January 2021 has taken a turn from the gloom of 2020 for 38 lucky Lotto UK players. What a way to start a year by winning the lottery with prizes of £1 million or more.

Lotto UK welcomed 10 new millionaires in January 2021, including 2 major jackpot winners.

There were 5 x £1 million winners in the lotto draw on 9th January. Malcolm Haines, the 49-year-old accountant from Reading, shared he was flabbergasted when he realised he’d won.

Another 9th January winner was Terri Picton-Clark, a champion ballroom dancer, who waltzed around her living room, when she learned of her winfall. Terri is looking forward to getting a new kitchen, plans to visit Antarctica and take grandkids skiing. She also wants to spoil herself with a new dress and shoes for her ballroom dancing.

EuroMillions was lucky for 11 UK players. 10 winners scored £1 million each in the 1st January draw. While one super-lucky player won a staggering £39.8 million!


For some the win wasn’t as big, but the joy was no less! Martin Gilbey from Northampton said he certainly won’t forget January 2021. He was ‘shook up’ at the news that he won almost £120,000 on a EuroMillions ticket in the 8th January draw.

Set For Life has made the year – or 30! – for a lucky player on 18th January. Imagine how winning £10,000 a month for 30 years would make you feel!

There were also 4 lucky Thunderball winners, who took home the top prize of £500,000 each.

It wouldn’t be Lotto UK without the Instant Win Games! There were 4 top prize winners, who pocketed more than £50,000, and a lucky player who won £500,000.

Scratchcard winners were plenty in January also. 22 in total – 21 of them won the major prize, including 3 prizes of £1 million, 2 prizes totally £1.2 million and 1 prize of £2 million. There was also 1 high tier Triple Jackpot winner of £250,000.
