Bank Holiday Weekend Bonanza!
Updated: Thursday 28th April 2016
The upcoming Bank Holiday weekend will be a massive one for lottery players thanks to two massive rollover jackpots and the guaranteed creation of six brand new millionaires. The EuroMillions game on Friday will boast a quadruple rollover jackpot worth around £36 million, and the Mega Friday Millionaire Maker draw will award five prize packages of £1 million and a luxury holiday. Then, on Saturday, the Lotto game will offer a double rollover jackpot of around £9.9 million, the Lotto Millionaire raffle draw will create one guaranteed winner of £1 million and the regular Lotto Raffle draw will see 20 players win £20,000 each.
The fact that the Lotto game on Saturday will offer a double rollover obviously means that no player succeeded in landing the top prize in the midweek game. That jackpot prize had a final value of just over £6.32 million, and the main numbers that eluded players on Wednesday 27 April were 12, 24, 29, 34, 39 and 57. The Bonus Ball number was 28.
There were no second tier prize winners on Wednesday, so the biggest successes in the main game were at the third tier, where 42 tickets matched five main numbers to win £1,315 each. Another 2,590 tickets won £137 each by matching four main numbers, and the smallest cash prize of £25 was won by 68,182 entries that matched three main numbers. A free Lucky Dip entry for the next Lotto game was won by 711,545 tickets that matched two main numbers.
The biggest winner overall on Wednesday was the player who matched the Lotto Millionaire Raffle number LIME 6485 4918 to win £1 million, so well done to the individual concerned. Another 20 players won a Lotto Raffle prize worth £20,000 each, and the full list of winning numbers can be viewed on our Lotto Results page.
Our Lottery Statistics tell us that the most overdue numbers for the next Lotto game on Saturday are 45, 03, 28, 46, 38 and 08. As far as the Mega Friday EuroMillions game is concerned, the most overdue main numbers are 45, 18, 35, 47 and 29, and the most overdue Lucky Stars are 04 and 08.
We will look forward to seeing if any of those numbers help someone to win either of the jackpots that are up for grabs this Friday and Saturday, but we can already be quite certain that several players are sure to be in a massively celebratory mood thanks to the Mega Friday Millionaire Maker and Lotto Millionaire Raffle games. Enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend and good luck!Published: Thursday 28th April 2016
