We still haven’t had a Lotto winner since November, and it's certainly not from lack of interest. Last night’s £50.4 million jackpot will roll over to Saturday, when somebody will definitely, definitely claim a huge cash prize. According to Camelot, around 200 tickets were being snapped up per second between 6.30 and 7.30 yesterday evening. The frenzy actually took down its website.
Saturday’s kitty will be an estimated £57.8m. If, once more, nobody manages to pick the six correct numbers, the prize will be split between any players who get five numbers, including the bonus ball. Best of luck (to me). [BBC]
