National Lottery Announce Quadruple Rollover Draw

Saturday's (UK) National Lottery draw will be a quadruple rollover with an estimated jackpot of £13.8 million. It is rare for lottery jackpots to rollover more than three times, and Saturday's draw is only the second quadruple rollover since the National Lottery began in 1994.

Lottery operators, Camelot, originally only allowed the jackpot to rollover for a maximum of three times, but changed the rules, in 2011, to allow a fourth rollover draw. The first quadruple rollover took place on Saturday, September 29, 2012, and the £19.5 million jackpot was shared by five lucky winners.
