A lucky UK Lottery player has become an instant multi-millionaire, pocketing £11.3million!
One very lucky UK Lottery ticket holder has won a staggering £11.3million rollover jackpot in the National Lottery, so the question is, have you checked your tickets yet?
Saturday's UK Lottery winning numbers are: 05, 08, 22, 33, 36, 43 and the Bonus Ball is 21.
Andy Carter, the UK Lottery’s senior winners' adviser said: "It's great news for Lotto players after one ticket-holder scooped Saturday night's £11.3M 'Must Be Won' Lotto jackpot.
"All players are now urged to check their tickets and claim this life-changing prize.
"Since November, Lotto has seen new bigger cash prizes up for grabs - and tonight saw one lucky ticket-holder win an incredible £1M for matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball and over 150,000 players scoop £30 for matching just three main numbers.
"By buying a ticket for Lotto or any other National Lottery game, every player is helping to raise money for Good Causes.
"On average, around £30M is raised every week for projects across the UK, both big and small, including funding everything from local community projects to preserving the nation's heritage."
The biggest UK Lottery jackpot was £66 million that took place in January 2018, which was won by two lucky ticket holders. However, due to the new UK Lottery rule changes, which were put in place to make more millionaires according to player requests we won’t be seeing extremely high jackpots anymore. Instead, more players will be given the opportunity to walk away as instant millionaires due to the Must Be Won draws.
Must Be Won draws
The UK Lottery jackpot can now rollover 5 times. The 5th rollover becomes a Must Be Won draw.
If no one matches all 6 main numbers in a Must-Be-Won draw, the jackpot will no longer just go to a single prize tier as before (e.g. Match 5+Bonus).
Instead, there are ‘Rolldowns’ where the jackpot is shared out through all of the winning cash prize tiers (Match 5+Bonus, Match 5, Match 4 and even Match 3), boosting each individual prize amount! So you will win and even BIGGER prize!
Each winning cash prize tier is allocated a set percentage of the jackpot and example prizes in a Rolldown are as follows (these are all estimated and will be based on the number of winners in each tier):
- Match 5+Bonus Ball – £1.2 million (compared with £1 million)
- Match 5 – £10,500 (compared with £1,750)
- Match 4 – £500 (compared with £140)
- Match 3 – £100 (compared with £30)
When it comes to the big things in life, you've got to be in it to win it! So make sure that you're in unbelievable weekend draws to stand a chance of taking home the really big prizes!
