Why Tonight’s £24.8 Million UK Lotto Jackpot M...

Postby worldlottery.net » Wed 18 Oct 17, 10:00

Excitement is building amongst UK Lotto players ahead of tonight’s draw, which will see at least one player land the jackpot sum. Having rolled over for ten successive draws, the game’s top prize has breached the £22 million jackpot cap, meaning that the £24.8 million on offer must be won. For those who are unaware, Lotto has a jackpot cap of £22 million. This limit was introduced in 2016 and followed a number of big prize wins in excess of £30 million, including a £66 million sum which was shared between two players on Saturday 9th January 2016. During this time, the jackpot cap was £50 million, a rule that had been introduced in October 2015; however, in order to generate more excitement by offering larger prizes on a more regular basis, the bar was significantly lowered. The new rules state that the Lotto jackpot may roll until it reaches £22 million, after which the prize on offer can roll just once more before it must be won in the following draw. If a winner cannot be found, the prize money will roll down to the next highest winning prize tier, most likely to be claimed by those able to match five numbers and the Bonus Ball. Should this situation occur, players will find themselves six times more likely to land a huge sum of cash.
