Health Lottery Special Jackpot
Play the Health Lottery this Saturday 21 January and if you match all five numbers selected you will win a top prize of £250,000 instead of the usual £100,000. That’s a cool quarter of a million pounds that is up for grabs, and because the top prize isn’t shared in the Health Lottery game you won’t win a penny less even if there is more than one winner! The cost of tickets will of course be exactly the same as usual, so this special Health Lottery draw will effectively be giving you extraordinary value for money, and it’s even possible to win £250,000 without matching any of your numbers!
In case you’re thinking that our last statement sounded a little outlandish, allow us to explain what we mean. The Health Lottery top prize is usually won by any player who matches all five numbers, but if no player achieves that feat then a Second Chance Guaranteed Winner rule comes into play. In that situation, one ticket will be selected at random to receive the top prize automatically, so it is perfectly possible that if no player matches all five numbers, a ticket matching no numbers could be randomly selected to win £250,000.
The special top prize of £250,000, along with the Second Chance Guaranteed Winner rule, is almost certain to make the Health Lottery draw this Saturday an extremely popular one. And we haven’t even mentioned any of the consolation prizes that can also be won – players matching four or three numbers win £500 or £50 each, respectively.
The Health Lottery results last Saturday 14 January were 05, 14, 29, 41 and 48, and the top prize was a regular £100,000. Two players matched all five numbers and so each of them won £100,000 each. Now players have the chance to win £250,000 each for doing exactly the same thing this weekend, and if nobody succeeds then one player will still win £250,000 thanks to the Second Chance Guaranteed Winner rule that we have already mentioned.
Every ticket purchased for the Health Lottery game makes a contribution to health-related good causes, so players can feel good about getting involved no matter what happens. Good luck to those of you who decide to have a go and be sure to let us know if you land the big one!
