Online Lotto Winner

An online Lotto player from Heckmondwike in West Yorkshire is celebrating after matching five main numbers and the bonus ball on Saturday 14 March, 2009. 49 year old Steve Wright, who works as an electronics technician, won £104,577.
Steve, who is married to Dawn, has been playing the National Lottery online for about eight years, and the week before his six figure win he managed to pick up a £10 win by matching three numbers. Like all online lottery winners, Steve automatically received an email informing him of his win. The couple now plan to take a holiday in Turkey and buy a new car – probably a convertible.
“I checked my e-mails at midnight on Sunday and couldn’t believe my luck, so I called Dawn and my son Dalton to the computer to check I wasn’t seeing things,” Steve explained. “There wasn’t time to celebrate so I tried to sleep, but my mind was racing about buying a new Ford Focus Cabriolet and paying for our holiday. I just hoped that I would wake up on Monday morning and it would still be real.”
Steve’s six-figure win came from a Lucky Dip ticket, and so did his £10 win just a week earlier. “It just goes to show that your luck doesn’t run out after one win,” Steve said. “We’ll definitely be playing our regular numbers and a lucky dip again this week – you just never know, we might go one better.”
Playing the lottery online isn’t complicated. All you have to do is visit our Buy Lotto Tickets page, choose the lottery game that you want to play and then follow the instructions provided. You can’t lose any ticket that you buy online and, like Steve, you will be notified by email if the lottery results make you a winner.
