Another Saturday Lotto Jackpot Success
One ticket matched all six main numbers in the Lotto game on Saturday night to scoop a jackpot worth £5,206,351, which means that every Saturday draw this month has seen one player or more win the top prize. This is about as good a start to the new-style Lotto game as lottery organisers could have wanted, and everyone will be hoping that another winner this Wednesday will help the month to end on the highest note possible. The Lotto results for Saturday 26 October were 10, 14, 20, 22, 45 and 49, and the Bonus Ball number was 09.
There were four winning tickets at the second tier prize level, and each of those won £103,891 by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. Another 246 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £1,434 each, whilst 1,415 tickets won £14,519 each by matching four main numbers. The smallest prize of £25 went to each of 281,518 tickets that matched three main numbers. The Lotto Raffle game awarded a prize of £20,000 to each of 50 tickets.
In the Health Lottery draw a little later on Saturday night, the main numbers drawn were 05, 14, 26, 28 and 48, and the Bonus Ball number was 08. There were two tickets that caught all five main numbers and each of their owners can now claim a top prize of £100,000. More than 14,000 tickets matched fewer numbers to win a consolation prize of £10, £20, £50, £250 or £10,000 each.
All of the above took place the day after Spain landed its second jackpot win of the month in the EuroMillions game. The EuroMillions results on Friday 25 October were 02, 03, 10, 31 and 38, and the Lucky Star numbers were 06 and 10. The jackpot was worth €31,714,028, which equates to £27,080,608, so well done to the Spanish player who landed it.
Three EuroMillions tickets won a second tier prize worth €507,822 each and one ticket won a third tier prize that was also worth €507,822, and we gave both of those figures in euros because none of the winners had purchased their entries in the UK. Another 47 tickets won £3,616 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers, and the total number of prizes landed was 2,433,888. The Millionaire Raffle number on Friday was JLF031078.
Well done to everyone who won a prize on Friday or Saturday night, and good luck to everyone who intends to try and win big in the week ahead. The EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday will be worth around £12 million, so click here to buy your tickets online and you won’t have to brave the inclement weather!
