Check Your Lottery Tickets - £21 Million Lotto Jackpot Won
After nine consecutive rollovers, the National Lottery’s Lotto jackpot was finally won in the draw on Saturday 12th May. One lucky ticket holder won the entire jackpot of £21,044,592, the highest prize awarded so far this year. On Sunday, National Lottery officials were urging players to check their tickets, as the winner had still not come forward to claim their prize.
Check Your Tickets From Saturday’s Draw
The winning numbers from Saturday’s Lotto draw were 1, 15, 21, 30, 35, and 44, with Bonus Ball 5. Just one ticket matched all six main numbers to land the £21 million prize, and as of Sunday, the winning ticket holder was yet to make themselves known. National Lottery spokesperson Andy Carter said: “After two £9 million Lotto jackpot winners in the last couple of months we now have a single ticket-holder who has banked a massive £21 million. All players are urged to check their tickets to see if they are a Lotto jackpot winner and don't worry - we have enough champagne on ice ready to celebrate."
The winner has 180 days from the date of the draw to claim the prize, after which the money will go into the National Lottery’s Good Causes fund. You can use our Lotto ticket checker to find out if you have the winning numbers from Saturday’s draw.
