Meet Your Average Lottery Winner

In order to mark the lottery’s 10,000th jackpot winner, Camelot have released a profile, including a police-style photo-fit, of their average jackpot winners, with a middle-aged builder apparently the most likely to win big

According to Camelot, the average winners win £2.1million, live in a four or five bedroom house, choose to drive either a BMW, Land Rover or Range Rover and holiday in either the USA and Spain. Most winners also give a share of their prize money to family, friends and charity.

A spokesman from Camelot stated the obvious by saying, “The range of different careers really proves that people from all walks of life have won the jackpot.”

Topping the list of the luckiest professions is construction work, followed by administration, management, driving and catering. Funeral directors come bottom of the list, just one place ahead of bookmakers while estate agents and those who work in advertising and PR also rarely hit the jackpot.

Apparently there is a god after all.
