Big Weekend for Lottery Players!
No player was able to match all six of the main numbers drawn in the midweek Lotto game this week, so the jackpot rolled over to the next game this Saturday 16 May. That will give players the chance to win a top prize of around £5.7 million, and the Lotto Raffle game on the same night will create 50 winners of £20,000 each, guaranteed. Of course, all of that will follow the excitement of a £10 million jackpot in the EuroMillions game and a guaranteed £1 million prize in the Millionaire Maker draw on Friday, so once again it promises to be another big weekend!
The Lotto results on Wednesday 13 May were 01, 05, 21, 33, 34 and 47, and the number 31 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. There were six tickets that matched five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball to land a second tier consolation prize worth £33,076 each. The third tier saw 126 entries win £1,337 each by matching five main numbers only, and more than 131,000 tickets won their owners smaller prizes of £138 or £25 each by matching four or three main numbers only, respectively.
This was the second week in which the midweek Lotto Raffle game created a guaranteed winner of £1 million in addition to the 50 usual prizes of £20,000 each. The millionaire-making Lotto Raffle number this week was AQUA 2964 9660, so if you haven’t yet checked your Raffle numbers, you might want to do so now.
Lottery statistics fans may have noticed that the midweek game this week saw the appearance of one of the most overdue numbers (34) and one of the most common numbers (33). That means the most overdue to watch out for in the next game on Saturday are now 32, 16, 13, 12, 08 and 26. The most common numbers continue to be 23, 40, 44, 38, 30 and 33.
EuroMillions players who want to keep a similar eye on the statistical highlights should be looking out for the most overdue main numbers 16, 41, 09, 15 and 33, as well as for the most overdue Lucky Star numbers 04 and 05. The most common main numbers are 50, 04, 44, 38 and 25, and the most common Lucky Stars are 03 and 05.
