Saturday’s national lottery jackpot hits £ 20million after no one claims the top prize
Saturday’s national lottery jackpot will be guaranteed £ 20million after no one claims the top prize on Wednesday.
Saturday’s prize will be a “Must Be Won” jackpot, which means that if no winner is found, the money is distributed among the other prize levels.
This means that many players could win a lot more money, according to Andy Carter of Camelot, senior advisor to winners at the national lottery.
No lucky player managed to match the six main numbers to win the jackpot on Wednesday, and no one took home the next biggest prize of £ 1million, for five numbers and the bonus ball.
Some 82 people pocketed £ 1,750 after finding five of the six numbers.
The winning Lotto numbers were 19, 28, 03, 41, 33, 43 and the bonus number was 57.
A set of seven balls and a Merlin drawing machine were used.
No one matched all five numbers to win the Lotto HotPicks, but five players got four numbers to claim £ 13,000.
The winning Thunderball numbers were 38, 19, 39, 18, 34 and the Thunderball number was 01.
No one won the top prize of £ 500,000, but four people took home the second biggest prize of £ 5,000 after matching five numbers.
