a 1 in 22 chance of matching two numbers in the draw.

      The approximate overall odds of winning a prize in EuroMillions are 1 in 13.

      According to the EuroMillions website, the chances of winning the UK Millionaire Maker game can be estimated as 1 in 1,900,000.

      But winning in this game depends entirely on the number of the payslips sold so the odds therefore fluctuate.

      Adrian & Gillian Bayford’s ill fortune

      Adrian and Gillian Bayford from Suffolk won £148.6 million, after exchange rates, on 10th August 2012 because they bought a Lucky Dip from a convenience store.

      When they realised they had won, they celebrated by taking their children out for pizza.

      Just 15 months after the jackpot win, Gillian, 47, divorced Adrian, 49.
      Adrian used part of the fortune to set up his own music business and open a shop featuring the world’s largest collection of Lady Gaga memorabilia.

      Adrian’s £6.5m mansion with 189 acres and pool is being sold because close friends report it has too many memories of pals betraying him.

      Age is more than just a number

      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.

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

      The new age restriction, which was exclusively revealed by The Sun, aims to make sure the lottery is not a “gateway to problem gambling”, minister for sport, tourism and heritage Nigel Huddleston previously said.

      ‘I’m glad I didn’t get the £3M’ says winner who lost ticket

      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.”

        Mo money mo problems

        Dave and Angela Dawes couldn’t believe their luck when they scooped a incredible £101,203,600.

        Treating themselves, the pair bought a £4 million home, Socknersh Manor, in Burwash, East Sussex – previously owned by the likes of Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck.

        However, they went through hell last year when they were tied up and robbed by a gang at their luxury home.

        The robbers fled with jewellery and around £20,000 cash in the couple’s Range Rover. They later beefed up security at their home to protect themselves.

        Crazy spending

        A LUXURY holiday, an expensive shopping spree, a flashy new motor – the possibilities are endless when you’re a new millionaire. 

        But such vast wealth is not something to be foolishly frittered away, as recently skint Michael ‘Lotto Lout’ Carroll will attest to after blowing £9.7m on drugs and sex parties.

        However, not everyone has such frivolous plans when it comes to spending their lottery money.

        Here we reveal some of the most unusual ways people have celebrated their newfound wealth.
