Could a Lotto Record Be Broken in Tonight’s Draw?
Last Updated: Wednesday 9th December 2015, 08:45 am
Lotto players can set their sights on a fantastic jackpot of £22.6 million in this evening’s draw, creating the possibility that a new record may be set for the biggest single winner in the history of the game. It has already been a momentous start to December, with the top prize rolling over more than four times for the first time ever, and the prospect of an incredible giveaway tonight only adds to the excitement as fans rush out to pick up tickets.
The changes made to Lotto in October were designed to give participants more chances to win prizes and generate larger jackpots, leading to the phenomenal amount on offer for anyone who manages to match all six numbers tonight. The current record for the most money won on a single ticket is £22.5 million, which was split by Hastings work colleagues Mark Gardiner and Paul Maddison in 1995. Back in 2004, Belfast resident Iris Jeffery banked £20.1 million to become the biggest individual Lotto winner.
If the jackpot is scooped by a single ticket holder tonight a new high mark will be set, giving the winner the opportunity to fulfil many of their dreams and provide financial security for their family. It would also ensure that they could look forward to a wonderful Christmas, not just this year but every year for the rest of their lives.
The last time the top prize was won was on Saturday 14th November, when one lucky player landed £4.3 million. There have been six rollovers in a row over the past few weeks, following the removal of the previous four-rollover limit, but there have still been some great prizes given away. A single participant matched all five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball in the last draw on Saturday, and you can see all the recent winning numbers and prize breakdowns in the Lotto Results section.
Make sure to enter tonight’s game by either buying tickets online or visiting an authorised retailer anywhere in the UK, and then check back on National-Lottery.com after the draw to find out if you have won a prize or possibly even become a record-breaker. Good luck!
