A Lotto Love for Jackpot Winner
Today is Saint Valentine’s Day, which means that millions of people will be thinking about chocolates, roses, Champagne and romance. One person, however, will probably be thinking about the £2,054,233 Lotto jackpot that they won last night! The midweek Lotto results for Wednesday 13 February were 06, 14, 20, 23, 29 and 49, and the Bonus Ball was 48. Romance is all well and good, but a lottery jackpot win arguably takes a lot longer to wear off, so we hope that the midweek winner and the £2 million Lotto prize have a long and happy future together!
Whilst the Lotto jackpot was the catch of the day on Wednesday, the second-tier prize was also very attractive. Seven tickets won £90,295 each by matching five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball, and although that isn’t exactly the Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt of lottery prizes, it certainly isn’t one that you’d need beer goggles for.
242 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £1,632 each, and another 282,844 tickets won either £58 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers. All told, there were 283,094 tickets that won a prize in the midweek game last night, so there was clearly a whole Lotto love in the air. The jackpot in the next Lotto game this Saturday 16 February will be worth around £3.9 million.
Over in Ireland, the Irish Lotto game teased players with a Wednesday jackpot of €3.49 million, but sadly no player managed to win it. The main numbers drawn were 03, 12, 29, 38, 41 and 43, and the Bonus Ball was 01. A single ticket won a second-tier prize worth €25,000 by matching five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball, and 24,510 tickets won smaller prizes at the lower levels. The next Irish Lotto jackpot this Saturday will be worth around €4 million.
Millions of players attempted to woo the Lotto jackpot on Wednesday, and one succeeded, but the good news for everyone else is that there are plenty more fish in the sea. The EuroMillions jackpot this Friday is looking particularly sexy, with an ample top prize of £44 million, so visit this page to buy your tickets and you just might have reason to get hot and flustered over the weekend.
Good luck and Happy Valentine’s Day!
