Jack­pot num­ber of Lotto mil­lion­aires

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A RECORD num­ber of Na­tional Lot­tery play­ers be­came mil­lion­aires in 2016, with 347 peo­ple re­ceiv­ing cheques for £1m or more – up from 341 in 2015.

Lotto’s high­est jack­pot of £66m on Jan­uary 9 was shared by two ticket-hold­ers, David and Carol Martin, from the Scot­tish Bor­ders, and an­other win­ner who chose to stay anony­mous.

In April a sin­gle un­named ticket-holder scooped an en­tire £35m jack­pot.
