A record-breaking year for Lotto is set to end on a fittingly high note this Saturday, with a gigantic jackpot which must be won and 100 extra Lotto Raffle codes.
The top prize stands at an estimated £25.4 million and rules dictate that the full amount must now be given away, after the jackpot cap of £22 million was surpassed in the most recent draw on Wednesday and nobody won. If there are no players who match all six main numbers on New Year’s Eve, the money will be split between participants in the next tier with winners.
There is a great opportunity, therefore, to snap up a huge cash reward even without matching the full winning line. The last time the jackpot had to be won, on 14th September, three ticket holders walked away with £8.1 million each after matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball.
As well as the enormous jackpot, there is a special edition of the Lotto Millionaire Raffle. There will be the usual one code of £1 million and 20 codes worth £20,000, but there will also be a further 100 codes of £100,000 to create even more winners.
It has already been quite a year for Lotto, with two ticket holders sharing the largest jackpot to have ever been won on the game, £66 million, back in January. The biggest prize to have ever been won by a single ticket, £35.1 million, was also scooped in April.
Statistics revealed earlier this week showed that 347 prizes of at least £1 million had been won across all National Lottery games in 2016, up from 341 the previous year, and the final figure will be higher as Lotto fans gear up for a spectacular New Year’s Eve draw. If you want to play, tickets can be bought online or from authorised retailers. Good luck!
