Jackpot Joy for Wednesday Winners
The recent run of midweek Lotto success continued last night when one player matched all six of the main numbers to land a jackpot worth £2,346,087. To make the night even more memorable, one lottery player matched all five main numbers plus the all-important Thunderball number in the Thunderball game, giving the lucky winner concerned a top prize of £500,000. We said in our previous item that players could be due another generous helping of midweek Lotto magic, and now we’re hoping that the good luck continues in the £80 million EuroMillions draw this Friday!
The Lotto results for Wednesday 5 June were 10, 18, 35, 38, 41 and 43, and the number 21 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. The jackpot had been expected to be worth around £2 million, so the fact that it had a final value of £2.34 million must have been the proverbial cherry on the cake for the person who won it outright.
Three tickets matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize worth £240,624 each, and 179 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £2,520 each. Another 207,885 tickets won smaller prizes of £98 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers only. The next Lotto game this Saturday 8 June will offer a brand new jackpot worth around £3.7 million.
As far as the Thunderball game was concerned, the main numbers drawn were 06, 15, 17, 27 and 39, and the Thunderball number was 05. We have already said that one player won the top prize of £500,000 by matching all of the numbers just mentioned, but there were plenty of other winners at the lower levels, too. The total number of prizes won was 172,361, and the total amount of cash landed in the game was £1,432,784.
There were no top prize winners in the Health Lottery game last night, but more than 3,100 tickets did manage to win a consolation prize of up to £10,000 each. The main numbers drawn were 08, 10, 24, 27 and 46, and the Bonus Ball number was 29.
Having had so much success in the midweek lottery games, we think that Brits have every reason to be optimistic about the EuroMillions game this Friday 7 June. Click here to buy your tickets online and as well as having the chance to win the £80 million jackpot you will also have a shot at becoming the latest winner in the Millionaire Raffle game! Good luck!
