James Bond; Lottery


Staying with James Bond, we learn that William Hills have opened a book on how many films Daniel Craig will play the secret agent in.

Four films is the 7-4 favourite, with 12-1 on Craig playing the character six times.

And who will be the next Bond? Get 10-1 on Hugh Jackman (favourite) and 25-1 on Russell Crowe.

Lucky For Some

The National Lottery is celebrating its 12th birthday.

Since the balls were first drawn November 19, 1994, the big bet has created more than 1,900 millionaires and multi-millionaires.

You might not have won the top prize but, according to Camelot, the event’s organisers, one in 15,917 of the country’s adult players has taken home a share of a jackpot (smallest prize: £10). And your chances of winning the jackpot?

One in 13,983,816. Odds of winning any prize? 1 in 54. And one in four jackpots is won by a syndicate. But what about the winning numbers?

It is no myth – the unluckiest number is…13. According to Camelot, 13 has been drawn 132 times, 15 times as a bonus ball and 117 times as a main ball.

The luckiest balls have been 38 (199 times), 25 (186) and 31 (184).
