In addition there were 50 Lotto Raffle prizes of £20,000 distributed, with other awards ranging from £25 for matching three main numbers to £875 for matching five. There is a full prize breakdown and a list of the winning Lotto Raffle codes at the Lottery Results page of Lottery.co.uk.
This is the second time in two months that the rollover limit has been reached, after five players from the Match 5 plus Bonus tier shared a haul of £15 million on Wednesday 17th December 2014. Only three players have matched all six main numbers in 2015 so far, with the last occurrence coming on Saturday 10th January when one ticket holder bagged £4.8 million.
If you would like to be the fourth player of January to make a clean sweep of the winning line in the final draw of the month on Saturday, then you will need to buy your entries before 7:30pm on the day. Tickets are on sale online, which will be a blessing for those battered by blizzards, or you can visit an authorised retailer whilst you’re picking up your de-icer and rock salt.
