Three share the Saturday Lotto
Last Updated: Sunday 15th August 2010, 10:53 am
After three Euromillions winners on Friday evening, last night three players shared the Saturday UK Lotto jackpot from the National Lottery. The jackpot wasn’t quite the £12 million up for grabs in Friday’s Euromillions draw but there was enough to make all three winners instant lottery millionaires! The jackpot rolled in at £4.3 million and each of the three lottery winners will collect £1,460,850 each after matching all six numbers on the main National Lottery draw.
Lottery machine Merlin made yet another appearance for the lottery draw and really does seem to be the ‘hot’ lotto machine right now. Set of balls number 3 was also used for the draw, no seen since the £11.1 million lottery rollover on 4th August. It won’t be a rollover this time however, as three lucky lottery players have successfully matched all the winning numbers.

In other weekend lottery news, the National Lottery have announced that the three lucky lottery winners from Friday’s Euromillions Lottery draw came from France, Spain and Portugal and each of them will collect around €5 million in lottery winnings.
The next UK Lotto draw will be held on Wednesday evening and the estimated jackpot for that draw is £2.4 million, following that is the Euromillions draw on Friday evening with an estimated £12 million jackpot. Good luck if you’re playing the lottery this week!
