L.E. (Lorraine Eleanor) Hattingh-Spurgeon was born in 1953, in the shadow of the Great Pyramid of Giza, in Cairo, Egypt.

She was educated in Pretoria, New York and Beirut, moving as a result of her father’s itinerant career as a diplomat.

Her childhood experiences shaped her future spiritual path.
As a teenager, Hattingh-Spurgeon believed she was destined to become a person whose epiphanies would one day change the destiny of others. She kept her premonitions a secret, though, because she feared criticism.

After attending the American Community School of Beirut (ACS), she graduated from the University of Nebraska, and then studied at the University of the Witwatersrand.

She worked in office positions for several years before becoming an entrepreneur, but still she felt unfulfilled. After her mother’s death in 1986, Hattingh-Spurgeon decided to work in London and moved there the following year.

In 1995, she had an epiphany about a hidden code in the British National Lottery and began seeing number patterns.
She returned to South Africa in 1996 to fully research and document her discovery which she called "the Lottery Code".

She lives near Johannesburg where she is currently working to spread the message of The Lottery Code throughout the world.


Her father, Albertus Lambertus Hattingh, came from an old Afrikaner family. His ancestor, Hans Heinrich Hattingh, came to the Cape in 1692 from Speyer in Germany and owned “Hadersleben” and “Spier” wine farms near Stellenbosch and “La Motte” estate near Franschoek.

Her British-born mother, Gloria Mary Hattingh (nee Spurgeon),
was related to the English fundamentalist Baptist minister and celebrated preacher and author, Charles Haddon Spurgeon.

The Lottery Code by L.E. Hattingh-Spurgeon has not been authorised or endorsed in any way by The National Lottery United Kingdom or its operator, Camelot Group plc.
