February Numbers for Lotto
All six main numbers drawn in the Lotto game on Wednesday 03 February were within the range 1 to 28, which just happens to be the number of days in the current month. The lottery results were 03, 11, 12, 20, 21 and 28. The Bonus Ball number was 31. The jackpot, which was worth £1,942,838, was won by a single ticket, though of course it is too early for any details of that winner to have been made available. Lottery players all over the country will now be looking forward to the £85 million Mega Jackpot offered by the EuroMillions game this Friday 05 February.
The Lotto game on Wednesday created 448,709 winners in total, and that figure includes the jackpot winner mentioned a moment ago. Seven lucky players matched five of the main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win £85,399 each, and 518 players matched five main numbers only to win £721 each. 26,605 players picked up £30 prize for matching four main numbers, and all of the other winners collected £10 for matching three main numbers.
Our guess is that the majority of those winners will be purchasing tickets for the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot game where the prizes are set to be even better. Although you’ll obviously need a bit more luck to win the EuroMillions jackpot than you would to win a Lotto jackpot, winning £85 million outright would – according to the 2009 edition of the Sunday Times Rich List – make you around £5 million richer than Robbie Williams, Sir Sean Connery and many other celebrities.
Even if you ended up having to share the Mega Jackpot with four other winners, you would still win £17 million each, which would be more than enough for most people to make their wildest dreams come true. In fact, most people would be quite happy to win just a million, and in that case the Millionaire Raffle game could still put a massive smile on your face even if the main EuroMillions draw lets you down.
You can buy lottery tickets online for the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot game on Friday, and also for the next Lotto game on Saturday 06 February, where the jackpot will be worth around £4.5 million. Keep those fingers crossed and good luck!Thursday 4th February 2010
