BRITS missed out on the chance of scooping a HUGE £15m after Saturday's Lotto draw saw no jackpot winner.

Saturday's Lotto numbers were 19, 32, 44, 45, 52, 53 and the Bonus ball was 12.

And the Thunderball draw results that day were 13, 7, 17, 19 and 35, with a Thunderball of 11.

Meanwhile, Brits will again have a chance to play Set For Life on Monday. ]

The top prize? A life changing £10,000 every month for the next 30 years.

You can buy Lotto tickets online every day from 6am until 11pm. But remember, to play on a draw day, you'll need to buy your ticket before 7.30pm.

    EXPLAINED: WHAT HAPPENS TO EUROMILLIONS PRIZE MONEY IF NO ONE CLAIMS IT?

    The National Lottery have said: “Our players change the lives of individuals as well as communities by raising, on average, over £33 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.”

    ‘I’M GLAD I DIDN’T GET THE £3M’

    Martyn and Kay Tott got the shock of their lives when they realised they’d won £3million back in 2001 – six months after buying the ticket.

    By the time they saw an appeal for the winner to come forward, they couldn’t find the ticket.

    After 45 agonising days of deliberating, Camelot told the devastated couple that they weren’t going to receive the cash.

    “Having that money taken away was torture,” Martyn told the Mail on Sunday.

    “For a long time I lost sight of who I was and what I believed in. But I can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t get the £3million now.

    “There is no guarantee it would have brought me happiness.”

    WHAT IS A ROLL DOWN AND HOW MUCH IS WEDNESDAY’S LOTTO JACKPOT?

    Whenever there’s a Lotto Must Be Won draw and no one wins the jackpot by matching 6 main numbers, there’s a Rolldown.

    This means the jackpot is shared across other prize tiers where players match 2 or more main numbers, so thousands can expect to win a boosted cash prize.

      Donna previously revealed how Gareth, who told her he was separated, splurged on taking her to glitzy events and luxury holidays.

      She claimed he told her their relationship had to be kept secret as he didn't want to give his wife ammunition if they were to divorce.

      But Catherine spotted the pair on TV at an Anthony Joshua fight in 2017 and they separated later that year.

      Donna later said she felt "wounded" when the relationship ended and Gareth stopped talking to her.

      She was previously slapped with an injunction banning her from spilling the beans in her memoir.

      GRAN ESCAPES JAIL AFTER STEALING £33,000 OF LOTTO SCRATCHCARDS FROM CORNER SHOP

      A GRAN stole £33,000 worth of Lotto scratchcards from a corner shop while working behind the till, a court heard today.

      Trusted shop assistant Sheila Hancock, 60, took thousands of cards from the display without paying for them.

      And if she saw it was a winning card after scratching off the silver foil she took the prize money out of the till, it was said.

      Puzzled owner Virajkumar Patel couldn't understand why his busy store wasn't making a profit despite staying open throughout the pandemic.

      So he checked CCTV and was horrified when he saw Hancock repeatedly helping herself to cards and winnings. York crown court heard she had become addicted to the “easy” gambling and got away with the deceit from January 2020 until April of this year.

      WHICH STAR SIGN MOST LIKELY TO PICK THE RIGHT WINNING NUMBERS?

      The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Which sign is most likely to win the lottery? Well, it’s good news if you’re born in February or March.

      According to research from Lott and MailOnline, dreamy Pisces is the luckiest sign of the zodiac when it comes to winning the lottery.

      The data, which was based on those winning the top lottery jackpot, found that 11.6% of the winners were Pisces – meaning, on average, they were more likely to pick the golden ticket.

      Go-with the-flow Pisces will stumble upon extraordinarily lucky breaks and often find themselves effortlessly attracting most things on their wish list.

      So, Pisces, if you’re reading this maybe you should get down to the shops and buy a lottery ticket.

        CALLIE ROGERS CAMPAIGNING TO RAISE LEGAL AGE LIMIT TO PLAY THE LOTTERY

        Callie is now campaigning for the government to raise the age limit for the National Lottery.

        Gambling is now more popular among children than skateboarding and campaigners believe an age limit of 16 entices young people into a habit of betting.

        Callie feels she was too young to cope with the pressure and wants to stop other kids going through the same problems she faced.

        She told the Mirror: “You are only a 16, with all that responsibility. At that age, you can get the best advice ever. But you are not in a position to listen. I was too young.

        “I suffer from such bad anxiety when I am going to meet new people. It preys on my mind, what a new partner’s family will think of me, or even new friends. I still get abuse just because of who I am.”

        WOMAN WHO BOUGHT HER BOYFRIEND A WINNING LOTTERY TICKET DIVIDES THE WEB AS SHE ASKS FOR SOME OF THE PRIZE MONEY

        The woman had given her partner a National Lottery scratchcard for Christmas which ended up winning him £500. 

        The dilemma was shared to the MoneySavingExpert Instagram account by a sibling of the brother.

        They said that her brother should get to keep all of the money as the scratchcard was a gift. 

        The sibling wrote: “Should my brother share his lottery winnings? 

        “My brother’s girlfriend gave him a National Lottery scratchcard as a Christmas gift, and he won £500.”

        Many people said he should pocket the money as the card then belonged to him. 

        One said: “It’s his and should be under no obligation to share it with anyone.”

        WHERE DOES THE MONEY RAISED BY THE NATIONAL LOTTERY GO

        In the year ending 31 March 2021, the funds were shared as follows:

        • Health, education, environment and charitable causes – 40%
        • Sport – 20%
        • Arts – 20%
        • Heritage – 20%

          HOW DOES THE NATIONAL LOTTERY WORK?

          The National Lottery raises money to go to many ‘good causes’ and have helped give out numerous grants to those that need it most.

          On their website they state: “We retain around just 1% of revenue in profit, while around 95% of total revenue goes back to winners and society. More so, we run one of the most cost-efficient major lotteries in Europe, with around 4% of total revenue spent on operating costs.

          “To date, National Lottery players have helped to raise over £43 billion for Good Causes, with more than 635,000 individual awards made across the UK – the equivalent of more than 225 lottery grants in every UK postcode district.”

          WE WON THE LOTTERY THEN GAVE WINNINGS AWAY BY MAKING PALS RICH

          A £115million jackpot is probably enough to not just change your life, but the lives of everyone you’ve ever cared about too.

          Which is probably why Frances and Patrick Connolly decided to give over half of their winnings to 175 people.

          “We won £114,969,775.70 and we have given away more than half,” Frances said last year.

          “That’s £60million-worth of love. And the thing that makes me even happier is that every single person we gave money to has passed some of it on to other people. I can’t think of a day since winning the Lottery that I haven’t smiled.”
