However, sometimes the sitter will get a small fee, especially if they are looking after a property
in an isolated (9)   (local) or have a large number of chores to take care of.

We’ve all imagined what we would do (0) ___with_____ all of that money if we won the lottery.
Unfortunately, winning that life-changing sum depends on dumb luck for the vast
(18)   of us. Not for Stefan Mandel – a Romanian economist who, struggling to make

the lottery.
He spent ages studying mathematical theories, and after years of research, he wrote a “numberpicking algorithm”. With friends, he purchased large blocks of lottery tickets, printed them out
with all (21)   possible combinations his formula recommended – and won the jackpot:
78,783 Romanian lei – nearly £15,000. After (22)   off taxes and other expenses,
Stefan walked away with £3,000. It was enough (23)   start a new life abroad and try
his formula again.
Stefan persuaded investors to put their cash together to build a lotto syndicate and invented a
system where computers filled (24)   tickets automatically. They won 12 lotteries
across Australia and the UK. Later, they won the jackpot in Virginia, US as (25)   .
Unsurprisingly, lottery authorities figured out the scheme, and changed rules to ban computerprinted forms and bulk buying tickets.
Stefan pushed his luck too far after the last win. Unfortunately for him, he didn’t quite
