One winner of £17.7m Lotto Triple Rollover
LONDON – One lucky ticketholder matched all six numbers in Wednesday night’s Lotto draw to win the triple rollover jackpot of £17.7 million.
The winning numbers drawn were 9, 11, 37, 40, 41, 49 and the bonus number was 33.
The win is the biggest since January 2008 when Steve Smith from Heml Hempsteaqd scooped nearly £19 million. It was also only the seventh ever triple rollover.
The lucky ticketholder becomes the 20th biggest single winner of both the National Lottery and Euromillions draws.
There was a similarly large National Lottery jackpot in November 2010, but it was shared between four tickets.
Large rollover jackpots are more likely to be split as they attract many more players than normal as people look for the biggest prizes possible.
The identity of the winner is yet to be revealed.
