£20 Million Jackpot on Offer in Lotto’s Easter Extravaganza
Last Updated: Thursday 30th March 2023, 14:49
A number of Lotto players are sure to have an extra reason to celebrate this Easter, with a £20 million jackpot up for grabs on Saturday 8th April. What’s more, it’s a Must Be Won draw, so the jackpot money is guaranteed to be paid out on the night.
It is the first special draw of 2023 - when the jackpot is raised to a set amount without the need for rollovers. Must Be Won draws are usually only held after there have been five consecutive rollovers, so there is not enough time for the jackpot to reach a figure as large as £20 million.
If a single ticket holder matches all six main numbers on 8th April, they will become one of the biggest Lotto winners of recent years. If nobody wins the jackpot, there will be a rolldown and the jackpot will be split between everyone who matches at least two numbers.
You will still receive your regular prize if there’s a rolldown - a free Lucky Dip, £30, £140, £1,750 or £1 million - but you will also get a slice of the £20 million jackpot.
Depending on how many winners there are in each prize category, rolldowns have the potential to boost the value of payouts significantly. For example, you might end up receiving more than £80 for matching three numbers instead of the standard £30.
You can play Lotto online or by visiting an authorised retailer anywhere in the UK. Pick six numbers from 1 to 59 and then check the results to find out how many you matched.
If you don’t have a favourite set of numbers, you may want to use the Random Number Generator to provide you with a 6/59 line in an instant. You can even generate multiple sets if you are looking to buy several tickets to boost your chances of winning.
