    INSIDE MARGARET LOUGHREY’S VINTAGE CAR SHOWROOM AT THE NEW HOME SHE NEVER LIVED IN

    The 56-year-old, who scooped a £27million (€31million) fortune, built a six-bay showroom for the vehicles even though she did not drive.

    She was found dead at the £130,000 bungalow where she had been staying temporarily in Strabane, Co Tyrone, on Thursday.

    The little house is next door to the showroom and the barrel-roofed converted barn where she planned to live alone.

    Police said there were “no suspicious circumstances” after Ms Loughrey’s body was discovered.

    EXPLAINED: WHAT IS SET FOR LIFE?

    The Set For Life draw runs on Mondays and Thursdays and one lucky Brit could win £10,000 every month for the next 30 years.

    THE UNLUCKIEST LOTTERY WINNERS OF ALL TIME WHO MISSED OUT ON MILLIONS BECAUSE OF LOST TICKETS AND PAYMENT PROBLEMS

    That was the case for one young couple this week who missed out on the £182million Euromillions jackpot  when they realised their winning ticket payment hadn’t gone through.

    Rachel Kennedy, 19, and Liam McCrohan, 21, from Hertfordshire were “absolutely heartbroken” when they realised their usual numbers had come up, but they had won nothing.

    The couple, both students, had played the winning numbers of 6, 12, 22, 29, 33, 6 and 11 for five weeks in a row before all seven digits appeared in Friday’s draw.

    Rachel’s account was set up to automatically buy a Euromillions ticket with her usual numbers but because her account did not have the right funds, the ticket payment did not go through.

    “I called the number thinking that I had won £182million and they said ‘yeah you’ve got the right numbers but you didn’t have the funds in your account for the payment of the ticket so it didn’t actually go through’,” Rachel said.

    LOTTERY CHANCES: SOME STAR SIGNS ARE LUCKIER THAN OTHERS

    Well, according to the stars some signs are luckier than others, so read on and see if you should pop out and buy that winning lotto ticket. It could be you!

    Leo – Oh, Leo we knew you’d be one of the lucky ones. You always look good, have a string of admirers and just tend to always be prowling on the bright side of the street.

    Virgo – It’s no coincidence that planner extraordinaire is one of the luckiest signs of the zodiac. Virgos only become successful because they put in the hours and werk, girl.

    Scorpio – Magnanimous Scorpio has definitely got it going on when it comes to luck. They’ll often find themselves in the right place at the right time as if by magic, much to the annoyance of some less fortunate souls

    FROM MANSION TO HOMELESS

    Ex-jailbird Lee Ryan scooped the £6.5million jackpot just 17 weeks after the lottery was launched on November 14 1994. He made headlines when it emerged he was accused of handling stolen cars and was imprisoned for 18 months after his huge payout.

    Lee then spent a decade living the high life and splashed his car on luxury cars, a helicopter and a £2million mansion.

    But Lee ended up penniless, spent two years living on the street and shacked up in a tiny flat in London he shared with homeless pals.

    “The money was cursed because I took the p**s out of God when I asked him to make me a multimillionaire. My cellmate warned me to be careful what I wished for,” he said.

    Lee ended up splitting with Karen Taylor, his girlfriend of eight years, and moved to London where he met a 25-year-old from Kyrgyzstan.

    They took an ill-fated trip to the Central Asian country where Lee attempted to invest the last of his winnings in property.

    But he returned empty-handed, claiming to have been stitched up by investors following the Kyrgyzstan revolution in 2010.

      EXPLAINED: HOW LONG DO WINNERS HAVE TO CLAIM THEIR PRIZE MONEY?

      Winners from different countries have different deadlines to claim their prize.

      In Austria, winners have a whole three years to claim the prize before it is returned to the lottery and used to fund boosted prizes.

      Belgian winners, on the other hand, only have around 140 days before the money is returned to the Belgian National Lottery.

      The least amount of time to snap up the jackpot goes to France and Luxembourg.

      Winners from Ireland, Portugal and Spain all have around 90 days to tell the world they’ve won.

      WHICH STAR SIGN MOST LIKELY TO PICK THE RIGHT WINNING NUMBERS?

      The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Which sign is most likely to win the lottery? 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.

        CALLIE ROGERS CAMPAIGNING TO RAISE LEGAL AGE LIMIT TO PLAY THE LOTTERY

        Callie is now campaigning for the government to raise the age limit for the National Lottery.

        Gambling is now more popular among children than skateboarding and campaigners believe an age limit of 16 entices young people into a habit of betting.

        Callie feels she was too young to cope with the pressure and wants to stop other kids going through the same problems she faced.

        She told the Mirror: “You are only a 16, with all that responsibility. At that age, you can get the best advice ever. But you are not in a position to listen. I was too young.

        “I suffer from such bad anxiety when I am going to meet new people. It preys on my mind, what a new partner’s family will think of me, or even new friends. I still get abuse just because of who I am.”

        EXPLAINED: HOW DOES THE NATIONAL LOTTERY 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.”

        EXPLAINED: WHAT NUMBERS DO MOST PEOPLE CHOOSE?

        A lot of people doing the EuroMillions pick a lucky dip to get their numbers.

        Lottoland advises that people should avoid popular numbers, like 1-31, as people tend to opt for their birth date.

        This means if these numbers come up more people will have them and the winning amount will be divided between more people.

        They also suggest avoidance of a sequence of numbers.

        WHAT IF

        Euromillions winner Adrian Bayford is “consumed with guilt” as his son fights for life after a horror quad bike smash, friends say.

        The lad, 13, was hit by a car driven by his sister, 15, in the sprawling grounds of their Cambridgeshire mansion.

        The Sun exclusively revealed details of the horror smash as the boy is fighting for his life in intensive care with his family at his bedside.

        His sister raised the alarm after her brother was flung from his machine and through a fence.

        It is understood the car and quad bike were gifts bought for the kids by former postie Adrian, 49.
