Lotto Ticket Holder Wins £3.5 Million Jackpot
Last Updated: Monday 23rd October 2017, 10:22 am
One lucky Lotto player was left smiling on Saturday evening after winning a jackpot worth an incredible £3.5 million. The winner, who is yet to make contact with National Lottery officials, has become the seventh jackpot winner in the past six months after scooping the incredible prize.
Lotto Winners Like London Buses
Much like the classic London bus adage, Lotto fans were forced to wait some time for a top prize winner to emerge, before a plethora of players each claimed a multi-million pound prize within the space of just a few of days. Following the excitement of Wednesday’s ‘must win’ draw, an evening which saw five ticket holders in the Match 5 + Bonus Ball prize tier share a £25 million fortune, the game was quick off the mark to produce yet another big prize winner.
By correctly matching the numbers 3, 31, 37, 41, 44 and 59, the mystery winner secured the game’s sixth seven-figure sum in the space of just three days. However, following the recent roll down, Saturday’s jackpot winner was worthy of praise after becoming the first player since a single ticket holder on Saturday 9th September to land the game’s ultimate reward by matching all six main numbers.
A Draw Full of Lotto Prize Winners
While one player was left celebrating their good fortune, there were plenty of other prize winners in Saturday’s draw. One of the biggest winners on the night came courtesy of the Millionaire Raffle, as a single ticket holder matched the code TEAL 4894 6928 to win £1 million, while a further 20 participants each claimed £20,000.
The main draw also threw up a number of notable winners, as more than 1.1 million players secured prizes ranging from a free Lucky Dip ticket for matching two numbers to £2,006 for correctly predicting the outcome of five main numbers.
