Lottery players were left waiting when a technical glitch in the live Lotto draw meant it could not go ahead on time - but no one was holding a winning ticket and Wednesday's jackpot will be an estimated £15.6 million.

The draw for Saturday's £12.9 million jackpot took place within an hour and in the presence of an independent adjudicator.

A Camelot spokeswoman said: "There was a technical issue with the draw tonight, so the drawmaster signalled they weren't happy for it to go ahead."

The winning Lotto numbers were 49, 50, 34, 43, 03 and 02 and the Bonus Ball was 38.

Set of balls 1 and draw machine Arthur was used.

Nobody matched five numbers plus the bonus, and 70 ticketholders won £1,616 after matching five numbers.

Some 4,841 ticketholders won £150 after matching four numbers, with 133,054 taking home £25, and 1,420,142 matching two numbers to win a lucky dip entry for a future draw.

Nobody won the £350,000 top prize in the Lotto HotPicks game.

The winning Thunderball numbers were 13, 11, 06, 36 and 25. The Thunderball was 02.

Nobody won the £500,000 top prize.
