Lotto and Lotto Millionaire Raffle Results for Wednesday 20th April 2016
Last Updated: Wednesday 20th April 2016, 22:50
There were three Lotto jackpot winners on Wednesday 20th April, sharing a top prize pool of £2.1 million. The lucky ticket holders each pocketed £729,026 with another player winning the guaranteed £1 million award by matching the top tier Lotto Millionaire Raffle code.
The Lotto numbers were 1, 7, 9, 10, 12 and 31 with Bonus Ball 28 and other prizes scooped on the night ranged from a free Lotto Lucky Dip for matching two main numbers to £7,135 for matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball. You can see the full prize breakdown and all 21 winning Lotto Millionaire Raffle codes at the Lottery Results page.
An extraordinary 1.2 million players won prizes in the draw, with one possible reason being that none of the main numbers were over 31 and five of them were between 1 and 12. Many players pick their numbers based on significant dates and tonight’s winning line fitted neatly within the day and month range. Whilst every selection of six numbers has as much chance of winning as any other, as tonight’s Lotto draw shows, if you choose dates you run the risk of having to share any prize you win with a greater number of other players.
If you want a chance of keeping Saturday’s £4 million jackpot to yourself, you might want to use the Random Lotto Generator to ensure you don’t accidentally choose overly popular combinations. You can buy Lotto tickets online and from authorised retailers until 7:30pm on the day of the draw.
