      'Being rich doesn't make you a better person'

      A National Lottery winning dinner lady still lives in her council house, shops in Primark and drives a Kia despite bagging £1.8million.

      Trish Emson, 51, explained money or her millionaire status did not change her or her partner Graham Norton, also 51, who still works as a decorator.

      The down-to-earth pair have even managed to keep their teenage son Benjamin, 17, in check – and don’t even give him pocket money.

      The modest mum, from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, said: “Being rich doesn’t make you posh or a better person.

      “I don’t like showing off and bragging about money and I can’t be posh anyway.

      “To look at me you wouldn’t think I was a millionaire, but if I have to dress up I feel fake, I prefer my jeans,” she told The Mirror.

      A survey has revealed that wellness centres, libraries and bee houses are also one of the highest priorities for improving local areas.

      The study of 2,000 people revealed that 16 per cent want more social schemes and venues and 18 per cent want a “friendlier” neighbourhood.

      Into the golden pond

      Well, it’s good news if you’re born in February or March.

      According to research from Lott and MailOnline, dreamy Pisces is the luckiest sign of the zodiac when it comes to winning the lottery.

      The data, which was based on those winning the top lottery jackpot, found that 11.6% of the winners were Pisces – meaning, on average, they were more likely to pick the golden ticket.

      Go-with the-flow Pisces will stumble upon extraordinarily lucky breaks and often find themselves effortlessly attracting most things on their wish list.

      So, Pisces, if you’re reading this maybe you should get down to the shops and buy a lottery ticket.

      Your guide to playing the odds

      Firstly, select the right game. The lottery could mean one of several games – each with different odds and jackpots.

      Playing a game with smaller odds gives you a better chance of winning.

      Secondly, buy more tickets. This sounds obvious, but there are several ways to do this.

      Aside from simply splashing out more yourself, one way of increasing your odds of winning is to join a syndicate or pool.

      This could be made up of friends, family, colleagues or even strangers – it doesn’t matter.

      A syndicate or pool is a group of people who purchase a set number of tickets and agree to share any prizes out equally, whoever wins.

      Tips and tricks for a golden ticket

      1. Avoid computer picks. It lowers your odds of winning.
      2. On scratchcards try buying 10 of one ticket instead of several different tickets.
      3. Mix it up – Never play all one-number groups.
      4. Don’t pick all odd or all even numbers.
      5. Don’t play patterns.
      6. Avoid anniversaries, birthday’s and dates.
      7. Don’t Copycat – Avoid playing winning numbers that have been drawn before, because every combination has a chance of coming up once every half a million drawings.

      Thank your lucky stars

      Astrologers have suggested that there are specific numbers that could be worth playing if you want to win the lottery.

      They are 1, 4, 2, and 7.

      Also, those numbers that add up to these like 10, 11, and 22 can be your lucky numbers in 2021.

      Scratching for gold

      Striking it rich with a scratchcard might seem like a fantasy – with most punters pocketing a couple of quid, if anything.

      But some actually put you in pretty good stead of bagging the top prize.

      What happens if this money goes unclaimed?

      Any cash that isn't claimed after a total of 180 days from a game played in the UK goes to National Lottery projects across the country.

      Once the claim period is over, the ticket officially expires and the owner of the lottery ticket will no longer be able to claim any of their winnings.

      Unclaimed prizes, plus any interest they might have accumulated in that time, are allocated to the National Lottery’s Good Causes fund instead.

      Down to the wire

      Back in 2019, a player in Manchester claimed their £1m prize just hours before the limit.

      Others, however, haven't been so lucky.

      In June 2012, a EuroMillions prize worth an unbelievable £63.8m went unclaimed.

      Riches await (continued)

      "We’re hoping that they will now come forward and claim their amazing prize."

      There's still hope the unwitting London millionaire could come forward, despite the tight deadline.

    • caroline.mortimer@thesun.co.uk

      Riches await…

      No one has yet come forward after a £4.1m Lotto win earlier this month.

      The ticket-holder scooped a £4,101,869 jackpot by matching all six main numbers.

      Camelot’s Andy Carter of The National Lottery said the Lotto prize will change the winner’s life.

      “We’re asking Lotto players to check their tickets as this could be a life-changing win for the lucky ticket-holder,” he said.

      Move it or lose it

      A lottery-winning Brit has less than a week left to claim their huge prize – or let £1million slip through their fingers for good.

      The lucky ticket-holder paid out for their winning slip back in the summer.

      But they've still not stepped forward to claim the cash.

      And next Sunday, November 28, they'll miss their chance forever – as the life-changing sum is donated to National Lottery projects in the UK.

      Bosses at Camelot are now urging anyone who bought a ticket in Greenwich, London for the June 1 draw to search under sofas and in their pockets.

      The winner made their fortune as part of EuroMillions' UK Millionaire Maker.

      The winning code is ZMFD00211.
