FACT 1: YOU CAN WIN MORE THAN ONCE

A common myth players hold is that you can't win the lottery more than once. This is simply just not true. During the first draws of the UK Lottery, a man from Kent was lucky enough to win a prize every week for 26 consecutive draws!

FACT 2: MOST LOTTERY PLAYERS DON'T HAVE PLASTIC SURGERY

It's common to talk amongst friends about what you would do if you won the lottery or even remark on some of your less liked features and say "if I won the lottery I'd get plastic surgery." Studies however have shown that most lottery players don't get plastic surgery.

FACT 3: FORTUNE COOKIES MAY BE LUCKIER THAN YOU THINK

Famously 110 players once won a second-tier prize on the US Powerball on the 30th of March 2005. These lucky winners split a prize of US $19.4 million after playing numbers that they found in a fortune cookie.

FACT 4: NEVER SCOFF AT A LOTTERY ENTRY TIP

If you're in the hospitality industry you may come across some patrons who aren't really generous when it comes to adding a tip to the bill. One lucky waiter, however, scored big time when she was given a tip from a cop, with the offer to split any of the winnings from the ticket. It was April Fool's Day when the cop phoned the waitress to tell her that he had won US $6 million. At first she didn't believe him, but the two families eventually ended up taking the annuity lottery payout of US $285,715 a year (over 21 years). That's one incredible tip!

FACT 5: EVERYONE LIKES TO CELEBRATE A WIN - BIG OR SMALL

A man in Iowa in the United States of America once won US $1.00 from a scratch card. Upon his win he drove to the lottery headquarters and asked for a giant novelty check. The lottery headquarters gave him the check and took a photo of this lucky winner with the lottery logo and all. He ended up spending the money on petrol for his car to get back home.
