With Lotto fans eagerly snapping up tickets for tonight’s £7.2 million double rollover Lotto jackpot, builders across the UK will have an extra reason to play a few lines because the National Lottery has revealed theirs to be the luckiest profession of the lot. In the 21 years since Lotto began, there have been 331 builders who have become millionaires through playing lottery games.
In addition, 1,947 administration staff have filed away wins of more than £50,000 and a total of 1,592 drivers have taken a break from the wheel to collect major prizes. Postal staff have delivered 308 pieces of good news to their friends and families after banking considerable amounts, with 100 medical personnel enjoying a healthy bank balance of at least £1 million. The manufacturing sector has proved to be a millionaire factory, producing 176 lottery windfalls amounting to a mind-boggling total of £483 million. Other lucky roles include chefs, IT staff, mechanics, cleaners, retail workers and even farmers.
Take a look at the Biggest Lottery Win page to find out more about notable wins by UK lottery players.
Tonight’s Lotto jackpot has risen to a fantastic £7.2 million after rolling over since a single ticket holder pocketed £3.4 million on Saturday 30th May. Last month ended with a flourish, with great-grandfather Peter Congdon of Cornwall having claimed a mighty £13.5 million in the previous draw.
If you would like the chance to become the first Lotto winner of June, no matter what your occupation, you will need to buy Lotto tickets before sales close at 7:30pm today. They are available online through the Buy Tickets page, or in person at authorised retailers across the country, where you may find a cue of lottery players wearing hard hats and hi-viz vests purchasing their entries too.
