A player matched all six main numbers to win the £3,965,089 jackpot, after no one took home the top prize on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, outgoing UK national lottery operator Camelot revealed a drop in ticket and instant game sales as it flagged signs players had been ‘tightening their belts’ over the soaring cost of the game. life.

Camelot, which recently took legal action against the Gambling Commission after losing the lottery’s next license to compete with Allwyn, saw sales fall by 3% or £283.2m to £8.1bn. pounds sterling as of March 31.

In March, Camelot lost the license to operate the lottery from 2024 after 30 years of operating the game.
