Massive £5.3million jackpot could be yours after National Lottery jackpot prize winning ticket goes begging

A MASSIVE £5.3million jackpot is up for grabs after no one claimed the National Lottery prize winning ticket tonight.

The life-changing jackpot has been rolled over to Wednesday, the National Lottery said.

The winning Lotto numbers on Saturday were 31, 13, 56, 36, 15, 32 and the bonus number was 53.

Set of balls number 10 were used and the draw machine was Arthur.

The next biggest prize of £1 million, for five numbers and the bonus ball, was claimed by one winner.

But no one matched all five numbers or four numbers to win the Lotto HotPicks – of which the prizes were £350,000 and £13,000 respectively.

The winning Thunderball numbers were 35, 27, 2, 7, 9 and the Thunderball number was 7.

One person bagged the top prize of £500,000 and six people got the next biggest prize of £5,000 after matching five numbers.

The first National Lottery draw was held on November 19, 1994 when seven winners shared a jackpot of £5.8million.

The largest amount ever to be won by a single ticket holder was £42million – won in 1996.

Gareth Bull, a 49-year-old builder, won £41million in November, 2020 and ended up knocking down his bungalow to make way for a luxury manor house with a pool.

Sue Davies, 64, bought a lottery ticket to celebrate ending five months of shielding during the pandemic — and won £500,000.

Sandra Devine, 36, accidentally won £300k – she intended to buy her usual £100 National Lottery Scratchcard, but came home with a much bigger prize.

The biggest jackpot ever to be up for grabs was £66million in January last year, which was won by two lucky ticket holders.

The odds of winning the lottery are estimated to be about one in 14 million – but you've got to be in it to win it.
