Double Rollover for Uk National LotteryMonday September 27th 2010
Players in the UK normally have to rely on the EuroMillions for the chance to play for a big lottery jackpot but a double rollover for the UK National Lottery means that on Wednesday there is an amazing £10.2 million up for grabs. This is not a common occurrence for the UK National Lottery these days although the last time this happened there was a double rollover jackpot of just over £11 million to play for on 4th August, which wasn’t all that long ago. However, this time around the National Lottery doesn’t appear to have generated the same interest.
Of course Christmas is not that far away now, and it inevitable that people are going to curb their spending in the run up to the festive season. This jackpot from the National Lottery could be enough to encourage people to invest in a couple of Lottery tickets for the Wednesday night draw this week.
The National Lottery will only allow the jackpot to roll over three times, after which point if there is no jackpot winner in the next draw, the prize is shared between those who matched the most numbers. So if no winner is produced on Wednesday and the lottery jackpot rolls over for a third time, this will be the final time you will have to match all of the numbers drawn to be guaranteed a share of the jackpot.
In all, UK lottery players are in for a real treat this week as not only have they got the £10.2 million jackpot to play for on the National Lottery but Friday also sees an £82 million Mega Jackpot Draw taking place for the EuroMillions, so there are plenty of reasons to buy lotto tickets these games this week.
