She thought she had won £182 million in the lottery but did not have credit: she never actually bought the ticket

 Many people dream of winning the lottery and settling down forever without having to worry about rent, bills, their future, or the future of their children. How many of us play the lottery weekly, hoping to win? Rachel Kennedy’s life changed when she discovered she supposedly had the winning ticket in the national lottery. It didn’t take her long to contact her mom and boyfriend to tell them she had won a whopping £ 182,000,000 pounds ($ 223 million dollars)! However, no one could have predicted the cold shower.  

Rachel Kennedy and her boyfriend Liam McCrohan were looking forward to spending part of the enormous winnings, enjoying the rest of their lives as much as possible, when a phone call abruptly brought them back to reality. While Rachel had all the winning numbers – they were the numbers she used every week when playing the lottery – she hadn’t checked to see if she had purchased the ticket online. Rachel set up a weekly automatic ticket purchase through the app on her mobile phone. Unfortunately, her residual credit had run out and the app was unable to purchase a ticket. Technology and her own negligence let her down the only time she really needed the automatic purchase service.

In five weeks, the young Brighton University student played the same numbers – 6, 12, 22, 29, 33, 6 and 11 – without winning. The fact that she didn’t purchase the ticket was too bad. There is no doubt that UK lottery operators have urged their customers to check their purchases carefully. Rachel and her boyfriend couldn’t do anything because they didn’t have a ticket, so they never won. It is a real shame, especially since the chances of winning are very slim… winning twice is practically impossible!

Do you have any experience buying lottery tickets?
