Double Rollover for Lotto Players
National Lottery players have a tremendous amount to get excited about this week, because as well as having a EuroMillions rollover jackpot of around £24 million to play for on Friday, there is also double rollover Lotto jackpot of around £10.2 million to play for on Wednesday! Add in the £1 million Millionaire Raffle game that EuroMillions players also get to enjoy on Friday and there is more than £35 million up for grabs before the weekend arrives. Add in the jackpots that can be won from other lottery games and the opportunities to win yourself a lifetime of riches this week are incredible.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 14 January were 02, 14, 24, 39 and 44, with 06 and 07 appearing as the Lucky Star numbers for the second week running. No player won the jackpot itself (hence the rollover) but 8 players won £273,664 each by matching the 5 main numbers and 1 Lucky Star. 9 players won £69,032 each by matching 5 main numbers only, and there were 84 fourth-tier prize winners who picked up £5,283 for matching 4 main numbers and 2 Lucky Stars. The Millionaire Raffle number which made one player in the UK £1 million richer was FHG914404. Because the EuroMillions jackpot of £12.6 million wasn't won, the rollover jackpot will be worth around £24 million this Friday 21 January.
The Lotto game on Saturday 15 January offered a rollover jackpot of £6.7 million, but the winning numbers (07, 08, 21, 24, 33 and 34, with 02 as the Bonus Ball) eluded players everywhere. 9 players matched 5 main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize of £158,082 each, and another 469 players matched 5 main numbers without the Bonus Ball to win £1,895 each. A total of 650,561 Lotto prizes were won last Saturday, but now players will be looking forward to playing for the double rollover jackpot of £10.2 million this Wednesday 19 January.
Double rollovers aren't exactly regular events in the Lotto game, so when they come along they are always worth noting. Play lottery games online this week and if you don't land the £10.2 million Lotto jackpot on Wednesday you could still have a chance of winning the £24 million EuroMillions rollover jackpot (and the £1 million Millionare Raffle prize) on Friday. Enjoy the games and good luck!Monday 17th January 2011
