Could Wednesday Be Your Night to Win the Lotto Jackpot?
Last Updated: Tuesday 9th May 2017, 09:23 am
This Wednesday, Lotto players will be given the chance to win a jackpot estimated to be worth £15.9 million. This eight-figure sum would certainly prove life-changing for any winner, so could you be paying National Lottery headquarters a visit very soon?
This latest big money prize has been increasing ever since Saturday 15th April when a single ticket holder scooped a top prize of £3.4 million. Six rollovers later and a winner still hasn’t been found, leading many players to believe their time to shine could be right around the corner.
There is certainly no reason why the top prize shouldn’t be won this Wednesday. So far, three of the seven jackpot wins this year have occurred midweek, meaning another would even things up nicely. And the prospect of a victory looks even more possible when you consider that the month of May has a habit of producing winners of Lotto’s main prize. Since 2010, a total of 40 jackpots have been won during the fifth month, meaning that plenty of players have headed into the summer with a spring in their step.
This year certainly hasn't disappointed when it comes to producing jackpot winners either. To date, seven top prizes have been claimed by 11 different ticket holders; this marks a slight increase compared to the same stage in 2016, when just ten winners shared seven lucky bounties. This week could see 2017 pull even further clear, if anyone is fortunate enough to land the eight-figure sum on offer.
Should this coming draw produce a winner, it will be the second biggest prize total of the year, narrowly trailing a £19.1 million jackpot claimed by a single ticket holder on Saturday 18th March. It would also be the fifth total to surpass the £10 million mark, a prize size Lotto fans have become more than familiar with over the past few years.
If you fancy your chances of landing this sensational Lotto reward, you can play online or via any authorised retailer throughout the UK. Best of luck!
