THE number of Lotto jackpot winners hits 10,000 this week – and Camelot have revealed what the average winners look like.

The Mr and Mrs Lotto composite photos were created using similar techniques to photofit pictures of suspects issued by the police.

The couple’s physical characteristics are based on a mixture of facial features taken from a sample of winners who have scooped jackpot amounts ranging from £500,000 to £15million since 1994.

The average jackpot is around £2.1million, with the majority of winners between 45 and 50 years old.

Most now live in a detached four or five-bedroom house within 20 miles of where they used to live.

A BMW is their favourite car and the US and Spain their favourite holiday destinations.

Most give money to family and friends and have made a charitable donation.

And for the first time, Camelot have revealed a list of the top 40 jobs held by winners – with builders topping the list.

At the opposite end of the scale, funeral directors are in the lowest ranking profession in the chart in 40th position.

A National Lottery spokesman said: “There are now 10,000 people across the UK who have won a share of the Lotto jackpot.

“The range of different careers really proves people from all walks of life have won the jackpot.”

1 Construction work (builders, labourers, etc)

4 Driving (lorries, taxis, etc)

5 Catering industry (cooks, publicans, etc)

6 Manufacturing (machine operators etc)

7 Customer services (shop assistants, retail workers etc)

8 Financial sector (insurance, accountancy etc)

IF you’re dreaming of becoming a lottery millionaire, it helps if you look like this.

These police-style photofits of the average jackpot winner were produced by operator Camelot.

Mr and Mrs Lotto win #2.1million, are aged between 45 and 50 and live in a four or five bedroom detached house.

BMW is their favourite car followed by Mercedes and Land Rover or Range Rover. Top holiday destinations are America and Spain, and most give money to family, friends and charity.

The images, released to mark the lottery’s 10,000th jackpot winner since it began in 1994, are based on the features of a sample of top prize winners.

Around one fifth of those are individual winners of #1million or more with the rest of the jackpots claimed by a syndicate sharing the cash. Camelot has also produced a list of the luckiest professions – with builders the most likely to win top prize.

Funeral directors are the unluckiest just ahead of bookmakers.

A lottery spokesman said: “The range of different careers really proves that people from all walks of life have won the Lotto jackpot.”

Lottery millionairess Joanne Gilbert has gone back to work washing dirty sheets in a hospital laundry in Cwmbran, Gwent, for #150 a week.

Joanne, 47, who won #1.1million seven weeks ago, said: “I’m determined to keep my feet on the ground and just wanted to put my life back on an even keel after all the excitement.”
