Another Lottery Jackpot Rollover
The EuroMillions jackpot rolled over for the third draw in a row on Tuesday, and the Wednesday Lotto jackpot got in on the tumbling action by rolling over on Wednesday. Whilst the lack of midweek jackpot winners has been a little disappointing, there is no doubt that it has given us a fantastic double-scoop of excitement to look forward to as we approach the weekend. The EuroMillions jackpot this Friday will be worth around £107 million and the Lotto jackpot on Saturday will be worth an estimated £6 million.
The Lotto results on Wednesday 12 March were 11, 12, 16, 20, 35 and 46, and the number drawn as the Bonus Ball was 34. As we have already established, no player was able to match all six main numbers, so the jackpot – which beat the official estimate by weighing in at £2,455,221 – rolled to the next game. One ticket matched five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize worth £195,973, so the owner of that successful entry turned out to be the biggest winner of the night.
A third tier prize of £1,540 was won by each of 108 tickets that matched five of the main numbers, so you can see for yourself just how much that Bonus Ball was worth to the second tier winner last night. There were 5,781 tickets that matched four numbers to win £152 each, and another 124,552 tickets landed the smallest prize of £25 each by matching three numbers.
The Lotto Raffle game created 50 winners of £20,000 each last night, and because the jackpot in the main Lotto game rolled over, the number of guaranteed Lotto Raffle winners this Saturday will increase to 100. That alone would probably be a good enough reason to buy yourself an extra ticket or two, so when you also consider the £6 million jackpot that is on offer, taking full advantage of the opportunity to win is a no-brainer.
We know for a fact that one EuroMillions player will win £1 million in the Millionaire Raffle draw on Friday, and we can be equally certain that 100 players will win £20,000 each in the Lotto Raffle draw on Saturday. What we don't know is how players will fare with the jackpots in the main games. Head this way to give yourself a chance of winning and you'll soon find out! Good luck!
