Fantastic Festive Midweek Lotto!
‘Twas the Lotto before Christmas, and if your numbers came in… Around £35.1 million, is the jackpot you’d win…’ Okay, so we realise that we weren’t cut out to be poets, and there was probably a bit too much Yoda in that poor attempt, but the sentiment is perfectly valid. Tonight’s midweek Lotto game is the last one before Santa makes his annual visit, and ten consecutive rollovers have helped the jackpot to reach a figure so high that you’d need to borrow his sleigh to reach it. Or, if you prefer, you could just buy a ticket, sit back and hope that you enjoy some festive good fortune.
Five people who have already discovered what it feels like to win big just before Christmas are the five UK EuroMillions players who matched the Millionaire Maker codes last night. If you haven’t checked your ticket yet, the five winning codes – each of which is worth £1 million and a ‘private chalet escape’ – were as follows:
The jackpot in the main EuroMillions game weighed in at just over £11 million, but no player was able to match all of the numbers that were needed to win that sum. The EuroMillions results on Tuesday 22 December were 18, 19, 20, 40 and 41, along with the Lucky Star numbers 07 and 10.
There were five tickets that matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win £167,583 each, and we can confirm that two of those tickets had been bought by players right here in the UK. Another six tickets won £46,551 by matching the five main numbers only, and over 1.65 million prizes were landed at the lower levels. The total amount of cash won by UK participants was £3,113,153, so well done to everyone who managed to grab a slice of that sum.
The next EuroMillions game will offer a jackpot that is expected to be worth around £18 million, and will take place on Christmas Day itself, so do remember to buy your tickets early. Of course, if you strike it lucky in the midweek Lotto game you could be a multi-millionaire well before then, so download one of our free Lottery Apps to help you keep abreast of the latest results over the festive season and good luck with your numbers!Published: Wednesday 23rd December 2015
