Lotto Jackpot Must Be Won After Christmas Rollover

Postby » Mon 25 Dec 17, 01:10

The final Lotto draw before Christmas failed to produce a jackpot winner, but there were some sensational prizes given away in a special seasonal raffle. The jackpot now also has to be won in the next game on Wednesday, guaranteeing that lucky players will have the perfect tonic for any festive excesses. The excitement of the pre-Christmas draw and all the big prizes helped to push the jackpot even higher than anticipated, and it nudged past its jackpot cap of £22 million last night. National Lottery rules state that, once this figure has been passed, the top prize must be won in the next draw. The jackpot stands at an estimated £23.5 million for Wednesday night, and the full amount now has to be given away. If nobody matches all six main numbers, the money will be shared between players in the next highest winning tier. This creates a wonderful opportunity to potentially pick up a multimillion-pound sum without having to match the full winning line. The last time the jackpot had to be won was on Wednesday 18th October, and five ticket holders split £25 million after matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball.
