Not all lottery winners buy tickets every week, in fact some people have never played the lottery. But as we always hear Ã¢â‚¬Ëœyou have to be in it to win itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, which is exactly what a lucky woman from New York did. After needing to break a note to get change for the bus ride home, the woman bought her first ever lottery ticket and won the $5 million jackpot.
It’s Friday night, which means only one thing in the world of lotteries, that it’s EuroMillions draw night and this week’s rollover jackpot stands at a staggering £71 million.

This Saturday there’s more than just Halloween to get excited about. It’s also a National Lottery double rollover week, the first since March. What does this mean to you, the lottery player?

Lottery scams have been around for a while now but still people are falling victim to these heartless crimes and more often than not elderly vulnerable people are being targeted.

A Canadian resident who has won four lottery jackpots worth over $2 million in five years has hit the jackpot again, only this time the lottery win is for $17 million, resulting in an investigation by The Western Canada Lottery Corporation. This isn’t the only question mark over the lottery jackpot win. The man’s brother-in-law has also claimed that the winning ticket was bought as part of a lottery syndicate which he was a part of.
