An 84-year-old woman has scooped $590.5 million in the Florida lottery - after a stranger allowed her to cut in front of them in the queue.
A group of office workers who won the lottery have chipped in to give a share of their winnings to a colleague who did not buy a ticket.
A group of five 'dinner ladies' from Balfour Primary School in Brighton have won more than £2m on a lottery syndicate ticket.
A US man scooped a £10 million dollar jackpot last year playing the Florida Lotto has won it again.
The Florida Lottery said 67-year-old James Bozeman has claimed a three million dollar jackpot from the drawing held on August 31.
He purchased both winning tickets from the same convenience store.
Mr Bozeman said he started using a different set of numbers since the last time he won and is looking forward to picking a third lucky set for the next draw.
He has chosen to receive his latest winnings in annual payments of £100,000 dollars for the next 30 years.
One hundred people are set to become millionaires on one evening later this month thanks to the National Lottery.
It is hoped the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle draw will break last year's record, which was held on the night of the London 2012 opening ceremony.
On that occasion, 97 of the 100 winners came forward to claim their prize, setting a world record for the most millionaires made in one night by a lottery draw.
A National Lottery spokeswoman said: "This special EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle draw will see 100 UK players become millionaires on one spectacular night. Hopefully we will be celebrating this summer by smashing the record we set last year."
Every UK ticket holder who buys a EuroMillions line automatically enters the draw.
There is usually one winner per draw in the UK, as opposed to the 100 there will be on July 26.
An 84-year-old woman has won $590.5 million in Florida Powerball lottery with a Quick Pick (lucky dip) ticket - after a stranger allowed her to jump in front of them in the queue.
Mindy Crandell told NBC News that she believes she could have been the person who let Gloria Mackenzie enter the queue in front of her.
"I turned around and there was a lady standing there, and she looked at me when the lady had said 'next' and I said just go ahead it's no big deal".
A Quick Pick (lucky dip) ticket purchase has led to an 84-year-old woman scooping $590.5 million in Florida's Powerball lottery.
Gloria Mackenzie matched all six winning numbers in the multi-state Powerball draw on 18 May, after a stranger allowed her to go ahead of them in the queue at a local grocery store.
An 84-year-old woman has won the $590 million (around £385 million) Powerball jackpot, Florida lottery officials confirmed.
Gloria Mackenzie bought the winning ticket for the May 18 draw and has claimed the biggest payout in the multi-state lottery's history.
Mackenzie, who did not appear at a press conference today, was expected to take a lump payout of more than $370 million (£241 million) before taxes, according to NBC News.
The winning ticket was purchased at a supermarket in Zephyrhills, Florida, but the jackpot remained unclaimed for more than two weeks.
The small town, which has just over 13,000 residents, was awash with speculation over who had claimed the huge prize.
Dave Walters, a reporter with a local newspaper, told the Associated Press: "Being in a small town, everybody knows everybody and in some cases, everybody’s business. It’s hard to keep a secret in this town, but this is one of the biggest mysteries we’ve had in a long, long time.”
Watch George Traykov answer questions from journalists who appear much more excited about his win than he does.
A man who won the lottery twice has appeared distinctly underwhelmed by his success. At a press conference, George Traykov, who's from Ilford, said he was not "that bothered" by winning £160,000 on the Euromillions, on top of a previous £1 million win.
Mr Traykov, who never picks his own numbers and always plays the lucky dip, was so laid back about his second big money win that he didn't even claim it until two months after the prize draw in November.
Mr Traykov, who's originally from Bulgaria, bought his winning ticket at a Tesco store in Barking and could maybe one day make it a hat-trick of wins as he said he planned to carry on playing.
The cost of playing the Lottery is set to double - but more winners will share in the prize pot, operator Camelot has announced.
The price of a Lotto line will increase from £1 to £2 in the autumn, but the prize for matching three numbers will rise from £10 to £25.
However, the prize pot for matching five numbers will drop by £500 to £1,000, while the reward for matching five numbers and the bonus number will halve to £50,000.
The prize for matching four numbers will increase from £60 to £100.
The price rise is the first since Lotto launched in 1994 and follows research which found that consumers "want more ways to win more money" from the game.
