Celeb-Sized Lottery Jackpots Ahead!
Updated: Wednesday 9th April 2014
The 2012 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! began on Sunday night, and we are therefore quite pleased to tell you that there are a couple of celeb-sized lottery jackpots that can be won in the next few days. The EuroMillions jackpot rolled over on Friday to create an estimated top prize of around £133 million this Tuesday, and then on Saturday the Lotto jackpot also rolled over, giving players a jackpot of around £6.5 million to have a go at this Wednesday. It’s the kind of money that could even make Ant and Dec blush.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 9 November 2012 were 14, 21, 22, 28 and 47, with the numbers 04 and 05 being drawn as the Lucky Stars. Nine tickets matched the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a second-tier prize worth £240,159 each and two of those tickets were purchased in the UK. Of course, as is often the case when the EuroMillions jackpot rolls over, the biggest winner in the UK was the owner of the ticket that matched the Millionaire Raffle number. The winning number on Friday was PRL293442, so whoever owns the ticket with that same number can now look forward to Christmas with an extra £1 million in the bank.
14 EuroMillions tickets matched the five main numbers only to win a third-tier prize of £51,462 each, whilst 138 tickets won £2,610 each by matching four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars. The total number of prizes won was 5,186,378.
In the Lotto game on Saturday 10 November 2012, the main numbers drawn were 10, 23, 24, 25, 30 and 37, and the Bonus Ball number was 45. Five tickets won £251,880 each by matching five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball, whilst 399 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £1,972 each. Over 541,000 tickets won prizes of £67 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers.
For those of you who enjoy watching I’m A Celeb and think it might be quite nice to spend your time in five star hotels, travel from place to place by chauffeur-driven limo or even drop everything and rough it for a few weeks in a jungle somewhere, the midweek lottery jackpots could make it happen. Visit this page to buy your tickets today and if your numbers come up you can write a quick note to your boss… perhaps something like, ‘I’m now a lottery winner… and I’m getting out of here!’
