Lotto Triple-Rollover Landed
Last Updated: Monday 28th May 2012, 10:23 am
The Lotto triple-rollover jackpot was landed by four players on Saturday 26 May, and because the jackpot weighed in at a whopping £13,905,628, each of the winning tickets is now worth £3,476,407! The winning Lotto numbers on Saturday were 02, 06, 07, 15, 25 and 44, with the number 45 being drawn as the Bonus Ball. Whilst the four winners celebrate their new-found multi-millionaire status, the rest of us can now look forward to the prospect of winning the next Lotto jackpot (which will be worth around £2.2 million) this Wednesday.
In addition to the four jackpot-winners, the UK Lotto game on Saturday paid out 784,402 other prizes to players matching three or more main numbers. There were 21 winners at the second-tier prize level, and each of those won £57,433 by matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball. 828 tickets won £910 each by matching five main numbers only and everyone else won either £48 or 10 each by matching four or three main numbers.
The EuroMillions jackpot on Friday 25 May rolled over yet again, so the next jackpot this Tuesday 29 May will be worth around £79 million. One UK player won a very handy £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number HPN691110, but everyone else who managed to win had to settle for a EuroMillions consolation prize. The EuroMillions results on Friday were 12, 22, 35, 46 and 49, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 08.
The biggest consolation prize-winners were the owners of the nine tickets that matched the five main numbers and either one of the Lucky Star numbers, and each of those players won £177,060. There were 11 winning tickets at the third-tier prize level, and each of those won £48,289 by matching the five main numbers only. Over 3.58 million consolation prizes were won overall.
With our roundup of the most recent Lotto and EuroMillions action complete, we can now look forward to the midweek games. Buy your lottery tickets online and if you don’t win the £79 million EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday you just might win the £2.2 million Lotto jackpot on Wednesday!
