Online Lottery Ticket Wins Jackpot
Updated: Monday 20th July 2015
A National Lottery ticket purchased online was one of three that won the jackpot in the Lotto game on Saturday 14 August. The jackpot for that particular draw was worth £4,382,550, so the final value of the online lottery ticket was £1,460,850. Regular visitors to this site will know that the odds of winning a lottery jackpot (or any other prize) with an online lottery ticket are exactly the same as with one bought offline, but when an online player manages to beat the odds and actually land the top prize it is always encouraging, so we are delighted to pass on the good news about this latest win.
The lucky lottery winner who made his online lottery dream come true this time round was 64 year old Graham Pyatt from Mexborough in South Yorkshire. Graham can’t get out of the house as often as he would like due to health problems, so playing the lottery online is particularly useful, and he makes good use of it, playing one line each and every week.
Technically speaking, Graham became a millionaire just as soon as the sixth main number had been drawn from the lottery machine on the evening of Saturday 14 August, but he didn’t find out about it until a few days later.
“I always choose one lucky dip but didn’t check my account until Thursday,” he explained. “When it said I was a winner I couldn’t believe it and had to get my son to confirm that it was true!”
Graham is married to Jean and their son Steven is 30 years old. Graham has lived and worked in South Yorkshire his whole life, and after working hard for 28 years as a Laboratories Assistant for power stations in the area he is someone who really does deserve to enjoy a little luxury. Although his health issues limit his options as far as spending the lottery jackpot is concerned, Graham knows exactly what to do to put a smile on his face. “I want to use the money to make sure that Steven and his family are looked after which will make me very happy,” he said.
We are delighted that Graham has succeeded in becoming the latest online lottery winner, and for anyone who wants to follow his example, now is as good a time to have a go as any.
