The winning numbers drawn in the UK National Lottery Lotto drawing held on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, were 1, 4, 5, 7, 18, and 47. The Bonus Ball was 6, and one lucky player or syndicate certainly got October off to a good start when they matched all 6 winning numbers and scooped the £1,265,065 jackpot.
One lucky player also scooped a sizeable second tier prize of £100,976 for matching 5 main numbers and the bonus ball.
There were 226 third tier winners so the £85,654 prize pool didn’t stretch very far. Each player won just £379.
A further £5,213,806 was distributed in smaller prizes to lower tier winners.
UK National Lottery Lotto drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The next drawing is on Saturday, October 4, 2014. The estimated jackpot is £4.1 million.
