Big Money Midweek Lotto
Updated: Wednesday 27th April 2016
The midweek Lotto game, which takes place this evening, will offer a rollover jackpot worth an estimated £6.1 million, a guaranteed Lotto Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million and 20 guaranteed Lotto Raffle prizes of £20,000 each. All of that gives players multiple chances to win big money, and those who choose to buy more than one ticket for the draw will increase their chances even further!
Lottery fans who also play EuroMillions will appreciate tonight’s Lotto opportunity because the first EuroMillions game of the week resulted in the jackpot (which was worth £28.95 million) rolling over for the fourth time in a row. For those of you who haven’t yet checked your tickets, the results of the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday 26 April were 10, 17, 31, 32 and 42, with the numbers 02 and 05 appearing as the Lucky Stars.
Four tickets, two of which had been purchased right here in the UK, matched all five of the main numbers plus one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a second tier consolation prize worth £186,307 each. Another three tickets matched the five main numbers only to win £82,803 each, and we are delighted to confirm that all three of those tickets had also been purchased in the UK.
The fourth tier prize level saw 31 tickets win each of their owners £4,006 by matching four main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars, and more than 1.63 million smaller prizes were won across the lower levels. Players in this country won over £2.52 million, and another prize of £1 million was landed by the UK ticket that matched the Millionaire Maker code TJM549430.
The next EuroMillions game this Friday 29 April will boast a quadruple rollover jackpot which is expected to be worth around £36 million. Don’t forget that there will also be five Mega Friday Millionaire Maker prizes of £1 million and a ten-day luxury holiday to be won, so the lucky players who land one of those will have plenty to celebrate over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Of course, anyone who succeeds in winning tonight’s £6.1 million Lotto jackpot, or the £1 million Lotto Millionaire Raffle prize, will be able to start celebrating their new-found millionaire status in a matter of hours from now.
