Claim Made For £17.1 Million Lotto Jackpot Won On Saturday
Updated: Monday 25th June 2018
A claim has already been made for the £17.1 million Lotto jackpot, which was won by a single ticket in an incredible draw on Saturday night.
“It’s great that this ticket-holder has come forward so quickly”
The winning ticket matched the six main numbers 1, 10, 15, 25, 31 and 47 to land the eight-figure windfall. The Bonus Ball was 53. There were over 1.4 million winners on the night, including a sole Match 5 plus Bonus winner of £78,275 in the second prize tier.
Although the owner of the jackpot-winning ticket had up to 180 days from the date of the draw to come forward and claim their prize, they haven’t wasted any time in doing so. The top prize will be paid out as soon as the winning ticket has been validated and Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at the National Lottery, said: "It's great that this ticket-holder has come forward to claim their life-changing prize so quickly. We will now support and help the winner celebrate as they receive their incredible win.”
Lotto’s top prize hadn’t been won since Saturday 26th May, when a £9.2 million jackpot was split between two ticket holders on what turned out to be a memorable Bank Holiday weekend for those players. The jackpot had been steadily building since that win for the past seven draws, and Saturday’s jackpot was bigger than the £14.9 million available in last Friday’s corresponding EuroMillions draw.
It remains to be seen whether the latest Lotto jackpot winner will decide to remain anonymous with their win or choose to go public. Elsewhere, the winning Millionaire Raffle code was BLUE 3310 4223 and there were 20 other winning codes worth £20,000 each.

£500,000 Thunderball Jackpot Won
It was also a Saturday night to remember for one Thunderball ticket holder who won the £500,000 jackpot after matching all six numbers to scoop the six-figure amount. The top prize hadn’t been won since Wednesday 6th June, and the winning numbers on 23rd June were 17, 21, 27, 28 and 32, plus the Thunderball 13.

The Lotto jackpot has now been reset to an estimated £1.8 million following the latest jackpot win, whilst there’s £500,000 up for grabs in tomorrow night’s Thunderball, so make sure you join a syndicate to be in with a chance of winning.
