The National Lottery, Where Age Is No Barrier

The National Lottery, Where Age Is No Barrier It seems that age is no barrier to winning the National Lottery, once you’re over 16 and old enough to play, that is! Top Teenage Lottery Millionaires Teenage millionaires include 16 year olds Tracy Makin (who won £1.1m) and Callie Rodgers (who won £1.8m).
