Lottery Jackpot Wins All Round
Jackpots were won in all three of the main lottery games played in the UK over the last few days, which were of course EuroMillions, the Lotto and the Health Lottery. In the EuroMillions game one ticket landed a staggering £58.16 million, in the Lotto game two tickets shared a £3.92 million jackpot and in the Health Lottery three tickets won the top prize of £100,000 each. There was no jackpot winner in the Irish Lotto game, so that rolls over and the jackpot is now heading for around €3 million in the next game this Wednesday 16 November.
The EuroMillions results last Friday 11 November were 01, 04, 18, 23 and 30, with the numbers 03 and 07 being drawn as the Lucky Stars. In addition to the single ticket that won the jackpot itself (the exact value of which was £58,162,735), eight tickets won £176,177 each by matching the five main numbers plus one Lucky Star. Over 3.6 million prizes were won in total, and one UK EuroMillions player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number QTK931971.
In the Lotto game on Saturday 12 November the numbers that enabled two tickets to share the jackpot of £3,927,854 were 06, 12, 13, 28, 33 and 38. Another 12 tickets matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball (which was 10) to win a second tier prize of £100,714 each. 533 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £1,417 each, and the total number of prizes won was 586,513.
The three jackpot-winning tickets in the Health Lottery last Saturday achieved their success by matching the numbers 05, 09, 14, 15 and 18. More than 25,000 other tickets won either £500 or £50 each for matching four or three numbers, respectively. This is the fourth draw in a row in which the number 05 has appeared among the results, so it will be interesting to see if it pops up again this weekend.
With so many jackpot wins taking place last Friday and Saturday, many players will be keen to see if they can help to keep the winning habit going. Buy lottery tickets online today and you can play for a £12 million jackpot in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 15 November as well as for a £2.2 million Lotto jackpot and a €3 million Irish Lotto jackpot on Wednesday. Good luck!
