A lottery player from Liverpool is celebrating after landing two prizes in the Lotto game on Saturday 16 November. Brian McTigue, who is 66, enters three lines of numbers in every draw, and has done so since the game was launched in 1994. He checked the first of his tickets the day after the draw and discovered that it had won him a modest consolation prize, but it was only later that he found out he had also landed himself a half share of the Lotto jackpot itself, which was worth £5,701,968!
Lottery players in the UK who keep abreast of the news can’t fail to have seen the devastation that was recently caused in the Philippines by Typhoon Haiyan and the storm surge that followed it. Official figures say that more than 3,900 people have been killed, over 1,180 are missing and around half a million people have been left homeless. Now, the Big Lottery Fund has announced that up to £5 million is being made available through its International Communities programme to support UK charities that are providing assistance in the affected areas.
Two tickets shared a Lotto rollover jackpot worth £5,701,968 on Saturday night, so the lucky players concerned will now be starting a brand new week with an extra £2,850,984 at their disposal. The Lotto results on Saturday 16 November were 03, 19, 21, 30, 41 and 47, and the number 38 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. We mentioned last Monday that all of the Saturday Lotto jackpots since the new rules came into force at the start of October had been landed, so it will be interesting to see how much longer this winning pattern can hold for.
