August Mega Friday Millionaire Maker
The August Mega Friday Millionaire Maker game takes place this Friday 28 August, and will create ten brand new millionaires, guaranteed. As well as winning £1 million, each Millionaire Maker winner will enjoy a Private Island Getaway so that they can relax and get accustomed to their new-found wealth in style. Every EuroMillions entry purchased in the UK gives its owner a separate chance of winning a Millionaire Maker prize, so if you want to increase your odds of becoming a millionaire this Friday, all you have to do is purchase an extra ticket or two.
Two people who know exactly how the simple act of buying a lottery ticket can translate to winning millionaire status are the owners of the two tickets that matched all six main numbers in the midweek Lotto game this week. The Lotto numbers for Wednesday 26 August were 03, 04, 07, 18, 48 and 49, and the number 32 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. The final value of the jackpot, which had rolled over in the previous game, was £3,807,818, so each of the top prize winners can now claim an equal share worth £1,903,909.
There was just one player who matched five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball, so the second tier prize was a tad larger than average, and was worth £141,532. The third tier saw 210 tickets win £572 each by matching five main numbers only, 9,629 entries won £66 each by matching four main numbers and the smallest prize of £25 went to each of 175,151 tickets that matched three main numbers. In addition, 50 players won a Lotto Raffle prize worth £20,000 each.
The next Lotto game this Saturday will now offer a brand new jackpot worth an estimated £3.8 million, so those of you who want a second bite at the Lotto cherry can help yourself. Of course, if you participate in the EuroMillions game this Friday, you might already be a big winner before Saturday arrives. The jackpot in the main EuroMillions game is expected to be worth around £10 million, and if you don’t win that you could still win one of the ten £1 million prizes up for grabs in the Mega Friday Millionaire Maker game.
As you can see, there is plenty to be excited about over the next few days, so buy your tickets early to avoid any last-minute glitches, good luck with your numbers and have a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend!Published: Thursday 27th August 2015
