    Tips to get lucky numbers

    Avoid repeats– Another top tip is to ensure you are always choosing numbers that weren’t drawn last week.

    While it might seem 3 is a lucky number, just because it appeared in the previous draw, it doesn’t mean it will again next time.

    Odds and evens– According to expert analysis, all-odd and all-even line-ups are drawn less than three per cent of the time.

    As there are seven gaps to fill, this means it is best to pick three odd and two even, or two odd and three even.

    One of these patterns will occur in 68 per cent of EuroMillions draws.

    Shun same last digits– Similarly to odds and evens, it’s good to mix things up when it comes to the second digit of your numbers.

    Even if seven might be your lucky number, think twice about choosing 7, 17, 27, 37 and 47.

    Almost 90 per cent of draws have no more than one repeated last digit.

    And your chances of winning with four same final digits drop to less than two tenths of one per cent.

    Are Euromillions lottery winnings taxed?

    Your winnings should not be taxed but when they are considered as income or you start making income through interest, then these might be taxed.

    TheEuroMillionswebsite says: “While there is no tax on the initial sum paid into your account, it may be that the win starts to produce an income through interest.

    “This will then be taxed as part of your normal income tax.”

    When the Davies family took home £61million

    In 2016 theDavies family won £61millionon the EuroMillions.

    Stephanie Davies, then 23, reluctantly bought a ticket on Friday night after mum Sonia phoned from Florida and begged her to buy one.

    Then 53-year-old Sonia was in the US having vital keyhole surgery to remove a cancerous tumour, and had a feeling she would go on a winning streak after the op was a success.

    Sonia, who worked as an administration assistant, hadcancerin the parathyroid glands in her neck.

    The Welsh family said they were the “luckiest people on the planet” after scooping an enormous amount of cash.

    This happy family couldn’t avoid controversy as it was reported father of the family Keith, 55, of Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, would share his cash with twins Holly and Abby, 23, and Natasha, 24 — his daughters with ex Mandy.

    But it was reported that Keith’s partner Sonia’s estranged son Spencer Pugh would not see a penny of the£61million EuroMillions win.

    Three ways to improve your chances for EuroMillions

    1. Don’t favour special dates

    It’s pretty common to opt for birthdays and anniversaries when choosing Lotto numbers.

    If you’re relying on special dates, you’re never going to pick a number higher than 31 so you’re ruling out 19 possibilities.

    Don’t be afraid to explore your options between 32 and 50.

    2. Bunch your choices

    To stand a better chance of scoring a win, go for numbers closer together.

    For example, instead of choosing 3, 7, 14, 19, and 26, you could give 9, 10, 12, 13, and 14 a go.

    3. Keep things balanced

    As well as keeping your digits closer together, experts suggest keeping them well-balanced.

    They recommend adding them up once you’ve made your choices to ensure the total is between 90 and 160.

    This is because numbers between these two account for almost three quarters of the five-number successful EuroMillions sets.

    Do winners have to reveal their identity?

    Lottery winners can keep their anonymity in the UK.

    There is also a common myth or misconception that remaining anonymous affects the amount of money you win.

    However, this is absolutely false and your decision about whether or not to go public has no bearing on your jackpot.
