    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.”

    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.

    WHAT ARE THE BEST TIPS FOR WINNING THE LOTTERY?

    Obviously, there is no way to predict the winning numbers in the lottery. Each draw is completely random.

    But there are ways to increase your 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.

    WHO IS 1994 LOTTERY WINNER LEE RYAN AND WHERE IS HE NOW?

    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.

      ‘WE WON THE LOTTERY THEN GAVE WINNINGS AWAY BY MAKING PALS RICH & FLUSHING CASH DOWN THE LOO AFTER FIVE BOTTLES OF CHAMPAGNE’

      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.”

      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.

        BOLTON’S DEAF COMMUNITY SAYS THANK YOU

        Charity worker reveals how the National Lottery funding helped transform his life.

        Imagine growing up unable to understand the people around you, and having no way of communicating except through gestures.

        This was the world Philip Bridge faced as a child after being born with a genetic disorder called Waardenburg syndrome, which left him profoundly Deaf.

        “My family didn’t know sign language, so they’d be talking to each other and I couldn’t join in,” Philip says. “Mum did her best to talk to me, but it was hard for us to understand each other. I wanted to get involved but felt left out.

        “I ended up playing on my own a lot – I was frustrated, and really struggled. I went to a mainstream school where making friends for me was difficult, so I’d just play football with the kid next door.”

        Philip, now 42, was 16 when he started to learn British Sign Language, which is when he began to blossom.

        “I was learning sign language at Bolton College when a friend recommended that I join the Bolton Deaf Society (BDS),” he says. “It was quite a shock for me at first, as I hadn’t had much connection with the Deaf community before, but it was fantastic to suddenly make friends. We’d go out as a group to pubs and other Deaf clubs and feel safer together.”
