Four in a Row for EuroMillions
A fourth consecutive jackpot rollover in the EuroMillions game on Friday 20 September means that players will have an even bigger prize to play for in the next draw this Tuesday. The final midweek draw of the month will offer an estimated jackpot of £45 million, and if that isn’t enough to get you excited we can tell you that the Lotto jackpot last Saturday also rolled over, which means there will be a jackpot of around £5.8 million to have a go at winning on Wednesday!
The EuroMillions results on Friday 20 September were 05, 11, 35, 38 and 45, with the numbers 02 and 03 appearing as the Lucky Stars. There were four tickets that won a second tier prize worth £288,743 each by matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star, and one of those tickets was purchased by a player in the UK, so congratulations to the lucky winner.
Nine tickets matched all five main numbers without either of the Lucky Stars to win a third tier prize worth £42,776 each, and a third of those tickets had been purchased by UK players. As always, the number of British winners increased exponentially as the prizes got smaller, and tickets purchased in this country collectively landed a staggering £3,540,594, which is quite a sum for a rollover night. The Millionaire Raffle number WHP818452 gave another player a separate prize of £1 million.
In the Lotto game on Saturday 21 September, the results were 11, 15, 36, 37, 38 and 45, with the number 09 drawn as the Bonus Ball. A second tier prize worth £181,055 went to the each of the owners of seven tickets that matched five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball, whilst 260 tickets matched five main numbers only to land a third tier prize worth £3,046 each. Over 380,000 other tickets won smaller prizes of £97 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers.
The Health Lottery draw rounded off the Saturday night lottery action, and the results were 01, 05, 36, 45 and 50. No ticket matched all of those numbers and so no player landed the best possible prize of £100,000, but there were more than 7,300 tickets that matched fewer numbers – with or without the Bonus Ball number 47 – to win a consolation prize of up to £10,000 each.
As always, we would like to say well done to everyone who picked up a prize of any kind over the last few days, and we hope that all players reading this news item will fare even better in the week ahead. Click here to buy your lottery tickets online and good luck with your numbers!
