Midweek Lottery Excitement Looms
Last Updated: Wednesday 29th January 2014, 09:38 am
There was a time when the middle of the week was just the middle of the week, but then some clever bods invented lottery games and now Wednesday is a day on which we can all give ourselves the chance to win a life-changing pile of cash. The midweek Lotto game this evening will offer a jackpot worth around £2.2 million, and if you don’t manage to match the six main numbers required to land that particular prize you could still win one of 50 Lottle Raffle prizes worth £20,000 each!
The EuroMillions game disappointed jackpot hunters last night because no player was able to match all five main numbers (18, 20, 23, 42 and 48) as well as both Lucky Star numbers (02 and 09). That lack of success at the highest level meant that the jackpot rolled for the sixth draw in a row, and the next game this Friday 31 January will offer a jackpot with an estimated value of £58 million, giving players an even bigger prize to pursue.
Although the EuroMillions jackpot itself wasn’t won last night, there were quite a few consolation prizes landed. Five players won £169,309 each by matching the five main numbers and one Lucky Star, and another five players matched the five main numbers only to win £56,436 each. There were 1,903,007 consolation prizes won in total, and one UK ticket won its owner £1,000,000 by matching the Millionaire Raffle number QVG792053.
Those players who won a substantial amount of cash last night in the EuroMillions or Millionaire Raffle game won’t be in any great rush to try their luck again, but the rest of us will no doubt be very keen to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the midweek Lotto and Lotto Raffle draws.
