One in every 24,737 adults is a National Lottery millionaire jackpot winner in the UK

Just read that on camelot's pdf file, seems quite a high number, I wonder how many adult's in the UK have made themselves a millionaire through their own business, surely must be a higher number than this ?

That seems wrong at first, but lets say that on average 1 millionaire is made a week, and the lottery has been going for 10 years, that would make 520 of them (I'm sure I have heard it is higher than that)
Divide that by 60million that leaves 11,538, so one in 11538 people is a lottery millionaire, maybe it is right.

I'm sure there are far more self made millionaires and many born millionaires too
