Low Lotto Sales After Civil Unrest

It’s Thursday and that of course means it’s time for last night’s UK Lotto results. Yesterday it was reported that a jackpot of around £2.4 million would be up for grabs last night, but it seems there were low Lotto sales after the civil unrest in the UK, as the jackpot came in at £1.8 million. However, every cloud has a silver lining, and that’s certainly the case for the three lucky players who matched all the winning numbers to share the jackpot!
With a jackpot of just over £1.8 million, and three jackpot winners, that does mean that there were no millionaires created. That doesn’t mean there weren’t life changing amounts of cash won, each jackpot winner collects over £600,000 and there were lots more winners besides.
As just three players also matched the 5+1 prize, it meant prize winners for the second tier picked up a larger than average £188,538, add this to the smaller tier prizes and over £7.1 million was paid out in last night’s UK Lotto draw to 382,067 winners around the UK.
Hopefully now the streets of the UK are settling back down to normal, and everyone seems to have the kettle on, maybe sales will be a little more brisk at the weekend. Tomorrow there’s a Euromillions triple rollover jackpot up for grabs, estimated at £40 million and then on Saturday evening, it’s the UK Lotto and that jackpot should get a little closer to the estimated £4.4 million!
