Special Lotto Christmas Raffle Date Revealed

Special Lotto Christmas Raffle Date Revealed
Updated: Wednesday 6th December 2017

This Christmas looks set to be extra special for lottery players in the UK, because we can reveal that there will be a Lotto Christmas Raffle draw taking place on Saturday 23 December. Signs for the big event have already started popping up in supermarkets and major retailers across the country, so if you weren’t already aware of the coming Christmas treat, read on to find out everything you need to know.

What Happened Last Year...

First, we should say that special celebratory lottery games are not particularly unusual, especially over the festive season. Last year, lottery organisers awarded hundreds of additional prizes of £20,000 to Lotto players by drawing 200 extra Lotto Raffle numbers on Christmas Eve and another 100 extra numbers on New Year’s Eve. If you participated in either of those games then you will have a pretty good idea about what to expect this time.

Lotto Christmas Raffle 2017

No special draw has yet been officially announced for the run-up to the New Year, but we can tell you that the Lotto raffle game on Saturday 23 December – which is the last Lotto draw before Christmas – will award 200 extra prizes of £20,000 each. Tickets will cost exactly the same as they would in any other Lotto draw, but as well as having a chance to win a Lotto Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million, players will also have a chance to win one of 220 prizes of £20,000 instead of the usual 20.

All of that adds up to a real Christmas cracker, and will guarantee that at least 221 players will win big without even factoring in the main draw. Of course, players have the chance to win themselves a fortune in the main Lotto game too, but we won’t know how large the jackpot will be until closer to the time.

Secure Your Chance to Win Big

Lotto entries can be purchased for up to eight weeks in advance, so those of you who want to make sure that you don’t miss out on the special Christmas raffle draw on Saturday 23 December can do so quite easily. All you have to do is enter your chosen numbers for the next six draws (or the next three Saturday draws) and pay for your entries in advance. You will then have a chance to win big, not only in the special draw just before Christmas, but in all of the entered draws that take place in the meantime!

And in the Meantime...

The next Lotto game this Wednesday 6 December will boast a quadruple rollover jackpot which is expected to be worth a very impressive £10.9 million. Choose your numbers for the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 5 December as well and you will also have a shot at winning thanks to an eye-watering jackpot of around £85 million. Download one of our free lottery apps so that you can check the results – and claim any winnings due – within seconds of the draws taking place, and good luck!
