Today’s winning numbers for the National Lottery’s Lotto and Thunderball draws are soon to be revealed. Are you looking to clear your bills, pay your mortgage or splash the cash on a well-deserved holiday?

Today could be your lucky day if you are in tonight’s triple rollover Lotto draw, which has a jackpot prize of £8.5million. For £2 a ticket, Lotto players need to pick six numbers from 1-59, and match at least two main numbers to win a prize.

For a chance to win up to £500k in the Thunderball, players wanting to test their luck had to pick five numbers from 1-39, and a Thunderball from 1-14. Lucky Dip was also available for players to choose randomly selected numbers.

Tonight’s Lotto results will be announced at 8pm. The winning Thunderball numbers will then be drawn at 8.15pm.

The biggest ever Lotto winner was created in April 2016 when an anonymous player banked £35m. In January 2016, two ticket-holders walked away with £33m each.

Before that, a main Lotto game jackpot of £42,008,610 was drawn in January 1996 and split between three anonymous winners, with each being awarded £14,002,870. A single ticket also won £26.4m on the New Year’s Eve Lotto back in 2016.

The UK National Lottery was first drawn on November 19, 1994. Half of all money spent by players goes to the prize fund, with 28% to good causes, 12% to the Government as duty and 5% to retailers. The final 5% has operated the lottery throughout its history.
