    Millionaire scammer still owns posh house

    A RAPIST who scammed millions on the Lotto ten years ago still owns a posh four-bedroom house he allegedly bought with the tainted dosh.

    The home in commuter haven Kings Langley, Herts, just minutes from the M25 has fallen into serious disrepair.

    Docs show it is still owned by convicted rapist and fraudster Edward Putnam who is currently serving nine years for his despicable part in the biggest scam to ever hit the National Lottery.

    He was jailed for seven years in 1993 for raping a terrified pregnant 17-year-old girl.

    Putnam, now 56, “scooped” £2.5 million on the National Lottery in 2009 after conspiring with a Camelot employee to craft a fake ticket.

    How can someone be this lucky?

    In an interview with ABC News, Richard Lustig explained that his method was to re-invest all of his winnings back into the lottery, and also recommended using hand-picked sequential numbers, as well as using the same numbers repeatedly.

    Lustig’s total wins amount to a value of $1,052,205.58, which is about £766,736.95.

    Nightmare for young winners

    TO win a lottery jackpot is most people’s dream – but for those under the age of 25 who’ve scooped millions before they know how to handle money, it can often become a nightmare.

    As their lives dramatically change overnight, many have said that with great wealth comes a whole host of unimaginable problems too.

    As well as undergoing a radical physical transformation, Callie Rogers has been on a personal roller coaster since winning £1.8m aged 16 in 2003.

    She splashed the cash on parties, plastic surgery and drugs, and in 2018, she said she thought she was going to die following an assault by two women on a night out.

    Jane Park, from Edinburgh, won £1m in 2013 at the age of 17, after buying her first ever lottery ticket.

    The teenager quit her £8-an-hour admin job and splashed out on cars, holidays, clothes and plastic surgery.

    From ‘starving and terrified’ to having her own field to play in

    Dogs are often described as “man’s best friend” but it seems lucky rescue Lucy may appreciate that more than most. 

    She was found “starving and terrified” by Faye and Richard Davies after being “abandoned on the mountainside” in Brecon Beacons, Wales, back in 2018.

    Just weeks late the couple won £1million on the EuroMillions and they decided to spend some of it treating the poor pooch.

    After recognising Lucy was too scared to go out for walks, they paid £20,000 for a private field for her to play in.

    Faye told the Mirror: “She was terrified of people, of other dogs and water, so dog walks were a nightmare.

    “Then, weeks after our win, a half-acre field came up for sale just down the road [and] we bought it for Lucy.”

    So close and yet so far

    One unlucky teenager lost out on a £178m Euromillions jackpot – because each of her numbers was just one digit away from the winning seven balls.

    Tayla Octave, 19, could not believe it when she checked her lucky dip row against February’s mega draw and saw she had been so close to scooping the top prize – which you only have a one in 139,838,160 chance of winning.

    Marketing apprentice Tayla’s row was 5, 13, 24, 45, 49, with Lucky Stars 6 and 11 and the winning numbers were 4, 12, 25, 46, 48, 7 and 12.

    She told The Sun: “I’m just gutted. It’s a long shot to win the lottery anyway but to be so close is heart-breaking.

    “At first I just saw I hadn’t won anything but then I went through and compared them side by side and that’s when I realised that every single number I had was just one away from the winning ones.”

    The art of number picking

    Have you ever wondered the secrets to winning big in the lottery? Here are some of the top tips to maximise your chance of winning:

    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 up your numbers.
    4. Even it out – Don’t pick all odd or all even numbers.
    5. Split from the crowd, so don’t play patterns.
    6. Apparently, you should avoid anniversaries, birthday’s and dates.
    7. Avoid playing winning numbers that have been drawn before, because every combination has a chance of coming up once every half a million drawings.

    How to win the lottery

    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.

    Rags to riches…to rags again

    John Roberts, from Edinburgh, won a massive £3.1million back in 1998.

    But just three years later the security guard was penniless after blowing his money on cars, houses and luxury holidays.

    One of his first big buys was a massive Tudor mansion in Blackpool, which he moved his wife, Linda, and five children into.

    The five-bedroom detached home was worth around £160,000 when he bought it – and was a far cry from their council flat in Pilton, Edinburgh.

    The seaside house was called Balmoral, after the couple’s favourite Scottish beauty spot.

    In 2001, John moved out of the home and moved in with his cousin. At that time, it was worth £250,000

    John is now rumoured to be living on handouts from friends and family after his marriage fell apart, and was said to be living in a caravan at one time.

    People want improvements (continued)

    Half of those polled think the improvements would result in a happier atmosphere, and think that cafes and parks help the community. 

    Ros Kerslake, chief executive of The National Lottery Heritage Fund and chair of the National Lottery Forum, said: “The 27 years we have been funding has been transforming communities, turning dreams into reality and making life better for millions of people.

    “As we emerge from what has been a desperately challenging time, we want to inject hope and encourage communities to imagine what they could achieve with a helping hand.

    “With £30million raised for good causes each week, we have grants available from £3,000 to £5million. 

    “By coming together as communities, and as a nation, we can build, dream and create to change our future for the better and for generations to come.”

    People want to improve their communities, lottery suvery suggests

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

    The National Lottery discovered that almost half of Brits think that improvements are not made to their neighbourhoods regularly enough. 

    On average it takes 17 months to get any change implemented, with 41 per cent of people noticing the improvements – including more green spaces. 

    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.

    ‘I still shop in Primark despite winning £1.8m’

    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.

    Special win after ‘scary’ pandemic

    A syndicate of 53 NHS workers won £118,044 on EuroMillions earlier this month.

    They matched five numbers and one lucky star in the October 8 draw.

    The syndicate members are mostly pharmacy staff at Morriston Hospital in Swansea and aged between 20 and 63.

    They have been working flat out during the pandemic.

    Pharmacy technician Kim Owen, 61, said: “It’s been a scary time for all of us so the win is extra special.”

    Members of the syndicate, which is called the Pharmily Crew, will each receive £2,227. Most say they will spend their share on sunshine holidays.

    ‘We won, then gave our winnings away’

    A £115million jackpot is probably enough to not just change your life, but the lives of everyone you’ve ever cared about too.

    Which is probably why Frances and Patrick Connolly decided to give over half of their winnings to 175 people.

    “We won £114,969,775.70 and we have given away more than half,” Frances said last year.

    “That’s £60million-worth of love. And the thing that makes me even happier is that every single person we gave money to has passed some of it on to other people. I can’t think of a day since winning the Lottery that I haven’t smiled.”

    ‘I was made an example of after winning the Lottery’

    Former chip shop worker Leah Sumray won £1million in 2007 — but ended up behind bars less than a year later for failing to testify at someone else’s trial.

    She ignored a witness summons to give evidence in an assault case, instead jetting off on a £2,000 luxury holiday to Fuerteventura.

    Sumray, who was 21 at the time of her win, was jailed for 14 days for contempt of court.

    “I know I did something wrong and I’m sorry,” she told The Mirror in 2008.

    “But I feel I was made an example of because I was a Lotto winner.”

    The couple who won lottery twice after losing their son to Covid

    A couple won two lottery prizes in two weeks, just months after tragically losing their son to Covid.

    Susan Slater and her husband won more than £30,000 on the People’s Postcode Lottery twice in July of this year.

    They now want to use the cash to remember their son Steve, who died with coronavirus.

    Susan, 74, said she couldn’t believe it when she found out that she had won again: “When I got the phone call for this, I’d told quite a few people that I’d won £1,000 and I thought ‘this is a wind-up, someone is winding me up!’

    “Nowhere in my imagination did I think I was going to be lucky enough to win £30,000.”
