Youngest EuroMillions victor plans to sue lottery for 'ruining' her life

Most days I wish I had no money.

"There's no one in the same boat as me, no one who really understands".

She said: 'I thought it would make it ten times better but it's made it ten times worse.

Appearing on BBC's Victoria Derbyshire Show on Thursday, Ms Park said winning the lottery had been a very stressful experience at times.

After the winning the massive sum of money, Jane said she splashed the cash on holidays, handbags and cars, but didn't know how to manage her money in the slightest.

The paper didn't provide quotes from the lottery victor saying as much, but when asked about a possible lawsuit, a Camelot spokeswoman said that she was aware of Park's statements - but noted that the company has no control over the age requirements.

'People look at me and think, 'I wish I had her lifestyle, I wish I had her money.' But they don't realise the extent of my stress.

An independent financial and legal panel was set up for her shortly after her win and Camelot also put her in touch with another victor, who won at the same age, to help her adjust to the win.

Park said she thinks that 18 - not 16 - should be the minimum age for winning the lottery.

The UK's youngest ever lottery victor is planning to sue the national lottery operator, Camelot, for enriching her and thus blighting her existence. But, despite being able to afford a lifestyle most can't, she told United Kingdom talk show Loose Women that she's miserable and is planning a lawsuit against UK's National Lottery.

Park also laments how her social life has been adversely affected after the win as her friends are unable to understand her position.

Park who won the Euromillions in 2013 has splashed out on breast implants, two properties and a chihuahua, but admitted she struggles to find objective in life.

"Anyone over the age of 16 can play the National Lottery, and therefore win a prize", the spokeswoman said.

"I have material things but apart from that my life is empty".

'But because it has gone so far already, I won't even have to go any further, I feel like I have been listened to now and people are actually listening to the difficulties'. "I had no clue what they meant".

"I've read about other lottery winners who've just blown it all and I can totally see how it can be done", she said.

A British woman who won the lottery at age 17 is considering legal action against the British lottery for "negligence". That support is tailored to each winner's situation and circumstances - and for younger winners, their age will obviously be an important factor in the advice and support offered.

Jane Park, of Edinburgh, Scotland, won 1 million pounds in 2013 in the Euromillions draw.

"Our role is to offer tailored and specific advice and support to any victor, no matter their age", the spokeswoman said. The minimum legal age for lottery players is up to the government, the company said. And, she blames her emptiness on the National Lottery, saying it shouldn't allow kids under 18 to play.
