Fresh Lotto Jackpot for October!
Updated: Wednesday 1st October 2014
Today is the first day of a brand new month and, rather appropriately, Lotto players across the nation are looking forward to seeing if they can win a brand new jackpot that will be up for grabs this evening. The top prize tonight will be worth an estimated £2.1 million, and the only thing required to win that sum – or a share thereof– is for someone to match the six main numbers that will be drawn. Whether or not anyone succeeds in doing that, the Lotto Raffle game is guaranteed to create 50 lucky winners of £20,000 each.
Having a midweek Lotto jackpot to play for is good for UK lottery fans because they missed out on a big jackpot payout in the EuroMillions game last night. The EuroMillions results for Tuesday 30 September were 03, 13, 15, 33 and 42, and the Lucky Star numbers were 05 and 07. A single ticket that had been purchased in Spain matched all of those numbers to win €32,929,188, which is worth £25,668,301 at current exchange rates.
Eight tickets – two of which were entered by players in this country – matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win a second tier prize worth £97,254 each. Another six entries matched five main numbers only to win £43,224 each, and two of those tickets had been purchased in the UK too. There were 112 tickets that won £1,157 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars, and more than 2.02 million prizes were won at the lower levels. The total amount of cash won by tickets in the UK exceeded £1.98 million, and another £1 million was won by the ticket bearing the Millionaire Raffle number YVB959772.
The next EuroMillions game this Friday 3 October is of course the special Superdraw game which will offer a jackpot that is currently expected to be worth around £77 million. The good news for UK lottery fans is that you don't have to wait until then for your next chance to win yourself financial freedom because the Lotto game tonight just might make you £2.1 million richer.
Will the first Lotto game of the month make your jackpot-winning dreams come true? Will you be sipping Champagne with your breakfast tomorrow morning? Click here to buy your tickets online and you'll soon find out! Good luck!
