Lotto Jackpot Rolls to £5.6 Million
Wednesday’s Lotto draw will offer a rollover jackpot of £5.6 million following Saturday’s draw passing without a top-tier winner. Although no player landed the jackpot, the weekend’s draw saw 261,662 players share a prize pool of £8.3 million while the additional Lotto Raffle draw saw a further £1 million shared among the 50 Lotto Raffle winners.
The winning numbers from Saturday’s draw were selected from the Guinevere machine and were 1, 3, 25, 33, 36 and 42 with Bonus Ball 14. A total of six ticket holders matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to each win £56,495 while an additional 184 players secured a prize of £1,564 each by successfully matching five main numbers. In the remaining two prize tiers, 12,550 players matched four main numbers to each win £121 and more than 248,000 players secured the fixed prize of £25 for matching three main numbers.
The additional Lotto Raffle draw saw 50 ticket holders match one of the winning codes drawn to each win £20,000. The complete list of winning codes from Saturday’s draw is available on the Lotto Raffle Results page.
Attention now turns to Wednesday’s draw and as there is a rollover jackpot up for grabs, plus 100 Lotto Raffle prizes of £20,000, ticket sales are likely to be high. There have been a total of six jackpot winners so far this month who either scooped the entire jackpot or shared it with fellow top-tier winners. If you’d like the chance to become the seventh lucky jackpot winner, then make sure you buy your tickets for the Lotto draw before sales close at 19.30 BST on Wednesday. Tickets are available online through the Lottery Tickets page or in person from an authorised retailer.
