The winning Thunderball numbers are:
4 – 7 – 18 – 26 – 31 – 1 (Thunderball)
The most recent draw on Saturday, January 8, had a jackpot of over £7 million, but that was increased by over £2 million for Wednesday's draw.
Two winners were lucky enough to match five numbers and the bonus ball, earning them both a prize of £1 million each.
However, no ticket was lucky enough to win Saturday’s jackpot amount.
The biggest Lotto win recorded was in 2016 when a single winning ticket handed out a jackpot of £35 million to an anonymous player.
A single ticket drawn on New Year's Eve of 2016 was also responsible for winning £26.4 million.
The UK National Lottery was first drawn on November 19, 1994, and has continued to be a tradition ever since.
Half of all the money raised by ticket costs goes into the prize fund, with 28 per cent being donated to various good causes, 12 per cent to the Government as duty and 5 per cent to retailers.
The final 5 per cent has been used to operate the lottery throughout its history.
