Lanarkshire town scoops record £7.9m jackpot for popular Postcode Lottery

The Money Manna is the largest single pot awarded in Scotland in the history of the lottery. Area winners have already been told they have each taken home a minimum of £1,000, but the total prize money won’t be revealed until Saturday.

The prize pot will be split between lottery players in the winning sector ML2 0. When the full winning postcode is revealed on Saturday, players in one street will receive the biggest prizes and can expect to win a sum at six digits.

Area winners have been invited to an exclusive event where they will receive their golden envelopes and learn how much they each won. People’s Postcode Lottery Ambassador Judie McCourt said, “I’m so excited for our Wishaw winners and can’t wait to bring them this fantastic news. I’m sure they’ll all be excited for Saturday, and I think this surprise will make their weekend.
