Four Midweek Jackpot Winners
There were four midweek jackpot winners in the Lotto game on Wednesday 24 March. The jackpot weighed in at £2,223,516, so each winning ticket is now worth £555,879. The lottery results that produced this latest batch of winners were 03, 05, 23, 28, 42 and 49, and the Bonus Ball was 41. The Lotto jackpot has now been reset and will be worth an estimated £4.5 million this Saturday 27 March, but there is also a massive EuroMillions double rollover jackpot worth around £40 million to play for on Friday 26 March, so if you harbour dreams of getting rich quick the lottery games this weekend could help them come true!
This is the second time in as many draws that Lotto winners have had to share the jackpot. Last Saturday, five players matched all six numbers to win £791,583 each, and now four players have won £555,879 each. Those aren’t particularly dismal amounts of prize money by any means, but National Lottery players everywhere will now be hoping that the run of shared jackpots will soon come to an end – preferably with a single winner scooping the £4.5 million jackpot outright this Saturday!
Five players matched five of the main Lotto numbers and the Bonus Ball on Wednesday to win a second-tier prize of £136,831 each, and another 338 players matched five main numbers only to win £1,265 each. In total the midweek Lotto draw paid out 381,015 prizes with a total value of £7.87 million, so there are plenty of people around the country who are at least a little richer (and some are much richer) for having participated.
The lottery games this weekend are sure to put a smile on the face of even more players. With a EuroMillions double rollover jackpot of £40 million up for grabs on Friday, a Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million guaranteed to be won on the same day and a Lotto jackpot £4.5 million on Saturday, you have three chances to change your life forever – and that’s not including games like Thunderball and Dream Number!
Of course, if you want to stand a chance of winning yourself any kind of prize this weekend you need to get involved, so buy lottery tickets online today and good luck!
