hmm so what is your bonus ball then can it be any?

you choose 6 numbers, then they draw 6 main numbers. the bonus ball is then drawn seperately, obviously you want all the 6 main numbers, the bonus ball only comes into effect if you have five of the main numbers, then if your 6th ball is the bonus ball you get the 2nd biggest prize

Won £1200 odd for 5 numbers not long after it started and the mother in law got 5 numbers last year and won £1000.

My ex boss ( Roofing contractor ) won 7 million and gave most of it away,He even hired a plane and filled it with kids and took them to Spain,I always new he was a nice guy but i dont think anyone has done this much for others,Puts these celebrities charity work to shame,
Lottery couple's £6m charity gift
BBC NEWS, December 12, 2006. Read the full story.

A couple from Sheffield who won £7.6m on the lottery in 2000 have given away £6m of their fortune.

Ray and Barbara Wragg have made countless donations to charity and spent money on family and friends since scooping the jackpot six years ago.

Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield, which specialises in cancer treatment, and Sheffield Children's Hospital have been the main beneficiaries.

Mrs Wragg said: "We decided that £7.6m was too much for two people."

Tariq Chowdhury, from Weston Park Hospital, said the couple's donations to the hospital's teenage cancer unit had "made a good hospital a great hospital".

Mr Wragg said: "We still play the lottery because we would like to get some more scanners for Weston Park and the Sheffield Children's Hospital.

"If and when we do win again – get ready charities!"

Thanks they really are a nice couple who deserved it for themselves but had even more fun giving it away,
quote from BBC
In 2003 the couple came to the aid of a group of Second World War veterans whose trip to honour their fallen comrades was in jeopardy.

They paid for 50 war heroes to visit Italy in May 2004 for the 60th anniversary of the battle of Monte Cassino after they failed to secure £12,500 in lottery funding.
