Hot Tickets Return to Health Lottery
Hot Ticket raffle prizes will be making a return to the Health Lottery game from Saturday 8 March, giving players the chance to win up to £50,000 in extra cash prizes each and every week. The Health Lottery is already extremely popular thanks to the low cost of its tickets and the fact that the value of the top prize is fixed no matter how many people win it, so having Hot Ticket prizes back in the mix for a limited period (until Saturday 29 March) will make the game even more attractive.
The Health Lottery results in the midweek game on Wednesday 5 March were 04, 06, 13, 45 and 49, and the Bonus Ball number was 05. No ticket matched all five main numbers and so there were no winners of the top prize on this occasion, but over 4,000 tickets matched fewer numbers to win a consolation prize.
When the Hot Ticket prizes are reintroduced this weekend, extra cash will be up for grabs in every Saturday and Wednesday game. On Saturdays there will be one Hot Ticket prize of £10,000, four of £5,000 and five of £2,000 to be won. On Wednesdays there will be two prizes of £5,000 to be won.
In the midweek Lotto game on Wednesday 5 March the results were 01, 04, 05, 08, 25 and 46, and the Bonus Ball number was 30. There were two tickets that matched all six main numbers to share the jackpot, which had a final value of £1,563,684. That was less than the £2.2 million that had been estimated, but we doubt that the winners will be too disappointed. After all, £781,842 each is still quite a big win!
Three tickets matched five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball number to win £41,604 each and more than 193,000 tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. In addition, the Lotto Raffle game created 50 winners of £20,000 each, and the next Lotto game this Saturday 8 March will offer a jackpot of around £4.4 million.
Well done to everyone who won a prize in any of the midweek lottery games just mentioned, and good luck to those of you who will be playing for big money this weekend. The EuroMillions Superdraw game on Friday 7 March is the biggest of the bunch, so click here to buy your tickets online and you may soon be celebrating a win worth £80 million!
