Fresh Lottery Jackpots Coming Up
Lottery players in the UK have two fresh lottery jackpots to play for this Friday and Saturday because there were jackpot-winners in both the midweek EuroMillions and Lotto games. Unfortunately, no player won the Irish Lotto jackpot on Wednesday 28 March, so the jackpot for the next game this Saturday 31 March will be even bigger at around €11 million. Add that to a new jackpot of around £12 million in the EuroMillions game on Friday and a UK Lotto jackpot of around £4.1 million the day after and there are plenty of opportunities for you to end the month on a winning note.
The EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday 27 March (worth £12.55 million) was won by a single ticket that had – for the second jackpot in a row – been purchased in France. The main numbers drawn were 24, 27, 29, 34 and 36, and the Lucky Star numbers were 07 and 08. Although the jackpot itself was won, there were no second-tier prizes winners, but there were eight winning tickets at the third-tier prize level, and each of those won a very handy £106,661. The winning Millionaire Raffle number on Tuesday was FGL789613.
On Wednesday 28 March the UK Lotto results were 03, 08, 16, 22, 38 and 39, and the Bonus Ball was 26. One player matched all six main numbers to win the jackpot, which was worth £2,207,374 and seven other tickets matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win £92,027 each. There were 294 winning tickets at the third-tier prize level, and each of those won £1,443 by matching five main numbers only. The remaining 306,798 prize winners won either £57 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers, respectively.
In the Irish Lotto game on Wednesday 28 March the numbers drawn were 11, 13, 17, 23, 28 and 40, and the Bonus Ball was 06. The jackpot, which no player won, weighed in at a whopping €10.37 million. 2 tickets matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win €25,000 each, and 73 other tickets won €1,315 each by matching five main numbers only. The total number of consolation prizes won in the Irish Lotto game was 58,672.
