Five New UK Lottery Millionaires
Five new lottery millionaires were created in the UK last Friday and Saturday thanks to the Millionaire Raffle and Lotto games. As always, the Millionaire Raffle game gave one EuroMillions player a prize of £1,000,000 and the winning number on Friday was LHZ360128. Then, on Saturday 24 March, four tickets matched all six main numbers drawn in the Lotto game to share a jackpot worth £4,309,308. The Lotto results were 06, 24, 27, 31, 39 and 45, with 32 drawn as the Bonus Ball, so the four jackpot winners who matched all six of those main numbers can now claim £1,077,327 each.
As far as the EuroMillions game itself was concerned, the results on Friday 23 March were 09, 15, 23, 31 and 50, and the Lucky Star numbers were 08 and 11. One ticket purchased in France matched all seven numbers to win the jackpot outright, so the owner of that ticket is now £21.82 million richer than they were before the draw.
7 tickets matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £162,108 each, and 11 other tickets won £34,386 each after matching the five main numbers only. There were 43 tickets that matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £4,398 each, and the total number of EuroMillions prizes won was 2,799,197.
In the Lotto game, a dozen tickets matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second-tier prize of £110,495 each. 554 tickets won £1,495 each after matching five main numbers only, and another 521,639 tickets won either £67 or £10 each for matching four or three main numbers, respectively.
We congratulate everyone who won a prize last Friday and Saturday, but especially the EuroMillions jackpot winner and the five new lottery millionaires here in the UK. The jackpots in both games have now been reset and so there is around £12 million to play for in the EuroMillions game (and £1 million in the Millionaire Raffle) this Tuesday 27 March and around £2.2 million up for grabs in the Lotto game on Wednesday. Buy your lottery tickets online for both games and good luck!
