Pagan Ritual Attempts to Locate Lottery Winner

The first port of call is usually searching behind the sofa, but a Pagan priest in Brighton has come up with a more unusual method to try and find a missing winning lottery ticket.

David Spofforth, the priest of Avalan, has conducted a pagan ceremony to attempt to find the holder of an unclaimed winning EuroMillions lottery ticket. The plea to the Goddesses of the four classical elements - air, fire, water and earth - took place at St Ann's Well in Hove, a location connected to the mythological ley lines which run across the South Downs.

The ticket was bought in Brighton and Hove on July 26 but has remained unclaimed, despite being potentially worth £1m..

Spofforth stated: “It was a very enjoyable ceremony. We have asked the Goddesses very nicely to help us find the winner. All we can do is put the message out there and hope that it is heard. The timing is very fortuitous. We are in the season of Samhain, the late autumn time of the final harvest and you could say this unclaimed prize is, in its own unique way, a harvest. I believe the Goddesses will see it this way and help to bring about a EuroMillions harvest in Brighton and Hove."

We still think the old sofa check might be a better option.
