Lucky twins scoop £60k lottery prize after picking same numbers at the bookies

Lucky twins scooped £60,000 after they both picked the same numbers at the bookies.

Andy and Graham Ross, dubbed "The Sombrero Twins", staked £6 each with Betfred on the Spanish Lotto within a minute of each other and won £30,000 each.

Graham, 50, the older by 10 minutes, said: “We lost our father in September so we picked 1, 2 and 3 for the three members of our family and our cat Suzie put her paw on number four. And it was four minutes before we had to put our bet on. She’s in for a food upgrade and a padded basket.”

Andy and Graham, from Oxfordshire, also won £13,000 on the National Lottery using the same numbers in 2016.

They have decided on a trip to Bournemouth for proud mum Beryl, 79, a Caribbean cruise and new cars.

And the twins aren't the only ones with lottery luck, and there are a few incredible Euromillion stories from the past few years.
