Four Tickets Share Rollover Jackpot
Four tickets shared a rollover jackpot worth £5,748,880 in the Lotto game on Saturday, giving each one a very impressive value of £1,437,220. We can’t really say for sure what it is like to wake up on a Monday morning as a brand new millionaire, but we are fairly confident that it must feel pretty good, so a big well done to the lucky players who made it happen! For those of you who haven’t yet checked your tickets, the Lotto results on Saturday 13 April were 03, 13, 23, 27, 41 and 49, and the Bonus Ball was 06.
There were 20 tickets that matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number to win a second-tier prize worth £57,319 each, and 680 tickets won £1,053 each by matching five main numbers only. At the lowest tiers, over 584,000 tickets won their owners £46 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers, respectively. With the jackpot landed four times over, the top prize in the midweek Lotto game this Wednesday 17 April is expected to be worth around £2 million.
The Lotto game wasn’t the only one to surrender its jackpot in recent days because one ticket purchased in France managed to win the EuroMillions jackpot on Friday 12 April. The jackpot was worth €26,258,943, which equates to £22,422,511, and the numbers that gave the French player that very tidy sum were 05, 10, 15, 28 and 45, along with the Lucky Star numbers 03 and 09.
14 EuroMillions tickets matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £81,919 each, and five of those tickets had been purchased by players in the UK. 15 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £25,485 each, and 129 tickets won £1,481 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The total number of prizes landed was 3,088,746 and UK players collectively won over £3.5 million. As always, an additional £1 million was won by the UK player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number, and on Friday that number was LJT398744.
The Health Lottery game provided the icing on the cake last weekend when three tickets matched all five of the numbers drawn to win £100,000 each. The Health Lottery results on Saturday were 01, 07, 09, 11 and 17, and another 12,000 tickets managed to win consolation prizes of £250 or £20 each by matching four or three numbers. There will be another opportunity for players to win big in the next game this Wednesday.
Lottery fans who like seeing jackpots being landed left, right and centre have done very well these past few weeks, so let’s hope that the winning trend continues with the EuroMillions game this Tuesday.
