Lottery Power and Lottery Fever

Across the world people are playing the lottery every week, some twice a week as every Tuesday and Friday night is Mega Millions night – this is when the live draw takes place.  The jackpot is guaranteed a prize amount that includes annuity interest.  Sometimes it is a “roll-over”.   As the jackpot grows, so does Mega Millions fever!

On April 1st Mega Millions produced yet another winner with a Match 5 winning ticket, sold in Ohio, and worth $2 million - Ohio’s second Megaplied Match 5 winner in the past month.
The Mega Millions jackpot has been rolling over since March 8 when it was last won in Seattle, Washington wherein the winner received a whopping $157 million.  Surprisingly enough this winner purchased only one $5 Mega Millions ticket choosing the one-time cash payment option of $102.8 million after tax.

You do your bit too by playing the Lottery.  Since 1982, Washington’s Lottery has generated more than $3 billion to support state programs like the Washington Opportunity Pathways Account which helps students achieve their higher education dreams and also supports early childhood education learning programs. This State’s Lottery offers several types of games like Mega Millions, Powerball, Lotto and many more.   


No matter what – Play Responsibly! - is the message from the Lottery Groups.


Apart from the Mega Millions, EuroMillions a lottery that is played across nine European countries produces a fair amount of its own millionaires. Similarly draws take place on Tuesday and Friday evenings with a minimum guaranteed jackpot of €15 million, which can roll over to an impressive €190 million.  

When a EuroMillions player is lucky enough to win the jackpot or a very large amount, a tough decision is to be made, whether to go public or remain anonymous. While many winners decide to claim their prizes quietly, there are those who decide to reveal their identities and speak publicly about their wins.   

This goes for the UK National Lottery as well.  According to a 2014 interview in The Telegraph with Winners Advisor Andy Carter, who works for the UK National Lottery, just 15 percent of UK lottery winners choose to go public with their prize.  Regardless of whether they tick the "no publicity" box or choose the press conference and champagne reception, all UK lottery winners are promised support, including financial and legal advice, from the National Lottery.


Crossing over to Africa where a Pretoria resident won the R21.4 million PowerBall Jackpot on April 13th 2016.

 “Lady luck” struck a Pretoria lottery player – now a whopping R21.4 million richer after winning the PowerBall jackpot on Tuesday evening with the winning ticket, this year’s third biggest win, bought in Rosslyn, north of  Pretoria.  This ticket holder the only winner of the PowerBall jackpot. 

The biggest PowerBall jackpot winner this year was a player also from Gauteng who received R42 million.  PowerBall, which recently surpassed Lotto as the most popular lottery game, has already had 14 Jackpot winners since Ithuba took over the national lottery 10 months ago. PowerBall Plus has already recorded three millionaire jackpot winners. Ithuba has already produced 50 millionaire jackpot winners across all of the lottery games since taking over. 

Lotto has recorded 30 millionaires, Powerball 14, Lotto Plus four and PowerBall Plus three.  An impressive record for a ‘’young’’ company, don’t you think.

From Humble Beginnings - more about the Lottery in Brazil

As in most countries the Brazilian Lottery had a very interesting start; back in the late 1700’s a fund raising exercise to raise enough money to build new prisons and out buildings is said to be the first games of luck.





Fund raising for new prisons

Later on the Baron de Drummond Zoo sold daily raffle tickets to increase their revenue and attract more visitors.

Due to the success of these raffle tickets, similar unregistered local lotteries became commonplace countrywide. Often with very low jackpots and they were said to be run by criminals, thus leading to a lottery ban in 1896.

It wasn’t until 1947 that the Rio Grande do Sul state lottery was introduced. In 1961 a local bank was put in charge of all lottery activities and games of chance. In turn all private lotteries were prohibited.

Finally in 1967 the first National Lottery was created and in 2011 a record amount of 10 Billion Real ($3 Billion US) was raised by lotteries country wide.

Initially the Brazilian Lotteries were only open to residents but they now allow for online entries too.



The laws governing the Brazil Lotteries are pretty much the same as most lotteries;

- Minimum age is 18, even for scratch cards.
- Brazilian Citizens are exempt from paying tax on any amount of winnings.
- Foreigners are taxed up to 30% of the jackpot in the form if income tax.
- A valid bank account is needed to claim winnings, locally or abroad.
- Prizes need to be claimed within 3 months of the draw.



The following lotteries can be played in Brazil:
- Dupla Sena – draws: Tuesday / Friday
- Federal – draws: Wednesday / Saturday
- Lotofacil – draws: Monday / Wednesday / Friday
- Lotomania – draws: Wednesday/ Saturday
- Mega-Sena – draws: Wednesday / Saturday
- Quina – draws: Monday/ Tuesday/ Wednesday/ Thursday / Friday / Saturday


The largest Jackpot in Brazil Lotteries was in 2014 where the total payout was 263 Million Real (around $86 million US).

It’s all in the stars… or is it?


Do you put much faith in what the horoscopes predict in the daily print media? 

