EuroMillions Results in a Million Dollar Windfall!

While her husband was paying full attention to a Euro 2020 match, Sammantha Young decided to purchase a couple of Lucky Dip EuroMillions tickets. The 33 year old woman from Basingstoke is celebrating her EuroMillions results, after taking home £1 Million in the 2nd July 2021 EuroMillions draw. She is one of 20 players who took home a special UK Millionaire Maker prize.

After supporting the England team in the match, Sammantha and her husband went to bed. She decided to check the EuroMillions results, but after seeing that there was no jackpot winner, thought little more of it. Incredibly, the following morning she saw a message from the National Lottery. 

The winner was excited, thinking she had won £1,000. In fact, it was actually 1,000 times that! Her husband pointed out the true prize.

“Neither of us were willing to dare believe that the win was real… Even when I called Camelot who confirmed the win, and then spoke with the winners’ advisor, I still couldn’t believe it. I mean, it’s a pretty big stretch to spend £2.50 and in return bank £1M

The lucky winner looks forward to celebrating with her husband and two children. Once it is safe to travel, she would love to go on some amazing getaways, like Bora Bora, and spoil the family with a few treats. Her football fanatic husband is eager to splurge on a Liverpool season ticket and a Range Rover Sport. Their son kept his request slightly more modest, asking only for a fidget spinner

Congratulations to the Young family!

Lotto HotPicks – Everything You Need To Know

Lotto HotPicks uses the numbers from the main Lotto draw but gives players a different way to win. But what exactly is Lotto HotPicks, how do you play and what are the odds? Fortunately, we’ve got all your questions answered!

 

What is the lottery HotPicks?

Lotto HotPicks is a separate game to the main Lotto draw. However, it uses the same numbers as the main game. Unlike Lotto, Lotto HotPicks allows players to choose how many numbers they would like to predict.

That is how the lottery HotPicks differs from Lotto. You must get all of the predicted numbers correct to win a prize. For example, you might choose to play a single number, which is then drawn. You would win the Pick 1 prize! However, if you predict two numbers but just one is drawn, you wouldn’t win a prize. The prize increases when your correctly predicted numbers increases.

 

How do you play Lotto HotPicks?

When playing the lottery HotPicks, you first have to decide how many numbers you would like to match – Pick 5, Pick 4, Pick 3, Pick 2, or Pick 1. Pick 5 has a larger prize, but you have a lower chance of winning.

If you decide to Pick 5, you have to get all 5 numbers correct. If you only get 4 numbers correct in the Lotto HotPicks results, you do not win any prize. 

You can select your own numbers or you can choose a Lucky Dip which will randomly select the numbers for you.

 

When does the draw take place?

The lottery HotPicks draw takes place with Lotto – every Wednesday at 8 pm GMT and Saturday at 8:30 pm GMT. The lottery HotPicks results are available on Lottery Results shortly after the draw. 

 

Do I have to enter Lotto to play Lotto HotPicks?

You can play Lotto HotPicks without having to enter Lotto, it is a standalone game.

If you do wish to enter Lotto as well as Lotto HotPicks, you do not have to use the same numbers.

 

What are the odds of winning? 

The odds of winning change depending on how many numbers you select. The odds of Lotto HotPicks are:

 

Game How to Win Prize Odds
Pick 5 Match 5 £350,000 1 in 834,398
Pick 4 Match 4 £13,000 1 in 30,342
Pick 3 Match 3 £800 1 in 1,626
Pick 2 Match 2 £60 1 in 115
Pick 1 Match 1 £6 1 in 10

 

The prize tiers are fixed and are the same for every draw. That means, that even if two people win Pick 5, they will receive  £350,000 each. Much better than having to share a jackpot prize!

 

How much does it cost?

Lotto HotPicks costs £1 per line.

 

Where can I buy a ticket?

You can purchase tickets online through the National Lottery website or through the National Lottery app. You can also purchase tickets in-store through authorised retailers.

 

When does the Lotto HotPicks draw close?

Ticket sales close at 7:30 pm GMT on the night of the draw. Online ticket sales close at 11:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.

 

Can I watch the draw?

You can watch the draw on the National Lottery website. Alternatively, you can watch the Latest Draws on YouTube at 7:45 pm every Wednesday and Saturday.

 

Where can I find the Lotto HotPicks results?

You can find the lottery HotPicks results right here at Lottery Results.

 

How do I claim a prize?

Claiming your prize will differ depending on if you purchased the ticket online or through a retailer. Before you rush to claim a prize, make sure you have the right Lotto HotPicks results on Lottery Results.

If you purchased your ticket online:

Prizes up to £500 will be automatically paid into your account after the draw; you will then be able to transfer the funds into your bank account. Prizes between £501 and £30,000 will need a confirmation that the funds should be transferred into your bank account. If you win over £30,001, you will need to contact the National Lottery Customer Care Team. 

If you purchased from a retailer:

You can claim prizes up to £100 from any authorised retailer. Prizes under £500 can be claimed from an authorised retailer, providing they have sufficient funds. 

Prizes between £501 and £50,000 can be claimed at a National Lottery affiliated Post Office. If you win over £50,001 you will need to contact the National Lottery directly.

All prizes are valid for 180 days once the draw takes place. Any unclaimed lottery winnings will be donated to the National Lottery Good Causes fund.

Lotto Draw Results Improve Winner’s Wellbeing

A Lotto winner and his wife are still coming to terms with their lotto draw results. Lottery officials caught up with the couple again and discovered how their life has changed since their £1 Million windfall.

