Goodbye Dream Number
The last ever Dream Number game was played on Wednesday 9 February, less than five years after it was launched in July 2006. It would have been very nice to report that the last Dream Number game resulted in someone winning the £500,000 jackpot, but unfortunately nobody managed to match all seven digits of the Dream Number, which was 3748995. The good news is that one player did match the first six digits of the Dream Number, and won a prize of £50,000 as a result. 29,400 other prizes were also won by players matching the first 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 digits.
Another piece of good news is that as we say goodbye to Dream Number we also get to say hello to a brand new Lotto Plus 5 game. Like Dream Number, Lotto Plus 5 is a game that is open to anyone playing the UK Lotto game, but instead of there being just two draws per week (as there were with Dream Number) there are five per week, and these will be held on the days when no Lotto draw takes place.
Anyone who buys a Lotto ticket from today (Thursday 10 February) will have the option – for a modest additional fee – to enter the same Lotto numbers into the five Lotto Plus 5 draws that take place after their Lotto entry. For example, if you buy a ticket for the Lotto draw this Saturday and opt to play Lotto Plus 5, you will be entered into the Lotto Plus 5 draws on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. As the name of the game suggests, this means you get to play in the Lotto plus five more games.
The top prize for matching all six of your numbers in a Lotto Plus 5 draw is £250,000, and smaller consolation prizes will be won by anyone matching 3, 4 or 5 of their numbers. When you consider that you will have five chances of winning any of these prizes when you take advantage of the Lotto Plus 5 option, we think you will agree that this new game is likely to be even more popular than Dream Number was.
The next Lotto jackpot this Saturday 12 February will offer a jackpot of around £4.4 million. Buy your lottery tickets online today and good luck if you also choose to get involved in the first five Lotto Plus 5 draws!Thursday 10th February 2011
