UK Lotto players have enjoyed a winning streak with players matching all the winning numbers in the last four UK Lotto draw.

This is a blessing to the lottery players as the winning numbers were drawn from a limited pool of numbers. Additionally, it was a double blessing for players who choose their ticket numbers based on their birthdays. This is because birth dates fall below 31.
