More shares on the Lotto
Last Updated: Sunday 20th March 2011, 11:43 am
It was yet another share on the UK Lotto as two players match all six numbers on the UK Lotto draw, each collecting over £2.5 million each. Last night’s Lotto exceeded the £4.4 million estimated jackpot, hitting just over £5 million, and produced two lottery prizes, each life-changing jackpots. In all, over £14 million prizes are to be paid out in lottery prizes in total from last night's draw.
Arthur was the lottery machine used for last night’s draw, last seen last Saturday, with set of balls number 7 used for the draw. In addition to the two jackpot winners, another six players matched five numbers and the bonus, each collecting over £250,000. These are just the biggest winners of the draw, but there were plenty of smaller winners too, with a total of £14.1 million paid out in prize money.
The midweek Lotto jackpot will now be an estimated £2.4 million but if that doesn’t set your world on fire, there is the Euromillions jackpot to look forward to on Friday evening. That draw has just rolled over for the sixth time, which means that next Friday’s jackpot is worth an estimated £117 million, a staggering amount of cash by anyone’s standards, so don’t forget to buy lottery tickets for that draw.
You can check last night’s full result on our lottery results page, where you’ll also find all the other lottery results including the Lotto Plus 5 numbers and Euromillions Lottery results and winners. Good luck in your draws this week!
