2016 Medal Event
The Lotto Medal Event was held on Saturday 27th August 2016, in which Lotto Millionaire Raffle awarded multiple additional prizes based around the number of medals won by Team GB at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
The National Lottery promised a £1 million raffle prize for every gold medal brought back by a Great Britain and Northern Ireland team member from Brazil, a £100,000 award for every silver and £50,000 for each bronze.
Players had the same Lotto Millionaire Raffle codes entered into both the regular raffle draw and the special event draw, with the usual single £1 million prize and 20 £20,000 prizes being drawn before the gold, silver and bronze awards in that order.
The prizes on offer in the draw were:
- 27 prizes of £1 million
- 23 prizes of £100,000
- 17 prizes of £50,000
Take a look at the Lotto Results page to see the full list of winning codes from the draw.
For every £1 played on National Lottery games, 28p is paid into the Good Causes fund, helping support worthy projects across the country. A proportion of the money raised is used to help UK Olympians, with the majority of those who participated in Rio having received some lottery support.
