Five Ticket Holders Split £25 Million UK Lotto Jackpot

Postby » Thu 19 Oct 17, 10:30

Wednesday evening’s UK Lotto draw provided plenty of fireworks as five fortuitous players each landed a prize worth over £5 million. The lucky winners correctly matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to secure a slice of the £25 million jackpot after no players were able to step up to the Match 6 mark. It can’t have escaped your attention that Wednesday night’s Lotto jackpot was huge. So huge in fact that the top prize had exceeded its £22 million cap in the previous draw, resulting in a ‘must-win’ situation for players of the UK game. With the massive prize klaxon sounding loud and clear, lottery lovers were quick to snap up their tickets in an effort to potentially secure a colossal sum of money. No one was able to match all six main numbers, a scenario which, under the current rules of the game, resulted in the jackpot prize rolling down. This came as welcome news for the five ticket holders who each matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball, an outcome that is six times more likely than winning the jackpot. In sharing the game’s top prize, the winning ticket holders brought an end to a run of ten consecutive rollovers.
