Four Winners in UK Lotto Game
There were four jackpot winners in the UK Lotto game last night, and the final value of that jackpot was £1,541,920, which means that each winner will be able to claim an equal share worth £385,480. That will probably be less than the successful players would have hoped to have won by matching all six main numbers, but those numbers were all in the range 03 to 22, which led to a high volume of winners and, in turn, a slightly skewed prize schedule. That said, £385,480 is still a pretty good win for a Wednesday evening, so well done to all concerned!
The Lotto numbers drawn on Wednesday 10 July were 03, 09, 10, 16, 20 and 22, and the Bonus Ball was 35. In addition to the four tickets that won the jackpot, four more tickets matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize worth £118,609 each. 519 tickets won £571 each by matching five main numbers only, 21,976 tickets matched four main numbers to win £29 each and the guaranteed prize of £10 went to each of 338,363 tickets that matched three main numbers. The next Lotto jackpot this Saturday 13 July will be worth around £3.7 million.
Health Lottery players weren’t so lucky in the jackpot department last night because no ticket was able to match all five main numbers. Those numbers were 21, 27, 28, 37 and 40, and the Bonus Ball was 02. No ticket won a second tier prize either, but more than 2,000 tickets won smaller consolation prizes at the lower levels.
Over in Ireland, the top prize in the Irish Lottery game also proved elusive. The Irish Lottery results for Wednesday were 04, 06, 17, 35, 37 and 39, and the Bonus Ball was 45. There was one ticket that matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize worth €25,000, and more than 26,000 tickets won smaller prizes. The Irish Lottery jackpot in the next game this Saturday will be worth an estimated €5.5 million.
The next big lottery event this week is the EuroMillions draw on Friday 12 July, when you will have the chance to win a brand new jackpot of around £12 million. Click here to enter your numbers today and with any luck you could soon be the proud owner of an eight-figure bank balance!
