Big Lotto Jackpot To Kick Off Weekend As Camelot Hits Good Causes Goal

Last Updated: Thursday 24th September 2020, 10:57

It is that time of year when hopeful fans allow their minds to dream of a historic win. They know it is unlikely, but if it comes true it would be a summer to remember for the rest of their lives. Yes, England are about to kick off their World Cup campaign, but there is also a big Lotto jackpot of £13.6 million up for grabs on Saturday.

Lotto players will be hoping it is a week of two halves. Nobody hit the target on Wednesday night as the jackpot rolled over for a fifth consecutive time, but there could well be a winner this weekend if enough shots are taken at the top prize.

The winning numbers on Wednesday were 5, 15, 22, 33, 38 and 45, with Bonus Ball 11. Some players may have been left as sick as parrots after missing out on prizes, but there were 810,861 winners in total, including three participants who matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to land £15,364 each.

The lucky ticket holder who had the Lotto Millionaire Raffle code of RUBY 6337 1165 also had cause to celebrate after they were randomly selected as the winner of £1 million. Go to the Lotto Results page to see a list of the other 20 winning Lotto Raffle codes, worth £20,000 each, plus a full Lotto prize breakdown.

More Money For Good Causes

The Lotto jackpot was last won on Saturday 26th May, when two players split £9.2 million, and a lot has changed over the past two and a half weeks. Donald Trump has shaken hands with Kim Jong-un, the Spanish football team has got a new manager and Camelot has announced that more money went to National Lottery Good Causes last year.

A sales increase in the year ending March 2018 - largely fuelled by record digital sales - allowed Camelot to raise over £1.6 billion for worthy projects around the UK. Visit the Good Causes page to find out more about the work that is being done with the money raised from ticket sales.

The Good Causes Fund receives 28p from every £1 played on games such as Lotto and EuroMillions, plus any of the prizes which go unclaimed. National Lottery players have 180 days from the date of a draw to come forward, otherwise they miss out on the money.

Unclaimed EuroMillions Prize in Newcastle

The final whistle is about to go on one EuroMillions prize dating back to 19th December 2017. The ticket was bought in Newcastle and won £1 million in the Millionaire Maker, but the player only has until 17th June to get in touch otherwise the prize will expire.

Andy Carter, the National Lottery’s Senior Winners’ Advisor, said: “Time really is running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the money.

“We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one final time or look anywhere a missing EuroMillions ticket could be hiding. This life-changing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there.”

Don’t Miss Out

If you want to make sure you don’t miss out on a prize and suffer an anguish worse than losing a World Cup penalty shootout, it might be a good idea to take part online. It is impossible to lose your ticket and you will be notified automatically if you win. You will also be paid out most prizes straight away.

You can join an online syndicate now, or play via a retailer if you prefer, and then sit down to try and cheer your numbers on to glory this weekend. Good luck!
