Double Rollover on Wednesday

Double Rollover on Wednesday
Updated: Tuesday 12th April 2016

This week could be one of the most exciting on record for National Lottery players, because not only is there a €147.5 million SuperEnalotto jackpot to play for on Tuesday 28 September and a €100 million EuroMillions Mega Jackpot on Friday 1 October, there is also a Lotto double rollover sandwiched between the two! The Lotto jackpot on Wednesday 29 September will be worth around £10.2 million, so if you fancy your chances of becoming a multimillionaire (and most lottery players do) you will definitely want to buy yourself a few extra lottery tickets this week.

The lottery results for the Lotto draw last Saturday 25 September were 19, 22, 30, 33, 35 and 39, and the Bonus Ball was 05. Obviously nobody won the jackpot (or it wouldn’t be a double rollover draw this Wednesday) but eight players did match five of the six main numbers and the Bonus Ball to land a sizeable second tier prize of £196,122 each. Another 391 players matched five main numbers only to win £2,507 each, and over 495,000 prizes of £10 or £92 were won by players matching three or four main numbers, respectively.

The odds of winning a Lotto jackpot are a very reasonable 1 in 13,983,816, so double rollovers aren’t nearly as common as they are in games like EuroMillions or SuperEnalotto. At the same time, the odds of winning any prize at all are an impressive 1 in 54, which means that buying several tickets to increase your odds of winning the jackpot also gives you a much better chance of winning a consolation prize. And of course, if you buy several tickets that have a few numbers in common then you could win several times over if those common numbers happen to be drawn.

With a £10.2 million double rollover jackpot on offer this Wednesday, many lottery players will be seeking inspiration concerning the numbers that they choose to enter. Lottery statistics are useful in this respect, and we can tell you that the Lotto numbers which are currently most overdue to make an appearance are 23, 44, 11, 37, 38 and 45. Will any of those numbers help someone to land the double rollover jackpot this Wednesday? The only way to find out is to wait and see, so buy lottery tickets online today and good luck!
