Bumper Weekend for Lottery Players!
This week promises to end with a bang as both the EuroMillions and Lotto games give lottery players the chance to win more money in the space of a few minutes than most people will earn in a lifetime. The EuroMillions game this Friday 17 April will offer a double rollover jackpot that is expected to be worth around £22 million, and on the same night the Millionaire Maker game guarantees to award one UK player a prize of £1 million. Then, on Saturday 18 April, the Lotto game will offer a brand new jackpot which is estimated to be worth around £4 million.
The fact that the Saturday night Lotto game will be offering a brand new jackpot obviously means that the top prize was landed in the midweek draw. There was in fact one winning ticket on Wednesday 15 April, and the numbers that enabled it to win the double rollover jackpot were 01, 18, 22, 25, 31 and 39. The jackpot had a final value of £7,732,498, so well done to the lucky winner!
Two tickets matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number 42 to win a second tier prize worth £105,353 each. Another 162 tickets won their owners £1,104 each by matching five main numbers only, and 8,651 tickets matched four main numbers to win £109 each. There were 161,949 entries that won £25 each by matching three main numbers, and the Lucky Raffle game saw 50 players win £20,000 each.
One of the most overdue Lotto numbers (39) made an appearance on Wednesday, so players who want to include one or more of the most overdue numbers on their tickets for the next game on Saturday should now be considering the numbers 32, 45, 16, 13, 35 and 34.
As far as the £22 million EuroMillions game on Friday is concerned, the most overdue numbers to watch out for are 16, 36, 01, 07 and 41, along with the most overdue Lucky Star numbers 11 and 07. Astute observers will have noticed that the number 07 is most overdue as both a main number and as a Lucky Star, so it will be interesting to see if it helps anyone to win the top prize on Friday.
