However, it is eight neighbours in Sunningdale Drive who have the most to celebrate as theirs was the full winning postcode.
Seven of them have won a cheque for over £160,000 each with the eighth receiving double for a prize of over £330,000 due to playing with two tickets.
Players with a single ticket in the winning sector will pick up around £2,600 and those with two tickets collecting over £5,000.
Players with three tickets have won almost £8,000 and those with four tickets are set to pocket over £10,000.
The results for March’s draw were broadcast via a Facebook Live, in which People's Postcode Lottery presenter Judie McCourt said: “What a great result for Washington."
It was also confirmed during the broadcast that the Postcode Lottery team would not be able to deliver checks in person due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Presenter Judie added: “Myself and the other Postcode Lottery ambassadors will still be celebrating the win on social media.
“I'd love to see our winners get involved by sharing selfies of them with their cheques and hopefully hearing about how they plan to spend the money."