Rachel Bryan didn’t think much of the first one she saw. However when she spotted a second horoscope prediction for a big win, she decided to go with it and purchase a UK National Lottery ticket £1 Lucky Dip.

When the jackpot was drawn and 5, 6, 8, 19, 34 and 38, her numbers, came up she was thanking her lucky stars as the winner of £2,5 Million.

A truly life-changing experience by any account! Rachel was 34 at the time, a trainee solicitor who was about to qualify, her husband Tony was working as food technician and their 7 year old daughter Kelly’s lives would never be the same again.


Rachel was quoted saying “Some people know straight away what they want to do or they jet straight off on holiday but we didn’t know what to do. Being millionaires takes some getting used to. One minute you’re planning for this kind of life then suddenly the goalposts have changed.”

Now where most people would spend their winnings on fancy homes, luxury cars, designer clothing or exotic holidays, the Bryan’s however decided to fulfill their dream of being self-sufficient.

They purchased a small-holding, a former garden nursery in the idyllic village of Rolleston, Nottinghamshire, consisting of a six acre property with a house and an industrial-sized greenhouse.

Rachel and her family are growing their own food and raising their own animals including two goats and 200 chickens. This usually has them up early in the morning tending to the animals and working with their crops such as peppers, chillies, onions, potatoes, melons amongst other things.

They make a small income from letting land to caravans and campers during the summer season and selling eggs and chicks.

For most people it’s about what you buy and the material gains that make winning the lottery worthwhile. For the Bryans, it has been a lifestyle choice that made them real winners.

It all comes out in the wash! Granny “lotto” winner up for fraud?

UK National Lottery



Susanne Hinte, who moved to the UK from her native Germany at the age of 19, now 48 years old and a grandmother may face fraud charges.

David and Carol Martin
The record breaking UK Lottery Jackpot of £66 Million was won by two lottery tickets bearing the lucky numbers: 26, 27, 46, 47, 52 and 58.

The first ticket holders David and Carol Martin came forward after 24 hours to claim their half of the winnings.

12 Days later local media were urging the public to check their lottery numbers so as to locate the second winning ticket.

Susanne along with a few hundred others had claimed to be the second winning lottery ticket holder after Camelot had announced that the winning ticket was purchased in the Worcester area.  

With the claimants’ all saying that their tickets were lost, stolen or damaged in some way or another, these claims had to be sent to Camelot for official verification, a process by which claimants must wait 180 days before the validity of their claim on the ticket is announced.

As a part of the procedure Susanne sent her ticket to Camelot, the problem with her ticket was that it had gone through the wash, in the pocket of her jeans, resulting in the remnants of this ticket showing the winning numbers but not the essential barcode and date of the draw.

Alleged winning ticket

Her “winning” lottery ticket was purchased at Ambleside News her local store in the city. Shopkeeper Hansa Patel, whose husband Natu initially believed he had sold the winning ticket to Susanne, and had offered to send the CCTV footage to Camelot for their publicity. However as they did not get back to him he realised that the ticket may not have been verified as the second winning ticket.

Hansa Patel - Ambleside News

Subsequently a verified winning lottery ticket has been brought to light, the winner(s) of which would like to remain anonymous.

Could this be Camelot claiming a winner in order to end the drama or is there actually a genuine winner?

Susanne Hinte - Alleged Fraudster or Unlucky Winner?
Susanne has not been seen out in public since the "real winner" has come forward and a neighbour was quoted as saying that Susanne would be “beyond gutted” to have missed out on the lottery winnings.










Could this be a simple mistake or is there more to it?

Susanne is currently awaiting trial on two charges of theft regarding and incident of a stolen handbag during a “distraction” crime in Birmingham some time back.

Lottery bosses warned that they would take action against people who try to claim jackpots fraudulently as fake claimants can be charged with the criminal offence of fraud by false representation, an offence with a maximum  ten-year jail sentence.

Watch what you say!! You could loose your lottery winnings!

The old saying “Watch what you say” is a lesson that should not be overlooked! Often what you say can get you into more trouble than you can possibly imagine, even if you say something in jest.

Such is the case for this Million Dollar lottery winner, Eva Reyes, a 53 year old lady from California.

The owner, Laxmi Bhardwaj, of the liquor store from where she purchased the California Lottery ticket claimed that Ms. Reyes had promised to share the winnings with him in an even split. 

Upon winning the Jackpot she agreed to pay over an amount of $50 000.00 as a show of good faith, however the store owner wanted the full $350 000.00 which would be exactly half the winnings after taxes; as he is said to have fronted the money for the winning lottery ticket in the first place.

The store owner sued Ms. Reyes for the outstanding $300 000.00 and the disputed amount has been frozen in a separate account until the lawsuit is settled. 

Ms. Reyes’ lawyer says that the split of the winnings that his client was to gift the store owner, was just that, a gift. And as a gift his client is entitled to change her mind as to the amount she wishes to gift.

Whichever way the verdict goes; with court fees, legal fees and taxation Ms. Reyes may not see much of her portion of the winnings after all. However I am sure that Ms. Eva Reyes has learned her lesson; unfortunately it was the hard way!
