EuroMillions Passes £140 Million As Lotto Player Wins £18.1 Million
It was a sensational weekend for lottery players as one lucky ticket holder snapped up £18.1 million on Lotto to become the biggest winner of 2018, while the EuroMillions jackpot rolled over once again and will now be worth £141 million for Tuesday night.
The Lotto jackpot had been climbing since two participants split £17.2 million on Saturday 20th January, and a run of seven rollovers had pushed it to its highest value since the start of the year.
The numbers drawn on Saturday were 5, 8, 9, 10, 38 and 53, with Bonus Ball 56. Over 1.5 million players landed prizes, ranging from a free Lotto Lucky Dip for matching two main numbers to £81,394 for matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball, but the night belonged to the ticket holder who matched all six main numbers to scoop a stunning eight-figure reward.

A EuroMillions jackpot of £133.3 million had been on offer on Friday for players across all nine participating countries, and more than 2 million prizes were given away on a thrilling night. Five ticket holders, including two from the UK, matched all five main numbers plus one Lucky Star to pocket £224,264 each, but the top prize remained tantalisingly out of reach.

Friday’s rollover took the EuroMillions jackpot closer to its cap, but players all over the continent will be hoping to land the top prize in the next draw to bring it crashing down and boost their bank balance to the tune of around £141 million.
