Things have got pretty exciting on the UK Lotto this week.
As the UK Lotto is a 6 from 49 game, the odds are much better than a lot of lottery games – so rollovers are much rarer.
But for only the 7th time ever in the history of the UK Lotto, it rolled over a third time on Saturday. Which makes the Wednesday night draw a fantastic £17.8 Million jackpot.
If nobody wins the jackpot in this draw, things get very exciting on Saturday. The UK Lotto is only allowed to rollover 4 times maximum. After that the prize MUST be paid out.
And if nobody matches all 6 numbers, it gets paid to the next prize level down. That could mean winning a million or so just by matching 5 and the bonus, or even only 5 numbers.
