Midweek Lotto Looks Appealing
Last Updated: Wednesday 7th September 2011, 09:22 am
The midweek Lotto game looks particularly appealing this week after the latest batch of EuroMillions results on Tuesday 6 September caused the jackpot to roll over yet again. EuroMillions players will now have an estimated jackpot of £126 million to play for this Friday, but before that we have a £6.6 million Lotto jackpot to play for this evening (Wednesday 7 September). Considering the fact that the Lotto jackpot is more than eight times easier to win than the one offered by the EuroMillions game, we are hopeful that the Lotto could well provide the jackpot-winning result that everyone is currently chasing.
The EuroMillions results which brought about the eleventh rollover in a row last night were 35, 42, 47, 48 and 50, with 08 and 09 being drawn as the Lucky Stars. All of those numbers were at the upper end of their respective ranges, so anyone who had included even one number at the opposite end of the main number or Lucky Star range would have been scuppered as far as winning the jackpot was concerned.
The Millionaire Raffle number SLW245268 saved the day on Tuesday for one aspiring millionaire in the UK, but as far as the EuroMillions game itself was concerned, the best anyone could do was win a second-tier prize by matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star. Six players did just that and won £196,606 as a result. Another ten players matched the five main numbers only to win £39,321 each, and more than 2.39 million consolation prizes were won in total.
Players who are holding onto their dream of winning themselves millionaire status will of course be very likely to have a go at the next EuroMillions jackpot this Friday, but the Lotto jackpot tonight could well make someone a multi-millionaire even sooner. Odds of 1 in 13.9 million are a lot better than odds of 1 in 116.5 million, so it will be interesting to see if someone manages to win the estimated £6.6 million that is up for grabs. Buy your lottery tickets online today and the winner of tonight’s midweek Lotto jackpot could be you!
