- The draw used ball set B in the Arthur machine and the average main Lotto prize was £17.06.
One in every 56.1 main Lotto tickets won a prize (=1.78% of players).
- This was the 1st Super Draw and the jackpot pool was a guaranteed £10,000,000.
- If all 13,983,816 ticket combinations were additionally purchased for the main Lotto game, they would have made a profit of £570,986.
- The prior history of the main Lotto jackpot ticket included no wins.
- The jackpot pool prize money of £10m that wasn't won in
this lottery will be added to the total prize fund of
- I have confirmed the individual prize amounts and winners by phoning the

program suite in
- Ignoring the artificially rounded jackpot (which wasn't won anyway),

- The Sun, ITV's teletext and Camelot claim there was a total of
£25,867,440 prize money, but this is the strange sum of the actual
prize money given out (£17.5m) plus the jackpot amount without
the £1.6m top-up (i.e. £8.4m).
- Another set of low numbers, with only one above the "magic" 31 boundary.
- Three main numbers (21,23 and 25) appeared in the same playslip
row - this is the first time it has happened.
- The individual 5+bonus prizes were the largest so far.
- ITV's teletext page 123 incorrectly stated that there were
56,339 four match winners - out by 10,000 ! Camelot discovered this,
faxed them and it was fixed (to 46,339) on Tuesday morning.
- Despite having 2 tickets for the first ever Super Draw,
I only got one number (on my first ticket) out of the 12 :-(.
- £661,106 of unclaimed prizes (3.78% of the total prize pool) from this week expired at 11.00pm BST on Thursday 6th July 1995 and have been added to the National Lottery Distribution Fund.
