15 Lotto Jackpot Winners in April
The last Lotto game of the month was played on Saturday, and three tickets managed to catch all six main numbers drawn to share the £6,147,975 jackpot. Not only does that give each of the Saturday winners a personal fortune of £2,049,325, it also brings the total number of this year's April jackpot winners to 15. This time last month, those players were only dreaming about winning, but they have now seen their dreams come true and we here at Lottery.co.uk would like to congratulate each and every one of them!
The Lotto results that added another three jackpot winners to the tally on Saturday 27 April were 01, 13, 25, 39, 41 and 44, and the Bonus Ball was 26. There were 17 tickets that matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a consolation prize of £77,929 each, and 439 tickets matched five main numbers only to win a third-tier prize worth £1,886 each. Another 460,182 tickets won smaller prizes of £80 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers. The midweek Lotto jackpot this Wednesday 1 May is expected to be worth around £2 million.
Over in Ireland, one ticket matched all six main numbers drawn in the Irish Lotto game (18, 22, 23, 26, 32 and 42) to scoop a jackpot worth €3,595,558. There were no second-tier prize winners, but 28 tickets won €2,447 each by matching five main numbers. The total number of prizes won was 36,694, and the next Irish Lotto jackpot this Wednesday will be worth an estimated €2 million.
Whilst UK and Irish lottery players fared very well in the Lotto jackpot stakes on Saturday, the EuroMillions jackpot celebrations went to the owner of one ticket that had been purchased in Portugal. The EuroMillions results on Friday 26 April were 11, 16, 24, 38 and 40, with the numbers 02 and 05 appearing as the Lucky Stars, and the jackpot landed by the Portuguese ticket was worth €32,469,030, which equates to £27,335,676.
Five EuroMillions tickets (one of which was purchased in the UK) matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star number to win £218,569 each, and eight tickets won their owners £45,535 each by matching five main numbers only. The total number of prizes won was 2,670,946, and that doesn’t include the Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million that was won by the ticket bearing the number VMV563125.
With so many Lotto jackpot winners having been created in April, players will be keen to see if the success continues into May. We will get our first clue about that on Wednesday, but first we have a brand new jackpot of around £12 million to play for in the EuroMillions game this Tuesday 30 April.
