The midweek UK Lotto draw was held last night, and as the previous three draws have all seen one lucky jackpot winner, there was a brand new jackpot on offer tonight. The jackpot was originally estimated at £2.2 million, but came in at £2,375,918 on the night. The increasing ticket sales and therefore increased jackpots are undoubtedly linked to the beginning of the Christmas period, as more players than usual are chancing their hand at becoming millionaires before the festive season starts! But was anyone lucky enough to scoop that jackpot today? We take a look.
