Spring loaded: National Lottery makes 31 new millionaires in March

It might have been a somewhat soggy start to Spring, but the frequent rain won’t have dampened the spirits of the lucky players who became our newest millionaires. A total of 31 National Lottery players added £1Million (or more) to their bank balances in March 2024 – that’s a brand new millionaire for every day of the month!

Things got off to a cracking start when one of our players won an incredible £15Million Lotto jackpot in the 'Must Be Won' event on 2nd March. Add to that another 14 players who became Lotto millionaires in the third month of 2024 and you have to say Spring was well and truly sprung.

EuroMillions played its part – the game’s Millionaire Maker draws saw 9 lucky players winning six-digit prizes in March.

One of those EuroMillions winners – Marlyn Anderson from Stirling – told us her £1Million prize could not have come at a better time. Her husband, Ian, has a terminal illness, so the incredible windfall will ensure he enjoys the best quality of life in the time he has left. Read Marlyn and Ian’s moving story here.

Have you seen our exciting new Set For Life campaign 'Win On Repeat'? If not, you can get a taste of it here. A pair of lucky players experienced the life-changing feeling of a big Set For Life prize in March, each winning the game’s top prize of £10,000 every month for 30 years.

We met Joanne Jobson, a devoted Abba fan who is in the ‘Money, Money, Money’ after winning the top Set For Life prize. The 51-year-old carer from Hartlepool said she woke from a night shift and “jumped out of bed” after learning she’d won the Set For Life jackpot.

Thunderball came to the party in March with two lucky players winning the game’s top prize of £500,000.

Meanwhile, six Instant Win Game players won prizes of £50,000 or more in March. Three of them won prizes of £1Million each.

March was also a good month for Scratchcards. One lucky player scratched off a prize of £1Million, while another player won £2Million!
