Four share the double Lotto rollover

It was the first double rollover seen in the UK Lotto since March so it’s been a while since this amount of cash was available to UK Players and the £12.8 million jackpot ensured that everyone was playing. In the event the wealth was shared as four lucky UK Lottery players chose all six winning numbers to share the jackpot and walk away with £3.2 million each.
Ticket sales were high for the double Lotto rollover draw and that pushed the jackpot almost a million over its estimate. You can check the winning numbers on our lottery results page and see if you were one of the four very lucky UK Lotto jackpot winners.
They weren’t the only winners in last night’s UK Lotto draw either, there was over £24 million paid out in prizes. Ten lucky players matched five main balls and the bonus ball and each of those received over £168,000 and another 711 players matched five balls without the bonus netting them £1,477. That’s a lot of lucky players and no doubt there will be many celebrations across the UK this morning.
Who knows when we will see another jackpot this high on the UK Lotto draw but if you’re looking for another big jackpot then look no further than next Fridays Euromillions Lottery draw, there’s £90 million up for grabs as the jackpot has rolled over five times and you can buy lotto tickets for that draw right now.
The next UK Lotto draw will be held on Wednesday evening and the jackpot there is an estimated £2.4 million.
