National Lottery results: Winning Lotto and Thunderball numbers for tonight, Saturday, April 3, 2021 – Gloucestershire Live

It’s the first National Lottery Lotto draw of the month – and it’s a big one.

A huge £12.5m estimated jackpot is up for grabs and it Must Be Won.

The massive prize pot is there because nobody won the big ticket prize in the last five consecutive draws.

Under the Lotto rules, if no ticket gets all six winning numbers there will be a Rolldown, which sees the jackpot split between all other cash winners according to certain percentages.

Becoming a multi-millionaire overnight would make money worries disappear in an instant, and as we all look to life beyond lockdown, it will open up a world of opportunities.

If the giant jackpot eludes you, there is also the Thunderball draw taking place as usual tonight.

Winning numbers for both lotteries will appear below, moments after the draws are made.

Tonight’s winning Lotto numbers: 2, 8, 28, 32, 40, 45. Bonus ball: 5

Winning Thunderball numbers: 11, 19, 23, 28, 33. Thunderball: 14

There are chances to win the Lotto on draws every Saturday and Wednesday.

To play the game, you choose six number from one to 59 or take a lucky dip. It costs £2 per play.

You can buy a ticket on draw days – Saturday and Wednesday – until 7.30pm.

And if the big prize eludes you, there will also be one guaranteed raffle millionaire and 20 raffle winners of £20,000, which would still be nice.

And if you want more games to play, there is also EuroMillions every Tuesday and Friday and the new Set for Life game on Mondays and Thursdays.

While the Thunderball draw also takes place tonight, as well as every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, with a £500,000 top prize.
