Simon Cowell still buys lotto tickets

Despite his 200 Million pound fortune, X-factor and Syco boss Simon Cowell says he still continues to play the UK National Lottery.

He mentions in one of the UK newspapers, "I still buy lottery tickets.  I still play,.. but I tick the box that says no publicity so no one would know."  In general, unless the amount won is over £50,000, there is usually no box to be ticked.

The UK Lotto makes 750,000 new winners every week and pays out over £1.9 Billion cash prizes yearly.  Players from outside the UK can play international lotteries online and contribute to good causes.
