Who wants to be a Cornish millionaire?
Duchy lottery winners have been speaking about it has changed their lives.
Over the last year Lee and Laura Orchard from St Austell won a million pounds on a scratch card.
And staff at Cornwall Equipment Loan Store in Bodmin won the jackpot in a syndicate, and shared it between them.
Lena Barnes put the ticket in and tells us what they splashed the cash on.
She said: "Credit cards, paying off bills for everybody, I might just have enough for a new kitchen, as for a lot of the other winners they bought things like new cars, holidays, somebody was getting married, somebody else had told his children he couldn't afford a holiday this year so that has since changed.
"I couldn't believe it to start off with, having had a bad week just before that I thought one of my colleagues was messing around when he told us we had won on six numbers, as I'm usually the office practical joker, in turn they didn't believe me so it took a while for it to sink in."3:09pm 29th October 2014
