The Lotto will rollover for the first time this month after no players matched all six numbers correctly from last night’s draw, which took place on Wednesday, 11th July 2012. The winning numbers were 12, 19, 28, 29, 38, 49 and the bonus ball was 30.

Despite no jackpot winners, there was however one lucky winner who matched five numbers and the bonus ball, scooping a cool £673,406. Just 245 players matched five balls, compared to 429 the previous week, who netted a respectable £1,717 each.
Statistics fans may be interested to know that the machine used was Guinevere, which has coincidentally been the machine used in the last three rollover scenarios. The set of balls number 1 was used, which is the first time in eight weeks they have made an appearance.
Of the winning numbers, the only one of note was 38, which is now officially the most commonly occurring Lotto number, having occurred now 239 times, according to statistics. Of the remaining numbers, 12, 19 and 29 have occurred 206, 207 and 208 times respectively, whilst 28 and 49 have each appeared slightly more frequently, at 212 and 214 times. Number 30 made its 5th appearance as the bonus, and its 226th appearance overall.
So, with the jackpot rolling over to Saturday’s draw now expected to reach an impressive £6.4 million, it is likely that ticket sales will be high with players all jostling to be within a chance of getting a slice of that pie.
