Excitement Builds as Lottery Jackpots Soar
Updated: Monday 13th March 2017
The levels of excitement currently being experienced by lottery players across the country is soaring, thanks to jackpots which continue to climb in both the EuroMillions and Lotto games. The EuroMillions jackpot for the draw taking place this Tuesday is the bigger of the two, with an estimated value of £69 million, and the Lotto jackpot this Wednesday will be worth around £16.4 million.
EuroMillions players saw the jackpot roll over for the sixth draw in a row last Friday 10 March. Whilst the top prize proved elusive, more than 1.85 million prizes were landed in total, and two players in the UK won £1 million each in the associated Millionaire Maker draw, which generated the numbers XGRQ 43149 and XLTC 86318.
UK players were involved in both of the previous EuroMillions jackpot wins, which were achieved on Friday 10 February and Tuesday 14 February, so fans of the game in this country are keeping their fingers crossed that a ticket purchased in the UK will soon be able to complete the hat-trick. The most overdue main numbers for players to look out for in the £69 million game this Tuesday 14 March are 09, 12, 32, 39 and 08, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 07 and 06.
Whether or not the EuroMillions jackpot is won this Tuesday, two more UK players are guaranteed to win £1 million in the Millionaire Maker draw, so a couple of lucky participants are sure to be celebrating their new-found millionaire status before long.
The Lotto game last Saturday 11 March also delivered its sixth consecutive jackpot rollover, but over 1.27 million players still managed to win a prize of some kind. One player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle code, which was TEAL 1439 8533, and there were 20 winners of £20,000 each in the Lotto Raffle draw, the full details of which can be found on our Lotto Results page.
The most overdue numbers for the Lotto game as we head towards the first draw of the week are 12, 25, 03, 32, 10 and 48. As always, players who want to enter a random selection of numbers for the Lotto or any other game should feel free to use one of our very own Lottery Number Generators.
