LIVE LOTTO RESULT: What are the winning National Lottery numbers for this Saturday?
The National Lottery has branded LOTTO the “nation’s favorite game,” and with tonight’s £20 million prize, it’s easy to understand why. So, what are the National Lottery winning numbers for Saturday?
Today (July 17), the National Lottery Lotto draw is valued around £20 million, and it must be won. If no one wins the jackpot tonight, the prize pool for the other reward tiers may be increased.
A player must match six major numbers to win the Lotto prize.
The jackpot will roll over to the following Lotto draw if it is not won.
In a Lotto Must Be Won draw, however, if no one wins the jackpot, a Rolldown occurs.
If two or more main numbers are matched, thousands of Lotto players might win a larger cash prize, according to the National Lottery.
Players who match two major numbers will receive a £5 cash prize in addition to their regular Lucky Dip award.
Players who match more than two major numbers can earn a percentage increase in their prize.
Because of recent changes, the Lotto jackpot can now only roll five times instead of the old format’s maximum of £22 million.
Lotto requires that players be 18 years old or older, and it costs £2 to participate.
Simply choose six numbers from 1 to 59 to play Lotto, or choose a Lucky Dip for numbers drawn at random.
Players can try their luck on a Wednesday, Saturday, or both days, and then choose the amount of weeks they want to play Lotto for.
