Double Rollover Jackpot this Saturday
Yesterday we highlighted the fact that this Friday promises to be a bit of a thriller thanks to a £27 million double rollover jackpot in the EuroMillions game and a special Millionaire Raffle draw that will create 10 new millionaires instead of just one. Today we can tell you that Saturday also promises to be very exciting because we have a double rollover jackpot of around £9.2 million to play for in the Lotto game. In addition, the Lotto Raffle game will deliver 150 prizes of £20,000 each.
The Lotto results on Wednesday 9 April were 08, 17, 20, 32, 41 and 43, and the Bonus Ball number was 09. The final value of the jackpot was £6,301,902, so the estimate of £9.2 million for the next game this Saturday certainly sounds realistic. Four tickets matched five of last night's main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball to win a very handy £59,208 each, and another 145 tickets won £1,386 each by matching five main numbers only.
As always, the value of prizes continued to drop off steeply for the lowest two consolation tiers. A fourth tier prize of £150 went to each of 7,054 tickets that matched four main numbers, and 133,761 tickets won their owners £25 each by matching three main numbers. The Lotto raffle game delivered a prize of £20,000 to each of 100 winners.
With so much cash up for grabs in the Lotto game this Saturday, now would be a great time to check out a few exciting new features that we have been developing for you here at Lottery.co.uk. First, we have completely overhauled our Lotto Statistics pages to provide more data and we have introduced visual representation of key points to make the information more accessible than ever before. For example, we can tell you just by glancing at the page that the most overdue numbers right now are 18 and 06, and that they were both last drawn on Wednesday 22 January. The next four most overdue numbers are 42, 36, 15 and 24.
Next, for those of you who don't want to select your own numbers or who need a few more numbers to populate additional entries, we have a new-look Lotto Number Generator that will randomly generate anything from 1 to 10 sets of numbers for you at the touch of a mouse button.
However you pick your numbers, click here to buy your tickets online and good luck in the big money games that are coming up. Who knows... this just might be the weekend that changes your life forever!
