Lotto Jackpot Won Five Times Over
Last Updated: Monday 2nd July 2012, 10:20 am
The final Lotto jackpot of June was landed by not one or two but five winning tickets. Fortunately the jackpot had rolled over from the midweek draw last Wednesday, so it was worth £6,764,295, which was enough to give each winning ticket a millionaire-making value of £1,352,859. The Lotto results for Saturday 30 June were 01, 18, 19, 24, 30 and 38, with the number 41 being selected as the Bonus Ball. Now that the jackpot has been landed (five times over!) the next Lotto jackpot this Wednesday will be worth around £2.2 million.
There were 549,453 other winning tickets in the Saturday Lotto game. 521,820 of those tickets landed the smallest consolation prize of £10 by matching three main numbers, 27,160 tickets matched four main numbers to win £66 each and 461 tickets matched five main numbers to win £1,774 each. The biggest consolation prizes of all went to the owners of the eight tickets that matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball, and each of those tickets won £163,600.
Coincidentally, the Health Lottery game on Saturday also saw five tickets match all of the numbers (01, 06, 13, 19 and 23) to win the top prize of £100,000 each. More than 15,200 other players matched four or three numbers to win £500 or £50 each.
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Friday 29 June were 14, 17, 28, 29 and 39, and the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 11. The jackpot was worth £26.9 million but no ticket matched all of the numbers required to win it, so there will be a triple-rollover jackpot of around £32 million in the midweek Lotto game this Wednesday.
Although the jackpot eluded players everywhere, five EuroMillions tickets matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £242,313 each. Another 19 tickets won a third-tier prize of £21,255 each by matching five main numbers only, and more than 2.95 million other tickets won prizes at the fourth-tier and below. The Millionaire Raffle number on Friday was STQ827960, so the EuroMillions ticket showing that number is now worth £1 million.
As you can see, there were plenty of lottery prizes won last Friday and Saturday, and we expect that plenty more will be won this week. Buy your lottery tickets online for the £32 million EuroMillions game on Tuesday and for the £2.2 million Lotto game on Wednesday, and good luck with your numbers!
