Two share midweek rollover
Last Updated: Thursday 24th February 2011, 10:44 am
Last night’s Lotto draw was an exciting affair, especially as there was a rollover jackpot up for grabs that reached £7.6 million. Lottery players were out in force and in the event two tickets shared the midweek rollover, each collecting over £3.8 million. If you haven’t checked your lottery tickets then take a look at the lottery results right now and see how many numbers you matched in the draw. There was over £13 million in prizes given away in total, here’s the breakdown…
Guinevere was the lottery machine used for last night’s draw, this machine has proved popular in the last few weeks, making three appearances this month, but it was set of balls number 8 that complimented this time, last used on Saturday night.
So how did the lottery machine affect the numbers? Well two shared the jackpot but there were very many smaller winners too; four players matched five main balls and the bonus, each collecting over £200,000. This added to all the smaller winners means that over £13 million was given away in prizes from last night’s Lotto draw!
The next draw from the UK Lotto will be held on Saturday evening and the estimated jackpot for that draw is now £4.4 million. If you fancy something a little bigger, then tomorrow it’s a double rollover on the Euromillions Lottery and with £36 million up for grabs it may be a draw that you want to buy lottery tickets for!
