Lotto Jackpot Split Between Three Players
The Lotto jackpot was won for the second draw in a row last night as three players managed to match all six main numbers to grab a share of the top prize. There were over a million prizes given away in total, making it a special evening for a host of ticket holders.
The winning numbers were 6, 11, 12, 19, 27 and 31, with Bonus Ball 42. The jackpot stood at £1.9 million after being won in the previous draw on Saturday, and the three winners bagged £663,276 each.
One lucky player picked up £1 million in the Lotto Millionaire Raffle after the code TEAL 4995 0879 was randomly selected as the winner, while another six participants matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to pocket £7,573 each.

While it is not unusual to have multiple jackpot winners, one possible reason for last night’s result is that none of the main numbers were higher than 31 and a common method for choosing numbers is to select significant dates such as birthdays or anniversaries.
Regardless of how last night’s winners selected their numbers, it certainly paid off in a big way, and they will now have 180 days to come forward and claim their prize. They can also think about whether they would like to stay anonymous or go public with their story, and consider how they might want to spend the money.
An incredible Lotto jackpot of £19.1 million was given away in Saturday night’s draw, and now the focus will turn to the next game this weekend to see whether the winning streak will continue. There will be a £3.5 million jackpot on offer and you can pick your numbers online or visit any authorised retailer to put yourself in with a chance of winning. Good luck!Published: Thursday 23rd March 2017
