Single jackpot winner poised to break Lotto record

A new UK lottery record could be set on Wednesday 9th December. With an estimated £22.6M jackpot up for grabs a single winner could become the biggest Lotto winner in history.

The largest Lotto jackpot ever won is £22.5M scooped by a couple of work colleagues from Hastings in 1995. Mark Gardiner and Paul Maddison worked together running a double glazing business when their six numbers came up. Iris Jeffery from Belfast became the largest individual Lotto winner in 2004 when she won £20.1M.

If a single ticket holder banks the entire jackpot on Wednesday they will immediately set a new national Lotto record. A win of that proportion would see any winner able to change their own life and that of the family and friends around them.
