EuroMillions Jackpot Worth £80 Million!
The EuroMillions jackpot this Friday 22 March will be worth a guaranteed €100 million, so unless something goes seriously awry in the currency market that will give UK players the chance of winning around £80 million. If one ticket matches all seven of the numbers that will be drawn, the owner of that ticket will win the jackpot in its entirety, instantly coming into the kind of money that most people can only dream about. Even better, EuroMillions doesn’t care about the race, sex, religion, education, status, dress sense, shoe size or party-political preferences of those who participate, so literally everyone who enters the game will have a chance of winning!
You can tell we’re excited about the EuroMillions game to come, but there are at least a couple of people who are more excited about the Lotto game just gone, because two tickets matched all six main numbers last night to share a jackpot worth £1,997,902. That gave each winner a personal Lotto fortune worth £998,951, and the Lotto results which made it happen on Wednesday 20 March were 04, 11, 14, 27, 43 and 46.
Eight tickets matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball number (which was 42) to win a second-tier prize of £76,842 each, whilst 312 tickets won £1,231 each by matching five main numbers only. Another 290,481 tickets matched either four or three of the main numbers to win a smaller prize of £54 or £10 each.
The next Lotto jackpot this Saturday 23 March has been given an estimated value of £3.8 million, and that somehow seems even more attractive when you consider the fact that it comes just one day after the £80 million EuroMillions event.
Whatever games you intend to play over the next few days, do be aware that the EuroMillions excitement could well lead to extensive queues in offline retail outlets. It is highly recommended that you head this way to buy your tickets online today so that you don’t get caught up in any ‘ticket traffic jams’ that might occur as the £80 million draw approaches. Good luck with your numbers and we wish you all a winning weekend!