Lotto draw results

David and Shelley Adams, from Chipping Norton, were overwhelmed upon learning their Lotto draw results were winners. Their lives had been changed forever following the August 1, 2020 Lotto draw.

Steps ahead

When lottery officials first spoke to the Adam’s family in August, they learned that Shelley had recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Her 2019 diagnosis came as a shock and forced her to retire from her beloved community carer job. Not only did this put a strain on their finances, it also affected her anxiety.

Shelley shared that she needed something to help her focus, crediting regular walking as an important part of her day. She aims to walk around her block at least twice a day, if her condition allows. While the couple have purchased two new cars with their winnings, they might not be using them quite as often! Shelley admits to trading in her old trainers for some new snazzy walking shoes, as well as a FitBit to track her walks.

Supporting a good cause

The winning couple are eager to participate in a fundraising event, the MS Walk Live. Fun runs and events such as this aren’t taking the same format this year, thanks to current coronavirus restrictions. However, that won’t stop everyone! Instead of groups of people undertaking MS Walks in various cities, the MS Society hosted a virtual walk on September 20, 2020 to raise funds for MS research.

Shelley and David are doing their part by raising awareness and funds through the MS Walk event. In the meantime, Shelley looks forward to keeping active and improving her daily wellbeing.

One syndicate member, Kevin, 50, said that it wasn’t until he noticed he had missed three calls from their syndicate leader, David.

“We have a group chat and my phone just started to ping. I called David back and he just said, ‘Kevin, I need you to check our ticket. I think we may have won and won big!’”

Kevin has been a bus driver for 16 years. He’s also a loving father of 3, with 4 grandchildren. He plans to use the winnings to treat his family. However, Kevin also looks forward to living more comfortably with less financial stress.

While all players are looking forward to spending their winnings, no one is looking at retiring just yet.

“We all love our jobs – some of us were even back in work the day we found out we had won.”

EuroMillions Results

The syndicate won big on the Friday 16 April 2021 EuroMillions draw. The EuroMillions results were:

Ball numbers: 6 – 11 – 29 – 40 – 48
Lucky Stars: 5 – 9

The jackpot for the draw was £49,320,956. However, the team won the £1 Million UK Millionaire Maker prize with the code HVWX68256. The 10 syndicate members will share the prize equally, meaning each player is now £100,000 richer!

EuroMillions winner shares her fortune with others

An Irish woman has shared her incredible tale of becoming a EuroMillions winner. Not only did the EuroMillions results change her life, but also enabled her to help so many others. The winner, Frances, and her husband, Patrick, have given away more than half of their £114.9 million EuroMillions payout! 

The EuroMillions winner laughed when recalling the moment they won. Her husband checked the results, and after sharing a moment to double-check the numbers, they celebrated with a cup of tea. 

Daily life has not changed too much for the lucky couple. A new home and a second-hand £2,000 Jaguar were their biggest treats. Rather, she has used the winnings to help others.

EuroMillions winner gives generously

Despite winning one of the larger EuroMillions prizes, Frances has dedicated her time and money to helping others. 

Once confirming the great news from her EuroMillions results, Frances drafted a list of 50 family members and friends that she wanted to help financially. True to her character, she generously gifted them money. One of her most prized possessions is the scrapbook of thank you cards from people she has helped. 

“I have more joy from changing lives than buying jewellery.”

After the win, the humble woman was eager to buy a bungalow. The generous winner went on to explain that despite being able to buy a lavish home – even looking at an estate with a whole village at one point – she preferred a comfortable home. The home that she settled on with her husband is a 5 bedroom home on 5 acres of land, and features a pool and tennis court to enjoy with her family.

This year, Frances has bought some extra Christmas presents for people spending the holiday in hospital and young carers living in poverty. The items include over 1000 toiletries sets, 30 computers, 20 laptops, and dozens of dongles to allow access to the internet. 

Speaking to lottery officials, Frances joked about her generosity.

“Patrick joked for years that if we ever won the Lottery, he’d take away my mobile phone and never let me use the computer again because I’d give away the lot. But I’ve taken real joy from helping other people out.”

You can find out more about Frances and her incredible charity work on the National Lottery’s blog

EuroMillions results

Frances won £114.9 million in a EuroMillions draw on 1st January 2019. She won the jackpot for draw 1177 by matching the winning numbers 1, 8, 11, 25, and 28, as well as the Lucky Stars which were 4 and 6. 

She shared that typically her numbers are a mix of birthdays, but the winning EuroMillions numbers were from a last-minute online Lucky Dip.

Builder’s merchant worker, Neil, plays occasionally on the National Lottery app. Despite being aware of having a ticket in the EuroMillions draw, he didn’t check the results until a couple of days later. He finally logged in and saw a message congratulating him on winning £1,000,000! The father of 3 couldn’t believe his eyes and asked his daughter to check it too. It was a sleepless night for the family before Neil could call the lottery provider at 9am to confirm.

Giving back

Neil and Sue plan to use the prize to buy a bigger family car. This will be an amazing purchase for the family, who frequently drive on long journeys to a Birmingham hospital. The Smart’s son, aged 9, was born with scoliosis and requires regular care and ongoing support.

Having experienced the difficulties that come with chronic illness and health conditions, the Smart family are overjoyed to be able to help a cause that helped them – the Ronald McDonald House charity. The RMHC provides a place for families to stay nearby hospitals when their child is in treatment, helping relieve some financial stress and providing support.
