100 Saturday Lotto Raffle Winners
There will be 100 Saturday Lotto Raffle winners this week because the jackpot in the midweek Lotto game rolled over. As regular players will be aware, the Lotto Raffle game creates 50 winners by default, but an additional 50 winners are added after every rollover in the Lotto game until the main jackpot is won, so twice as many players are guaranteed to win £20,000 each this Saturday. As far as the main Lotto jackpot is concerned, anyone who matches six main numbers will win around £6 million or (if there are multiple winners) a share thereof.
The Lotto results on Wednesday 4 June were 14, 19, 30, 31, 47 and 48, and the Bonus Ball was 16. The jackpot was worth £2,575,685, and we have already established that no player landed it, but it was still nice to see its value weigh in at almost half a million higher than estimates had suggested. Three tickets matched five of the six main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize worth £68,529 each, so well done to the lucky owners concerned.
A third tier prize of £2,237 went to each of 78 players who matched five main numbers only, whilst 5,503 tickets that matched four main numbers won their owners £167 each. There were 114,901 tickets that matched three main numbers to win £25 each, and 50 prizes of £20,000 each were won in the Lotto Raffle game.
The numbers drawn in the midweek Health Lottery game were 01, 13, 17, 26 and 41, and the Bonus Ball was 40. There were no players who matched all five main numbers to win the top prize of £100,000, but the good news is that more than 4,000 tickets picked up a consolation prize of some kind, and there will be another chance to win big on Saturday.
With the top prizes eluding Lotto and Health Lottery players in the UK, it was left to Irish players to demonstrate the way to win. One ticket matched the main numbers 13, 14, 24, 31, 35 and 43 to win a multi-rollover jackpot worth €12,155,282, and more than 41,000 tickets won consolation prizes by matching fewer numbers with or without the Bonus Ball number 21. The next Irish Lotto game will offer a brand new jackpot worth a guaranteed €2 million.
All of this means that there is plenty for players to get excited about as we approach the weekend. There is a EuroMillions jackpot of around £85 million to pursue on Friday night, another £6 million to chase in the Lotto game on Saturday and 100 guaranteed prizes of £20,000 each to try and win in the Lotto Raffle game.
