Lotto gets into the Christmas spirit

Of course the true message of Christmas is all about sharing and giving to others and the National Lottery draw on Saturday night certainly got into the spirit by sharing the prize pool out among very many players. No less than five lottery players matched all six winning balls, sharing the £4.4 million jackpot and giving everyone a boost for Christmas. Not just that but only six players matched five and the bonus, so they picked up a very tidy £245,000 for their trouble too.
That’s eleven lottery players who have all won life-changing amounts of money. None of them are buying a tropical island but all will now be able to live more comfortably after the Saturday night Lotto draw.
In total there was over £13 million paid out on Saturday evening in prizes from the National Lottery so the winners above are just the top of the iceberg, match 5 winners collected a very appealing £2,479 and even match 4 winners collected £90.
We’re fairly sure that all of these lottery prizes, even the small ones will be greatly appreciated by the winners, especially so close to Christmas and with time running out now to get a winning lottery ticket before the big day. There’s just one lottery draw left before Christmas Day and that’s on Wednesday, but when you buy lottery tickets for that draw, don’t forget there’s another Lotto draw actually on Christmas Day so don’t forget to tick for Saturday’s draw too!
