Five lucky lottery players
Last Updated: Sunday 25th April 2010, 11:07 am
As jackpot shares go, last night’s was a pretty big one as no less than five players matched all six winning numbers to scoop last night’s UK Lotto jackpot. However, with the jackpot at £4.5 million that means the Lotto did not create a single millionaire! Check the Lotto results now to see if you were one of the lucky winners or read on for all the news.
You can check the lottery numbers from last night’s draw on our lottery results page, maybe you were one of the five lucky jackpot winners. The five-way share means that each lottery jackpot winner will collect £880,156, not quite a million with this big share.
Another seven players matched five of the main balls and the bonus ball and each of those players wins £193,440. The total in prize money given away in the draw was over £14 million, although no millionaires were created.
The machine used for last night’s UK Lotto draw was Guinevere, set of balls numbers four, the machine and the balls were certainly lucky for the winners, although big shares on the UK Lotto are becoming more prevalent.
The next UK Lotto draw will be held on Wednesday evening and the estimated jackpot for that is £2.5 million, let’s hope that draw isn’t shared five ways or it will mean a very small jackpot for lottery winners. You can buy lottery tickets for that draw right now and be in with a chance at becoming the next UK Lotto winner.
