Lottery prizes boosted after no-one wins Saturday £11.6 million jackpot

National Lottery prizes have been boosted after nobody won Saturday’s “must be won” jackpot, estimated at £11.6 million.

The Lotto rolldown means the cash increased the value of smaller winnings, with one lucky player scooping £1,161,913 after matching five balls and the bonus ball.

A further 58 ticket-holders won £6,402 for correctly picking five balls, while 5,104 players bagged £214 for matching four balls.

The winning Lotto numbers were 07, 15, 41, 43, 45, 50 and the bonus number was 28.

Set of balls 10 were used with draw machine Guinevere.

Wednesday’s estimated jackpot is £2 million.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “Wonderful, a big jackpot rolldown in tonight’s fantastic £11.6 million ‘must be won’ Lotto draw has resulted in one new millionaire being created, after one lucky ticket-holder matched five main numbers and the bonus ball to win £1.1 million.

“More than 1.2 million players also won £5 plus a free Lucky Dip just for matching two main numbers.

“As no ticket-holder won the jackpot, the prize is shared between all the other winners.

“By playing any National Lottery game, players generate £30 million each week for National Lottery-funded projects.

“This money helps fund projects across the nation, with over 685,000 grants, supporting projects both big and small, having been made across the UK to date.”

No-one matched all five numbers to win the top prize of £350,000 in the Lotto HotPicks, which uses the same numbers as the Lotto draw, but three players matched four out of five to scoop £13,000.

One lucky winner took home the £500,000 top prize in the Thunderball draw, while three players took home £5,000 by matching five balls.

The Thunderball winning numbers were 12, 14, 17, 25, 29 and the Thunderball was 14.
