With Christmas just around the corner lottery players have been speculating what special Christmas Lottery draws are going to take place this year, and it seems that the new Lotto Raffle game from the National Lottery will be celebrating the festive season by boosting the amount of winners of £20,000 each to a massive 500!
Although there has been no word on the National Lottery’s website about this yet posters can already been seen in authorised retailers, announcing that on Christmas Day the Lotto draw will guarantee 500 Lotto Raffle winners £20,000 each in the Christmas Lotto Raffle. It remains to be seen whether the Lotto jackpot will also be boosted for the Christmas or New Year’s Day draw. To find out more about the Lotto Christmas Raffle draw visit www.lottery.co.uk
This is the first year the Lotto has celebrated Christmas with a special one off draw as usually the EuroMillions is the main lottery draw over Christmas, which in previous years has boosted the amount of UK Millionaire Raffle winners over the festive season. Starting in December 2010, the following special Christmas EuroMillions draws have taken place:
