UK Lotto Ticket Holder Wins £16.9 Million Jackpot
One UK Lotto player certainly had a weekend to remember after landing a £16.9 million jackpot. The ticket holder, who is yet to make contact with National Lottery officials, correctly matched the winning numbers 4, 7, 13, 49, 56 and 58 to scoop the 13th jackpot win of the year.
This is the first time the UK Lotto jackpot has been won this month and the first occasion that the top prize has been secured since Wednesday 16th August, when an anonymous player claimed a reward worth over £1.9 million. This latest victory will give lottery lovers of the UK some hope of success, given that the last time an eight-figure jackpot was won on a Saturday, the top prize was landed again in the very next draw.
Saturday’s draw wasn’t just one to savour for the jackpot winner. One player instantly became £80,295 richer after correctly matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball (6), while a further 1,263,245 ticket holders each walked away with prizes ranging from a free Lucky Dip ticket for matching two numbers to £2,061 for correctly predicting five main numbers.

It proved to be a weekend to remember for UK Lottery fans, as Violet Grahamslaw from Berwick-upon-Tweed collected a EuroMillions Millionaire Maker prize of £1 million shortly before Saturday’s Lotto draw. The 63-year-old, who described herself to National Lottery officials as a keen knitter, landed the reward after playing on Friday 18th August. “Since retiring three years ago I have been doing a lot of knitting and dress making, so I’ll be treating myself to a brand new sewing machine,” the pensioner informed reporters.
If you would like to secure your very own jackpot win this week, Tuesday’s EuroMillions top prize is worth an incredible £33 million, while Wednesday’s Lotto reward of £1.9 million is also well worth winning.
