Single Ticket Scoops Lotto Jackpot
Last Updated: Monday 14th May 2012, 10:50 am
A Lotto jackpot worth £3,634,865 was scooped by a single ticket in the game on Saturday, giving the owner of that ticket over three-and-a-half million reasons to celebrate. The Lotto results that were responsible for the win were 01, 05, 18, 21, 23 and 33, and the Bonus Ball was 20. Whether this latest Lotto winner will choose to go public or opt to remain anonymous is something that only time will tell, but either way we congratulate them on their win and wish them lots of happiness as they go about spending their new-found wealth!
14 tickets matched five main Lotto numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second-tier consolation prize of £79,887 each. 602 tickets won £1,161 each after matching five main numbers only, and another 625,349 tickets matched either four or three main numbers to win £45 or £10 each, respectively. That brought the total number of Lotto prizes won on Saturday to 625,966.
The next Lotto jackpot this Wednesday will be worth around £2.2 million, but before we get to that we have a truly massive EuroMillions jackpot of around £41 million to play for on Tuesday 15 May. That’s right, the jackpot in the EuroMillions game on Friday 11 May rolled over for the fourth draw running, so the midweek draw this week is even more exciting than it was last time around!
Seven tickets came very close to winning the EuroMillions jackpot last Friday, and matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win £177,783 each. Another nine tickets won £46,092 each by matching five main numbers only, and the total number of EuroMillions prizes won was 2,812,712. One player won £1,000,000 by matching the Millionaire Raffle number CMS978848.
As well as Tuesday’s EuroMillions jackpot of £41 million and Wednesday’s Lotto jackpot of £2.2 million, lottery players in the UK also have that extra-special UK EuroMillions Super Raffle to look forward to this Friday 18 May. In other words, it promises to be another exciting week from start to finish, so grab your lottery tickets online today and good luck!
