Festive Spirit Sticks Around for Lottery Players
Updated: Tuesday 27th December 2016
Whilst Christmas might be over apart from the traditional turkey and television re-runs, for lottery players the festivities have only just begun. With massive rollover jackpots up for grabs in both the EuroMillions and Lotto games on Tuesday and Wednesday, and an extra 100 Lotto Raffle winners of £20,000 each guaranteed on New Year’s Eve, the festive excitement isn’t waning one bit, and 2016 is sure to end on a high note for quite a few!
The Christmas Eve Lotto Raffle game on Saturday 24 December delivered a prize of £1 million to the player who matched the code RUBY 1978 1287. There were an extra 200 prizes of £20,000 each, in addition to the usual 20, and the full list of winning codes can be viewed on the Lotto Results page.
The numbers drawn in the main Lotto game on Saturday were 16, 19, 29, 46, 54 and 58, and the Bonus Ball number was 12. Whilst the jackpot rolled over, there were plenty of winners at the lower levels, and more than 1.61 million tickets were lucky enough to pick up a prize of some sort.
Looking ahead to the games coming up this week, the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday 27 December will boast a jackpot which is expected to be worth around £21 million. In addition to that top prize and all of the other prizes which the EuroMillions game offers, the associated EuroMillions Millionaire Maker draw is guaranteed to deliver a prize of £1 million to two participants in the UK.
If you don’t happen to become a millionaire – or maybe even a multimillionaire – on Tuesday, your next chance to win big will be on Wednesday 28 December, when the Lotto game will offer a jackpot worth an estimated £22.1 million. The associated Lotto Millionaire Raffle draw will create another guaranteed winner of £1 million, and 20 players will each win £20,000 thanks to the Lotto Raffle draw.
There will be even more cash up for grabs in the EuroMillions and Lotto draws that are set to bring the year to a close on Friday and Saturday, but it might just be that your festive lottery dreams come true before we get to that point if you can win in midweek.
