Another chance of winning a hefty prize money of £3.8 Million came to an end on the night of 16th January, 2021.
The National Lottery’s results were declared live and revealed to be 3, 15, 38, 45, 48, 53, whilst 27 came out to be the bonus number.
In Saturday’s draw, the jackpot amount was £3.8 Million which could be life-changing for anyone from any part of the world. Equally important in Saturday’s draw was the option of rollover.

As per the rules of the game, in order for someone to win the jackpot, a person is required to match 6 numbers. The runner up prize money is £1 million for which a person would have to match at least 5 numbers.
But as soon as the results came out, it instantly revealed that there was none who was able to match entire 6 numbers. This meant that the jackpot prize money of £3.8 million did not go in anyone’s pocket and remains unclaimed. The good thing is that the jackpot money will be carried forward in the next draw wherein the prize money will be further increased. So there is yet another chance for everyone to try their luck in winning the jackpot.
However, there were at least 57 winners who were able to match five number. In return, all of these 57 winners earned £1,750 each individually. While there were a total of 4,000 players who all had won £ 140 cash money.
