A National Lottery player has scooped a prize worth £3.8 million.

Saturday's winning numbers are: 13, 49, 38, 39, 53, 56 and the bonus number is 59, with players urged to check their tickets.

Camelot's Andy Carter, Senior Winners' Advisor at The National Lottery, said: "Tonight's fabulous £3.8m Lotto jackpot has been won by a single ticketholder – out third winner in a week, after Wednesday's £5.4m jackpot was shared between two lucky ticketholders.

"Players are being urged to check their tickets online via the National Lottery app or website, or in their local shop, and to give us a call as soon as possible to claim this massive prize.

"National Lottery players make a huge difference to National Lottery Good Causes across the country raising, on average, around £30m every week.

"Thanks to National Lottery players, over £800m has been distributed to date across the UK to help tackle the impact of coronavirus, including more than £400m to support the most vulnerable in our communities."

Wednesday's estimated Lotto jackpot is a whopping £2 million.

On Friday, one lucky ticketholder bagged a record EuroMillions jackpot of €200 million (£175m).

If the ticket, which was bought in France, is held by a single player, they will become the biggest winner in the history of the European lottery.

The French player matched all five main numbers and the two Lucky Stars.

Next Tuesday's EuroMillions jackpot will now be £15m.
