SATURDAY'S National Lottery draw didn't see a jackpot win – meaning Wednesday's rollover prize now stands at a whopping £5.4million

The winning numbers for yesterday's Lotto draw, which took place 7.45pm, are 17, 18, 27, 28, 35 and 57, while the Bonus Ball was 51.

But no players won the jackpot – meaning Wednesday's draw will see a double rollover of over £5m up for grabs.

Saturday's winning Thunderball numbers came in at 17, 34, 37, 38, 39 with a Thunder Ball of 13.

Meanwhile, one lucky Brit won the eye-watering Set fof Life jackpot this week, after they picked the winning numbers in Thursday's Set For Life National Lottery draw.

The single winner secured the top prize by correctly matching all the numbers – 42, 39, 47, 31, 08 – as well as the Life Ball which was 10.

    THE LOTTERY WINNERS WHO WON MILLIONS BUT DECIDED TO KEEP WORKING

    Elaine Thompson scooped an eye-watering £2.7million on the lottery – but still gets up in the middle of the night to stack shelves at M&S.

    She even kept it up working 2am shifts throughout the pandemic -even though she’s asthmatic and vulnerable.

    The 65-year-old mum-of-two won big back in 1995, splashing out on racehorses and swanky holidays to Vegas to celebrate. But the grafter from Killingworth, Tyne and Wear, says she keeps working to set a good example for her kids.

    “It’s important that children see you working hard,” Elaine said last year.

    “I absolutely love my job and just because I won the lottery, this didn’t make me want to give up work. It’s all about balance.”

      SHEFFIELD'S LOTTO ANGEL

      Barbara Wragg enjoyed giving her lottery winnings away so much that she worried the pleasure she got from donating was "selfish".

      Along with husband Ray, former hospital worker Barbara won a whopping £7.6million in 2000. The generous couple from Sheffield went on to give away over £5.5million to friends, family, and good causes. Their beneficiaries included cancer charities and hospitals.

      But they also included smaller causes – the Wraggs paid for 250 inner-city kids to attend the pantomime for six years running.

      And they covered the travel costs of 60 veterans to attend a reunion of the Battle of Monte Cassino in Italy.

      The couple always felt that their jackpot was "too much for two people", but spent the remaining cash going on 29 cruises around the world.

      When Barbara sadly passed away aged 77 in May 2018, hundreds of people were expected to attend her funeral.

      To this day, she's known as the Lotto Angel in Sheffield.

      A COUPLE who won a £12.4million jackpot kept their winnings a secret

      When they started gifting some of their winnings to family and friends, they said the operation was something from the TV show "The Secret Millionaire."

      In the reality show, millionaires would go incognito into communities and agree to give away tens of thousands of pounds to people they meet.

      She added: "My husband used to be a hotel manager and he made a spreadsheet and went round to about 30 friends and family’s houses and it was almost like Secret Millionaire.

      "We made a little card and put a cheque in it and gave it to them."

      MAN SCOOPS £680K LOTTO JACKPOT BUT NEARLY MISSES OUT ON PRIZE AFTER THINKING WIN WAS ‘HOAX’ AS WIFE ‘DIDN’T BELIEVE HIM’

      The lucky winner, from Darwin, almost didn't collect the money after being left in total disbelief when he saw all six of his numbers on the lottery app.

      "Usually, I get an email straight after the draw that tells me how close I am to winning division one," the winner told Daily Mail Australia.

      "But this time, I didn't, so when I woke up on Sunday morning, I logged into The Lott app and I saw I had all six numbers.

      "I thought 'well, that's strange' and then I saw the prize amount, and I thought it must be some kind of hoax."

      He was one of five winning entries in the TattsLotto draw with each person taking home £680,000 ($1,304,946.92).

        LOTTERY WINNER ADRIAN BAYFORD QUITS SCOTLAND AS HE MISSED PASTIES AND THE PUB

        The ex-postie, 49, had relocated north of the border, having abandoned his £12million English country estate after a string of failed romances.

        But pals say the friendly millionaire — who scooped £148million in 2012 — got fed up with the fancy Scottish pies and neeps and tatties.

        The final straw came when lockdown ended and the dad-of-two realised how much he was missing English pubs — with Scottish drinking focused on bars and hotels.

        Friends said he was so bored without a decent village boozer he took up archery.

        Pals thought his country pile in Cambridgeshire had been sold, when in fact he had taken it off the market and moved back in.

        A friend said: “It’s well known how much Adrian loves his Cornish pasties — after all, he used to get them delivered to his mansion.

        "Of course, he could get them delivered to Scotland but it’s not the same as being out and having a fresh one from the baker’s.”

        “Everyone remembers their midwife — you may not always remember their name, but you always remember the experience.”
