The jackpots were brought toppling down on both EuroMillions and Lotto over the weekend as lucky players landed incredible prizes. A EuroMillions jackpot worth £66.4 million was given away on Friday 6th April, before a Lotto ticket holder won £9.5 million 24 hours later.
The EuroMillions numbers drawn on Friday were 1, 29, 33, 45 and 47, with Lucky Stars 4 and 8. The jackpot was won by a player from Switzerland, but it was a great night for participants all over Europe as nearly 2 million prizes were snapped up in total.
The biggest UK winners were the two players who matched the Millionaire Maker codes to net £1 million each. Visit the EuroMillions Results page to see the winning codes, plus a full breakdown of all the prizes won.
The jackpot had previously been rolling for six successive draws, since a player from Portugal won a prize worth £54.6 million on Tuesday 13th March. It will now revert to £14 million for the next draw on Tuesday, but fans of the game can look forward to a special draw on Friday when 13 millionaires will be created, followed by a Superdraw on Friday 20th April.
Just a day after the EuroMillions jackpot was won, a Lotto player got their hands on a multimillion-pound prize after matching the numbers 1, 4, 31, 33, 52 and 55 on Saturday 7th April.
The Bonus Ball was 13 and there were over a million other awards given away across the remaining prize tiers. One ticket holder also won £1 million after matching the raffle code LIME 8780 2545. Go to the Lotto Results page for a list of the other 20 winning Lotto Raffle codes, worth £20,000 each.
The Lotto jackpot has now been won six times since the start of the year, and the latest success ranks as the second-largest prize of 2018 behind the £18.1 million claimed by Dennis and Shirley Banfield on 17th February.
