UK Lottery Draw: Rumoured Changes To The Lotto

It has been reported recently that the administrators of the British National Lottery, Camelot, are considering some exciting changes to the Lotto draw.

Last year the European lottery brought in the Millionaire Raffle. This gives each United Kingdom player of the lottery a unique number and each number is entered into a raffle entirely separate from the lottery itself. Twice a week, alongside the lottery drawing, one number is selected to win £1 million.

The Lotto draw in the British National Lottery is now looking into the idea of a similar scheme. It seems likely there will be a raffle much like the successful Euromillions version but with 20 prizes of £100,000 awarded with each draw.

In addition to this, it is rumoured the Lotto jackpots might increase by £1 million and other prizes may be available or increased. At the same time, the chances of winning a prize in the Lotto can only increase.

On the downside, the price of each ticket may increase to as much as £2 – in line with the Euromillions lottery.

It has to be stressed that these ideas may well change before they are implemented as they seem only to be proposals at the moment but nonetheless it can only increase the excitement generated by the British National Lottery.

Global Lotteries: More Lottery Scams Appear

We all want to find the best lotteries to play and identify the global lotteries that will make our dreams come true.

Sadly too many people are still the victim of lottery scams that prey on our wish to win it big.

The Brooklyn Eagle newspaper recently warned residents in their area of the United States that a new lottery scam was operating in the vicinity. New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli reports that cheques are being received by potential victims together with a covering letter.

This letter is from a company calling itself either Guaranty Trust Inc., New York or Golden Gateway Financial, Division of Unclaimed Funds from Las Vegas or London.

The cheque is fake and the signature forged. The letter tells the recipients they have won a prize in the ‘American Lottery Sweepstakes Millions’ and that they should send money to claim the full prize.

Of course the money disappears and no prize is forthcoming.

At the same time, Bayshore Broadcasting in Canada reports a lady received an email telling her she had won a $5.5 million lottery in Australia.

Regrettably she replied to the email. A person pretending to be a doctor then persuaded her to send a $2500 ‘administration fee.’ Once she had sent that, the victim was then asked to send another $2850 as a ‘currency conversion fee.’

Needless to say, the lady has seen no winnings or even her money back.

If you receive any notice that you have won a lottery you did not pay to enter then ignore it. Never, ever, respond to any such communication. You will either lose money or personal information.

As Thomas DiNapoli explains, “An offer of easy money is usually too good to be true.”

One way to avoid the scams is to play lotteries online or visit your local shop to play one of the global lotteries.

European Lottery: Life Changes For a Young Couple

 
 

Aston Martin Stand At The Los Angeles Motor Show

 
The Eurolottery draw has changed the lives of a delightful young couple from Stapleford in Nottingham.

Cassey Carrington, a supervisor at Iceland, and Matt Topham, a painter and decorator in his father’s business, are both aged 22 and won the European lottery jackpot by playing online.

Cassey felt her luck was in when her store won a sales incentive of £10,000, which the staff divided among themselves. As a result she decided to see if her luck would extend to the lottery.

She bought a ticket for the European lottery draw on Friday 3 February 2012 but won nothing. There was still a balance on her online account so she used that to buy tickets for both the British National Lottery the next Saturday and the Eurolottery draw on Tuesday.

The Tuesday Eurolottery ticket scooped her a stunning £45,160,170.50.

Cassey has only played the lottery a few times and has already won two prizes of £10. The European lottery jackpot win has come at the right time for the couple however.

That Tuesday both Matt’s computer and their washing machine broke down. They were already budgeting for their forthcoming wedding and were frustrated by their bad luck. Cassey then decided to check the lottery numbers.

She ran though the European lottery numbers and could not believe what she saw so she rang a friend so he could check too. They all got very excited but refused to celebrate before they spoke to the lottery administrators the next day. Like so many lottery winners, Cassey and Matt got little sleep that night.

The couple have great plans for the money. The first priority is to treat family and friends. Cassey’s father has always wanted a Porsche and so the couple plans to treat him to one as well as pay off her parents’ mortgage. Having struggled with a mortgage themselves, Matt and Cassey will help friends get a house and Matt’s father will be able to retire.

The couple will treat themselves too. Cassey says, “There are just so many hobbies that I never thought I would ever be able to do so to go from having nothing as a hobby to being able to do anything is just crazy.” They plan to design and build their own dream house and have watched Top Gear to identify the cars they want; Cassey has put an Aston Martin at the top of her list. Travel is a burn for the two as well and several destinations have been discussed, including visiting Monaco for the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

And their wedding day will be a lot more lavish, thanks to the European lottery.
