Lotto Monday Spoiler additional draw
On Saturday 29th April 2006, Camelot decided to seemingly
spoil the forthcoming launch of the "Monday draw" (which will
actually have two draws that your ticket enters into each Monday)
that is run by their rivals, Chariot.
It involved one
additional 6 from 49 (no bonus ball) draw and
anyone buying a ticket for that
Saturday's main "Lotto" draw (including subscribers)
had their 6 numbers also automatically entered into that draw at
no additional cost (so £1 bought an entry into two draws).
The additional draw only had one prize: a £5m jackpot, which
will be shared if more than one person wins the jackpot.
Main Lotto Draw:
Information for this draw can be found separately
but note that 36,585,995 tickets were entered into both this draw and
the additional draw below.
Winning numbers drawn at 8.25pm BST on Saturday 29th April 2006:
Sorted order: 4 10 23 36 37 49
Drawn order: 37 36 49 23 4 10
Machine: Topaz, Ball set: 2
Number of jackpot winners: 3 (£1,666,667 each - ?? claimed)
- I matched nothing on either of my two tickets
in the addditional draw.
- You should look elsewhere for info on Lotto's debut and
its three additional draws.
- The additional draw is not factored into any of the
main Lotto Numerical Analysis because the draw
is not the same format (no bonus ball).
