Winning Start for New Lotto Game!
The new-style Lotto game got off to a winning start on Saturday 5 October thanks to one ticket which matched the six main numbers to win the special guaranteed jackpot of £10 million. The draw was presented live on BBC One by Chris Evans, and the Lotto results were 05, 15, 17, 19, 20 and 47, with the number 38 appearing as the Bonus Ball. We don’t know who the jackpot winner is at this stage, but you can rest assured that if he or she chooses to go public we will bring you more news as and when we get it.
There were 11 tickets that matched five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball number to secure a second tier prize worth £43,059 each, and 397 tickets won £1,012 each by matching five main numbers only. At the lower levels, 23,574 tickets matched four numbers to win £90 each and the smallest possible prize of £25 was won by each of 441,686 tickets that matched three main numbers.
All of that was exciting enough, but the new Lotto Raffle game fulfilled its promise and created an additional 1,000 winners of £20,000 each. We don’t have space to list all of the winning numbers here, but we do have them all on our dedicated Lotto Results page, so be sure to check your tickets if you haven’t already done so. To make things easier, you can enter your raffle number to have it checked automatically against all 1,000 winning numbers.
The next Lotto game this Wednesday 9 October will offer a brand new jackpot with an advertised value of £2.5 million, and there will be 50 winners of £20,000 each in the associated Lotto Raffle game. Then, regardless of what happens on Wednesday, there will be another very special Lotto draw on Saturday 12 October, with another guaranteed jackpot of £10 million and another 1,000 players winning a Lotto Raffle prize of £20,000 each.
More than 446,000 prize winners on Saturday proved that lottery success is perfectly achievable, so if you fancy being in with a shot of winning big in the next game, visit this page to buy your tickets online and good luck with your numbers!
